The Italian champions caused one of the surprises of the summer when they announced that they have completed the signing of the Portugal international on a long-term contract.
Ronaldo enjoyed a nine-year spell at the Bernabeu and could have opted to end his career in Spain, but the attacker has said that making the switch to Turin was an “easy decision”.
The 33-year-old told DAZN: “I never expected to play in this team, but some things happen naturally, for me it was an easy decision, what was done in Madrid is incredible, I won everything, my family lives there, but it’s part of the past.
“The small details make the big difference at the end of the day so. I would say what I saw in the stadium helped. And, of course, when the people start to applaud me in the stadium I was like: ‘Wow’.”
Ronaldo made his Serie A debut as Juventus edged to a 3-2 victory over Chievo last weekend.
