Brazilian forward and Juventus attacker Douglas Costa has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo joined the Serie A club to enhance his status.

Last season, Ronaldo was his usual dominant self in Europe as he smashed 15 goals to top the Champions League scoring charts and fired Real Madrid to continental glory for the third straight year.

Ronaldo's arrival had sparked rumours that the match would be moved to the Allianz Stadium such was the enthusiasm from fans after his signing, but the club chose to stick with the traditional bucolic setting.

Relations between Ronaldo and Florentino Perez had been cold for many months leading up to his exit, but there now seems to be warmth on either side with the European champions determined to honour one of their all-time greats.

That could mean Ronaldo gets even more up close and personal with Juve fans. I've played with Neymar, so it's not totally new for me to play with someone at [Ronaldo's] level.

Los Blancos are now in a state of complete turbulence following Zinedine Zidane's exit and with new boss, Julen Lopetegui also losing Mateo Kovacic to Chelsea.

According to Spanish publications AS, Marcelo didn't report to Real Madrid's training in time last week, although he showed one day after his national teammate Casemiro showed up at the camp.

It was the Turin-based Tuttosport, a newspaper that's always well informed about what's going on at Juventus, who this morning delivered the sensational front-page revelation: "Marcelo calls Juve".

There has been a lot of turnover at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer already, with Ronaldo, Mateo Kovacic and Champions League winning manager Zinedine Zidane leaving.

This comes just three days after the Turin based club completed the signing of current world best footballer Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

What is now left to be seen is that whether Marcelo will be playing in front of Thibaut Courtois for the upcoming season or not.
