Cristiano Ronaldo might not have kicked a ball in anger for the Old Ladies of Juventus but these are indeed new times for the Turin giants and the whole of Italian football.
After making a shocking €105million move to Juve a fortnight ago, the world of football has been in an expectant mood as the top scorer in Real Madrid’s history takes his trade to one of Europe’s more physical leagues, at a perceptively old age of 33- football wise.
He scored 450 goals in 438 games in his 9-year success at the Spanish capital, winning the FIFA player of the year four times in the process.
Expectedly, he has brought a new belief to the Bianconeri fans who have gone all out to obtain tickets to see their new man on show. Juve boss, Andrea Agnelli and Sporting Director, Giuseppe Marrotta have expressed belief in the economic viability of the deal, citing Rinaldo’s great marketability as one of the reasons why they paid through the needle’s eye for his services.
A statement on the club’s official website said;
So, just under a month until the start of the season, the goal of 25,300 season tickets has already been reached. Which, together with the 4,000 premiums bring the total season tickets to 29,300. All set to experience a show season at the Allianz Stadium!
Thank you for your
Juventus had increased their ticket prices as part of mechanisms put in place to balance the books after making their most expensive acquisition in history.
