Giggs: Messi obsession key to Ronaldo's Juventus move

Wales coach Ryan Giggs isn't surprised by Cristiano Ronaldo's move to Juventus.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Juve in a €112m deal.

“I'm surprised that he would leave Real Madrid and go to Italy," Giggs told ITV Sport.

“I think it's a big challenge for him but he's going to a huge club. Having that on your CV... Real Madrid, Man United and Juventus. It's some CV.

“He's obsessed with being better than Messi. He has that now that: 'I did it in England, I did it in Spain, I'm going to do it in Italy... and I did it with Portugal'.

“So maybe that will be his argument when people ask: 'Is Ronaldo better than Messi?'."
