Madrid selling Ronaldo a 'historic error' - Calderon

Madrid selling Ronaldo a 'historic error' - Calderon

Only five out of around 1,700 workers expected for Monday's shift at a Fiat Chrysler plant in Italy participated in a strike to protest Juventus' signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, a spokesman for the carmaker said.

The Portugal global will officially become a Juventus player after his medical is completed, but both clubs have already announced the deal will go through after an agreement was reached between Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez and Juve's Andrea Agnelli.

No wonder some of those Juve fans that had gathered outside the Allianz Stadium were singing "Ronaldo, bring us the Champions (League)".

But an element of the support there choose to belt out a rather more sinister number, aimed at their Neapolitan rivals.

Ronaldo also praised Juventus, calling them the "best club in Italy".

A small union has called a strike at Fiat Chrysler's Melfi plant in Italy after its main investor, the Agnelli family, made a decision to pay 100 million euros to land Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus.

The former United man can still prove his talent at one of the biggest clubs in the world and would cement his status as a legend if he could win Juventus the Champions League trophy they so desperately want.

Instead the five-time Ballon d'Or victor will take part in a more low-key event after surprising everyone by arriving in Turin on Sunday afternoon instead of Monday morning.

He's set to become a mega-earner as well after penning a four-year deal worth €30m a season.

Italian champions Juventus have agreed to pay Real Madrid 100 million euros ($117 million) for Cristiano Ronaldo.

A five-time Ballon d'Or victor and Madrid's all-time leading goalscorer, Ronaldo helped the Spanish giants to a third consecutive Champions League crown last season after netting 44 goals in all competitions.

Speaking about the role earlier this year, Colman said she was "thrilled to be part of the Crown ". Perhaps a sack of moldy potatoes? The Crown season 3 will likely arrive sometime in 2019.
