Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes Cristiano Ronaldo’s club-record move to Juventus could be considered as the complete transfer. The Bianconeri acquired the services of Ronaldo on a four-year deal from Real Madrid earlier this week and Mourinho feels the Serie A holders will benefit heavily in both the footballing and marketing department with the Portuguese around.
“We see three dimensional football. Everyone will look to Italy for Cristiano, to Spain for [Lionel] Messi and England for the Premier League. At this time, Serie A has become the most important championship in the world. Everything can change in football, the prospects of teams like Inter, Milan and Roma now change, and now Juve is much stronger with Cristiano. They are more motivated by the signing, they are contributing to the quality, attention and excitement of Serie A. For this reason, I congratulate to Juventus for this coup, which involves football, marketing and merchandising. It’s the complete transfer,” he told Teleradiostereo.
