However, Ronaldo has managed two goals already in friendlies as he gets set for his full debut at Chievo on Saturday.

The Portuguese star netted a stunning overhead kick in Turin to knock Juventus out of the Champions League last campaign.

And after claiming a third successive UEFA Champions League title with Los Blancos, where supporters have showed disapproval in the past, he confessed the Juve fans’ response to his goal contributed to his move.

The Portugal captain told Juventus TV: "I felt surprised at the beginning. I am used to following Juve and I like the club, but since that moment I liked them even more.

"I won't say it was the key point in my decision, but every detail helps. Maybe.

"Of course, it helps when you see the people like you, the supporters and club like you, the feeling is completely different.

"I remember every day, that never happened to me before.

"In the Champions League against Juve, a quarter-final, you score a goal and see everyone in the stadium applauds you. It was an unbelievable feeling."

Meanwhile, previously had reported that Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has blasted former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo following the Portuguese's comments after his switch from the Los Blancos to Serie A champions Juventus.

According to a UK Mirror report, Ronaldo recently claimed that Juventus was more of a 'family' than he had in the Spanish capital, following his £100m switch from the Spanish topflight where he established himself as one of the best player in Galaticos record books.

At the last count the Portuguese claimed four Champions League titles as well as Real's all-time top goal scorer.
