I thought Ronaldo to Juventus was impossible: Chiellini

Football News: The Veteran Juventus defender says first he believes that it was impossible for the Portuguese star to join the Serie A champions in this season.

Chiellini couldn’t believe that Ronaldo would join the Old Lady in this season.

On this Monday the Five times Ballon d’Or winner joined the Juventus training after he left Madrid for Juventus for €112million.

In the month of may, the Portuguese ace gave a hit that he might not continue with Madrid after their third successive Champions League win.

The Juventus centre-half was in a doubt when the transfer rumours were there in the air that the Madrid star will join the Serie A side in this season.

The Juventus centre half voiced: "[The first time I heard about Ronaldo], I said to my friends, 'Nah, it's impossible,'"

"After one day, [I thought] maybe it is possible.

"With our manager, with our director … it's a reality. Juventus is growing … year after year, and we need a champion like Cristiano.

"We are excited, we are ready to work with him; all the parts of the club, the players, the marketing manager, the director, are ready to improve with Cristiano and we hope he can help us to achieve our target."

Juventus were busy in this transfer window as they have signed oao Cancelo, Mattia Perin and Emre Can along with Ronaldo, and also this season their main striker Higuain could leave the club and they could resign Bonucci from AC Milan who left Juve just one year ago.

 Chiellini added: "Leonardo, for me, is a friend,"

"I pass my holiday with him and my family.

"I know about his quality, but I don't know. It's not easy, and I want to have respect to my team-mates … I'm not president or director, so we will see what happens at the end of the Serie A — we will see if Leonardo is here."
