Juventus is almost a regular winner of Italian Serie A, however, Champions League is something they are desperate to win. They made their ways to two Champions League finals in three years where first they lost to FC Barcelona and later to the Madrid. At the point, taking Ronaldo into the squad might be the only remaining step to take the trophy their home after their last win in 1995/96 season.
Cristiano Ronaldo's record in the UEFA Champions League is exceptional-he played four finals in last five years and won all the times. Particularly his performances are phenomenal at the knockout stage.
Ronaldo had transferred to Real Madrid in 2009 leaving the Manchester United in which he had been playing for six years.
