Probably a good deal for all sides. Real get a lot of cash for a 33 year old, more cash than he would make them if he stayed there (all ronaldo fans have their Madrid jersey by now). Juventus sign a star who will sell a lot of shirts and will add quality to their team. And Ronaldo will win another league and be the best player in it.
It will force the other teams to get better, that's how competition works.
Or it could widen the gap between Juventus (who is pretty large already) and the rest, turning the Italian league into a one trick pony league.Oranje wrote: ↑Thu Jul 12, 2018 9:44 pmI'd say it's very good for Italian football. A lot of people who never watched it will be doing so because of Ronaldo, like Relly said it'll raise the profile of the Serie A. All clubs will profit from it I think.
And Juventus being too dominant is already a fact, that'll stay the same for now yeah.
With the exception of maybe the Premier League, there is no other league where the equivalent of 'Cagliari vs Bologna' draws a lot of (international) viewers... I don't tend to stay at home to watch Augsburg vs Mainz and Leganes vs Eibar on a saturday either (any day to be honest ).ArizonaRed wrote: ↑Fri Jul 13, 2018 2:44 pmWhile I think you are right that Ronaldo might get a few extra viewer for Juventus I just do not see a PL or Le Liga or Bundesliga supporter going out of their way to watch Cagliari vs Bologna on a Saturday. The top six clubs may get some extra viewer when they go head to head, but overall I do not see the league (all 20 teams) benefitting from Ronaldo's presence.
