  • Ronaldo signs for Juventus from Real Madrid

Following the recent arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Cuadrado has magnanimously agreed to vacate his shirt number at Juventus to allow the new €100 million man to wear his trademark No.7.

"It is unacceptable that while the workers of FCA and [Exor-owned vehicle manufacturers] CNH Industrial have been continually asked for huge economic sacrifices for years, the same company decides to spend hundreds of millions of euros on purchasing a footballer", USB said. The USB trade union called the acquisition unfair, announcing a strike spanning three days.

"The owners should invest in auto models that guarantee the future of thousands of people rather than enriching only one", a statement from the striking USB union said.

Juventus said Tuesday it paid €112 million ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a four-year deal with the Serie A champions.

He has scored a record 120 Champions League goals, 105 of them since moving to Madrid - 12 more than Juventus managed in that same period. "That means more sponsors, more TV money and more prize money".


Ronaldo was Real Madrid's top all-time goal scorer, with 451 goals since moving there in 2009. Portugal made the last 16 of the tournament, in stark contrast to Italy, who failed to qualify for the first time since 1958.

Later, Football Italia reported that a part of the transfer fee will be paid via Juventus' parent company Exor, which owns Fiat.

However, the impact of the stoppage is likely to be limited.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, who have their Jeep logo as the main sponsor of the Vecchia Signora's merchandise, expect a significant increase in auto sales over the next four years, with a target of 3.3 million units by 2022.
