Portugal worldwide Ronaldo joined Serie A champions Juventus from Real Madrid in a £99.2m deal in the summer.

Ronaldo's relationship with Messi has sometimes appeared odd as the pair turned the annual Ballon d'Or into a personal head-to-head, sharing out every title since 2008 until the pair were pipped by Luka Modric last week.

And while explaining that he is not missing Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo stressed that he wants the Argentine to join him in Italy. "I hope he accepts the challenge like me, but if he's happy there then I respect that", Ronaldo told the Italian press.

Ronaldo's decision to leave Real Madrid for Turin in a €100 million (£90m/$114m) dealhas left Messi as the standalone five-time Ballon d'Or victor in La Liga.

Asked if he missed the 31-year-old Argentinian, who has spent his entire senior career at Barcelona, Ronaldo replied: "No, maybe it's him who misses me".

"I have fantastic friends and I have family, I play in one of the best clubs, do you think I'll go home and cry?".

"In Madrid they are humble, but here I feel they are more so".

"Marcelo is strong, we open the doors to good players and Marcelo is one of them". "This is my new life and I am happy". I also changed my life by leaving my comfort zone.

"I can say this is the best group I've ever played with".

"For me it is lovely and I can feel the difference". Also at Madrid they are humble, but here I feel that sense more. It's very different to Madrid, here it is more of a family.

"I work for that, but if I do not win, it's not the end of the world". After nine years at Real Madrid it was hard to compare.

"This is not a contest between me and Messi - I just do my job and I've been successful in each club I've played in and this is the most important thing".

Ronaldo has scored 11 goals for Juventus so far this season, while Messi has taken his tally in all competitions in 2018-19 to 17 in as many games.
