New Juventus signing Cancelo welcomes Ronaldo arrival

New Juventus signing Joao Cancelo has welcomed Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival.

Cancelo has joined the Bianconeri in a €40m deal from Valencia - and was soon followed by former Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It's a pleasure for me and everyone to play with someone like Ronaldo, the best in the world," Cancelo said at his presentation Press conference.

“He'll definitely raise the quality of the team and I hope we can keep winning together.

“It's a pleasure to have him here, he's used to winning and has a winning mentality. Juventus have dominated the Italian league in recent years and I hope he can help us continue that success.

“The Champions League? Obviously Cristiano will bring us quality. There's no obligation to win the Champions League, the obligation is to compete for it.

“The Champions League is a competition between the best teams in Europe and Juventus is one of those. We'll have everything to compete for that trophy.

“It's an objective because he [Ronaldo] increases our quality, but I don't think it's an obligation because there will be other teams competing with us.

“It's definitely an important objective for us though."
