The ex-Italy worldwide, who retired from football two years ago, wants to play against Cristiano Ronaldo and has told his agent to try to find him a club.

Ronaldo finished with his usual confidence and poise after latching onto a looping pass over the midfield from attacking midfelder Federico Bernardeschi.

Ronaldo and Juan Cuadrado were then frustrated in front of goal, but Dybala took advantage of their misses to convert for Juve's fourth on 40 minutes.

One of the biggest stories in sports this year is Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to play for Italian soccer club Juventus.

Ronaldo was the main attraction in Villar Perosa, but Allegri thinks his team has become much stronger as a whole during the transfer window. Ten minutes later, he pressured Riccardo Capellini into an own goal to make it 2-0 to his side.

The actor drove his fans into a frenzy by posting: "my name's Elba, Idris Elba ", along with a selfie. This time, a report from United Kingdom publication The Daily Star has stirred excitement.

He was at both the 2017 Champions League final in Cardiff, when Ronaldo scored a brace as Real Madrid hammered Juve 4-1, and in Madrid last season when the Portuguese slotted the last-gasp penalty that knocked Juve out in the quarter finals.

The Portugal captain did not participate in any of the International Champions Cup games in the United States.

Juventus, though, have signed Ronaldo not to cement their domestic dominance, after winning seven straight league titles, but to boost their worldwide profile and bag their first Champions League triumph in over two decades.

It was Ronaldo's prowess in Europe that caused Juventus to splash a club record fee, as they look to put two lost finals in the last four years behind them and try for European glory for the first time since 1996.

It was not only about Ronaldo, though, as Juve made their final preparations ahead of the start of the new Serie A season next Saturday, when they will travel to Chievo.
