Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu agrees with Barcelona star Lionel Messi that the Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved from Real Madrid to Juventus, will help them win the Champions League.
“[Juventus president] Andrea Agnelli has pulled off a fantastic deal. I'm sorry that La Liga has lost a star, the second in two years after Neymar. It's negative for our football, and I'm not interested in the fact Real could be weaker because we want the best football to be played here. That's the only way you can compete with the Premier League -- the richest. Ronaldo doesn't only improve Juve, but the whole of Italian football, and as far as the Champions League goes, I agree with [Lionel] Messi that Juve, with Ronaldo, are an even stronger candidate to win it,” ESPN reported.
As reported earlier, Ronaldo signed a 4-year deal with Juventus for 30 million Euro per year.
