Ronaldo roadshow heads to China as Juve new boy embarks on ‘CR7 Tour’

The 33-year-old Portugal captain was officially unveiled in Turin on Monday evening.

Cristiano Ronaldo was all smiles as he prepared to jet off for a personal tour of China following his £99.2million move to Juventus from Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old Portugal captain was unveiled as the Italian club’s marquee signing on Monday evening.

Ronaldo, who has signed a four-year deal, insisted he remains as hungry as ever for continued success, having won the Champions League in three succesive campaigns with Los Blancos.

Before linking up with his new team-mates ahead of the new campaign, the Juventus forward has headed to China to fulfil sponsorship arrangements as part of his ‘CR7 Tour’.

On Wednesday morning, Ronaldo posted a picture of himself in front of a private jet on Twitter, writing: “See you soon China! #CR7TOUR #NIKEFOOTBALL”.

Juventus are set to head to the United States for the International Champions Cup, which features matches against Bayern Munich in Philadelphia on July 25, Benfica in New Jersey and then Real in Maryland on August 4.

It remains to be seen whether Ronaldo will be involved in any of those fixtures for the Bianconeri.
