"It's nice to be here, I'm happy, when I chose to play in Juventus there was not a specific moment", Ronaldo told Juventus TV.

Taking on Juventus B in their annual preseason match for their fans in the lovely Villar Perosa, Ronaldo scored in the first half with a lovely run and finish inside the box.

Ronaldo finished with his usual confidence and poise after latching onto a looping pass over the midfield from attacking midfelder Federico Bernardeschi. The Portuguese latched on to a ball over the top of the defense, controlled it with one touch before sending it past the goalkeeper.

Juventus fans celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in July.

The gesture was duly appreciated by the five-time Ballon d'Or victor, who held his hands up and graciously stuck his thumbs up. Since I was a kid, I looked at this team and said I hope to play there one day.

Police union tells officers to return their Miami Dolphins tickets for refunds
Earlier this year they announced a new policy that said players who knelt during the anthem could be fined by their teams. This did not happen at last night's preseason game against Tampa Bay.

That's a staggering fee for a 33-year-old, but this is Ronaldo we're talking about. Ronaldo tries to keep the ball up for his teammate but mis-controls the ball leaving him red-faced and his opponents in stitches.

He moved from Manchester United to Madrid in 2009, and became the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches.

The Agnelli family have run Juventus for almost 100 years and chairman Andrea Agnelli was instrumental in securing the funds required to pluck Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Juventus has won the last seven league titles but has fallen just short in Europe, also losing the Champions League final in 2015 to Barcelona. Juventus has lost five finals since its last European Cup success.
