Felipe Melo believes his experience with Brazil will help him settle quickly at Juventus.

The former Fiorentina midfielder said: "I am very happy with the transfer, I have the chance to make history with a great club and I feel honored they have been made such a big investment for me, I have worked hard to reach these levels.

"Obviously, the chance to play with the Selecao, the confidence shown by Dunga and the positive benefits wearing the Brazil shirt helped me a lot. This is not to say that I have secured my place for the World Cup, I must continue working and trying to improve.

"Playing for the national team entails considerable pressure, I think I have handled it well and certainly I will do the same for a high-ranking club like Juventus."
