16.07.2019 » Ronaldo to win Juve the Champions League in 2020
Cristiano Ronaldo is fully-energized to be back in Turin and all set to train for the pre-season in the Maurizio Sarri era. It's been 23 years since Juventus had a taste of the Champions League glory. 18 campaigns have surpassed and after becoming finalists for five times, the Old Lady haven't had the chance to grab hold of the European trophy. However, this desperate wait can possibly be over in 2020, as Ronaldo's Juve are on their way to maximize their ammunition for the Champions League next season. There is a reason why the Turin side shocked the world almost a year ago and they knew they weren't stepping into a dangerous gamble like those you may find on Scr888. The Italian giants spent 100m on the Portuguese forward from Real Madrid, who had just come off from back-to-back three consecutive European triumphs and began their quest of their UCL target with the perfect start by getting the – as many regard Ronaldo as - Mr. Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo - Get ready for the beast!
Ronaldo's impact in signing players
Ronaldo wasn't able to eclipse the campaign last term, but his signing has benefited the Italian club in ways they had never foreseen, as the Portugal captain mere presence has proved to gain attractive players to Juventus this summer.
Paris Saint-Germain's former midfielder and new arrival, Adrien Rabiot, admitted that Ronaldo was a major reason for him to sign for the Serie A champions.
Players such as Aaron Ramsey, veteran Gianluigi Buffon and Rabiot were signed as free agents and such highly-talented players gain massive attractions from big clubs but Juventus defeated the bidding war having Cristiano Ronaldo at their side.
The hottest player in town, Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt, is on the cusp of moving to the Allianz Stadium despite interests from the likes of Barcelona, Manchester City and Manchester United. Such a mega-signing of the 19-year-old Dutch defender makes this side the ultimate favourites for the 2019/20 Champions League.
In June, after facing Portugal in the UEFA Nations League final, Netherlands defender De Ligt revealed Ronaldo had asked whether he would sign for Juve this summer. The influence and motivation that the Portuguese forward provides is something which is priceless and any player would love to be in a dressing room with such a legendary figure.
New boss targets Ronaldo
New boss Maurizio Sarri has publicly described Ronaldo being the best he has ever had in his squad already, and will be planning to revolve the team around the former Manchester United forward.
The former Chelsea manager is still considered highly in Italy and with a star-studded squad, the chase for the Champions League trophy is getting closer. Juventus will be playing a high-pressing system next season, with quick passing style and able to play under pressure are the key factors that will help elevate this team as mega-favourites for the biggest tournament.
Such a system with world class players and Ronaldo being the center of attention is what makes Juventus finally having the hope of ending their 23-year-long drought without a Champions League title, but the wait seems to be over in 2020.
After all, only Ronaldo knows best to perform at the highest level in the biggest stage of European football. If one player can help you succeed in Champions League, it's only this guy.
