Cristiano Ronaldo 3/1 to win Champions League with Juventus

Football Betting

It is official. Cristiano Ronaldo will be Juventus player next season after Real Madrid accept a £99 million bid for the forward. The 33-year-old will now move on to a new challenge after nine years at the Bernabeu and while he is not going to end up being the most expensive footballer in the world, the move does ensure that is the most expensive footballer in the world over the age of 30.

During his time at Real Madrid, he collected four Champions League titles and two La Liga titles. While that may not sound a lot in nine years he, of course, has achieved so much more. Like all of his personal awards and all of the goalscoring records that he has set in his time with the club. During his time with Real Madrid, he had six different seasons having netted over 50 goals for them.

Will those kinds of goalscoring exploits continue in Turin? He is currently 3/1 to score 40 or more goals in Serie A next season or he can be backed at 12/1 to make it to at least 50 which would be some feat*(Betting Odds were taken from Betfair on July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

It was in the UEFA Champions League last season against Juventus when he scored that ridiculous overhead kick and he is 5/2 to score a bicycle kick* (Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) in Serie A next season while the Portuguese star is at 4/5 to be the Serie A top goalscorer*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

What does he bring to Juventus?

The bigger question really is what he will bring to Juventus? They are the powerhouses of Italy and they have been one of the big forces in the UEFA Champions League. Juventus are a 9/1 option at the moment*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to win the UEFA Champions League next season with Ronaldo in their ranks and you can even back the Portuguese star at 3/1 to get a goal against his now former club Real Madrid*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

You can also take that same price on him winning the Champions League at any time during his stay at Juventus. Ronaldo is set to sign a four-year contract with the Turin giants. What his arrival will do is strengthen their domestic power and the Old Lady is at 2/5 to win Serie A next season*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

Transfer Knock-on Effect

Gareth Bale is now 1/4 odds to stay at Real Madrid*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) at the summer transfer window. Much has been made about him leaving over the summer after not getting as much game time as he would have liked last term. Ronaldo going will have created space for him. Beyond the Spanish giants, Manchester United are the club at the shortest price to be his club next season with the Red Devils at 10/3 odds*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.).

So Bale may get a reprieve at the Bernabeu if he wants to stay but it is likely that Real Madrid are going to go and spend to rejuvenate their squad. The speculation is that they are going to break the bank to get Neymar there and he is a 2/1 option*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to join up with them for next season.

Another likely strong target for Real Madrid is going to be Eden Hazard who is at 5/4*(Betting Odds were taken from July 11th, 2018 at 00:46 a.m.) to make the move there, with other notable target names being Kylian Mbappe, Mo Salah and Harry Kane.
