Safe to say Cristiano Ronaldo is absolutely loving life at Juventus following his £100m move from Real Madrid in the summer.

As it stands Juve are top of Serie A and eight points clear of their closest challengers, Napoli. An eighth-consecutive Scudetto seems imminent.

In the Champions League the Old Lady are going strong, too, having won four out of five group games to secure a place in the last 16.

They just need to beat Young Boys in their final group game on Wednesday night to finish top above Manchester United.

And as for Ronaldo himself - well, the 33-year-old has continued his fine goalscoring form with 10 goals in 15 league appearances for Juventus.

Ronaldo also has five assists in Serie A, meaning he's averaging a goal or assist every league game at the moment.

Things are going very well for Ronaldo and in a recent interview with Gazzetta he explained what's changed since swapping Madrid for Turin.

"I'm very happy," said the Portuguese, "the city is really nice, the fans are very kind and Juventus is a fantastic club that is incredibly organised.

"The players here are humble and they work very hard. It's been fantastic. This is the best group I've ever played with.

"At Juventus we really feel like a team, unlike elsewhere where some players feel like they are better than others.

"Here everyone is humble. If [Paulo] Dybala or [Mario] Mandzukic don't score you see still see them happy. That is beautiful. Juventus is more of a family."

Ronaldo was also asked about any of his old Real Madrid teammates joining him at Juventus and he suggested there's only one player he would bring in the future: Marcelo.


"Marcelo or [Marco] Asensio to Juventus? I see that you write about everyone, from James [Rodriguez] to [Gareth] Bale to Asensio," he added.

"But to be honest, Juventus does not need any other players. For the future? I don't know, you might want to speak to the president. Marcelo? He is a strong player."

It's no real surprise that Ronaldo wants Marcelo at Juventus after the bond they created throughout their nine years together at Real Madrid.

Marcelo is also widely regarded as the world's best left-back, so that's another obvious reason for Ronaldo wanting him.
