Rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo moving out of Real Madrid is nothing new for the Los Blancos fans but this time their worst nightmares have come true.
At the end of the 2017-18 season the Portuguese star had hinted at the fact that he might be on his way out of the Bernabeu and so when the transfer news of Juventus coming after Ronaldo picked up wind, fans outrightly started panicking.
And the fact that Juventus was ready to pay such a huge transfer fee for Ronaldo came as a bit of shock for many – simply because the Turin based out are not known as a big spending club in European football.
But in the end, the deal has gone through with Juventus paying a whopping €112 million in the form of transfer fees for the 33-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo.
Now that the dust has settled down across the transfer, people are beginning to see how big a deal have Juventus pulled off exactly.

While the whole of the footballing world is rejoicing at the move(except for Real Madrid fans) a certain group of people are not too happy with Cristiano Ronaldo arriving in Turin.
And these people work for FIAT.
Yes, FIAT, the automobile company based out of Italy that manufactures cars.
But what problem could the workers at FIAT have with Juventus buying Cristiano Ronaldo?
Well, if you didn’t know already, the Agnelli family of Turin are the majority owners of Juventus and the family also happen to own FIAT.
And the Agnelli family is the primary reason why Juventus have been able to purchase Cristiano Ronaldo.
This though has not gone down too well with the employees at FIAT and the workers at one plant are planning to go on a strike from Sunday till Tuesday.
The workers are of the view that instead of spending so much money on buying one player, the Agnelli family could try and use that same money to enhance the quality of life for the workers.
FIAT has seven plants across the country and reports suggests that the strike in the first plant could have a cascading effect and the workers at the other plants may also choose to go on a strike in order to make their voices heard.
