CR7 finally spoke about his departure from Real Madrid for Juventus.
In an interview with France Football, the Juventus Turin striker explained that he left Real Madrid last summer because he no longer felt sufficiently considered: "I felt inside the club, especially on the part of the president (Florentino Perez) that I was no longer considered as at the beginning (...) The truth is that the president wanted me, but at the same time, he told me that my departure would not be a problem. For the first four or five years, I felt like Cristiano Ronaldo. Less after".
The Portuguese star also denies rumours that he chose to go to Juventus for financial reasons: "If I had made my transfer a money business, I would have gone to China, where I would have earned five times more than here or at Real. I didn't come to Juve for the money.
Cristiano Ronaldo also explained that his decision to leave Real had nothing to do with Zinedine Zidane's departure: "It was one of those little details that reinforced my feelings about the situation at the club," he said. If I didn't get away, it didn't hold me back.
