Colombia midfielder Juan Cuadrado says he is happy to give up his Juventus No 7 shirt to the Italian champions' new signing and five-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo.

As reported earlier, former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has signed a 2-year deal with Juventus for 100 million Euros.

The USB union believes the decision is causing Fiat to miss out on investment, which the transfer money could have been used for.

Auto behemoth Fiat are based in Juve´s home city Turin and both are co-owned by the Agnelli family.

Privato said the money spent to bring Ronaldo to Italy's Serie A soccer league should have been spent on "car models that guarantee the futures of thousands of people, rather than enriching only one".

Tacchinardi began by hailing Ronaldo's arrival stating that: "He certainly gives a new image to our football".

"It's a pleasure for me and everyone to play with someone like Ronaldo, the best in the world", Cancelo said at his presentation Press conference. The factory is just one of seven Fiat Chrysler plants in Italy and the USB does not represent many workers there.

As captain of the Portuguese team in the 2018 World Cup, he scored four goals, including a hat-trick against Spain.

The Agnelli family, who have owned Juventus for more than 90 years, controls Ferrari and Fiat Chrysler through its holding company, Exor, which owns 64 per cent of Juventus.

The 33-year-old made an astonishing £100million move to Juventus on Tuesday after Real Madrid granted him permission to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.
