"I want to win the Champions League with Juventus," he told broadcaster, DAZN.

"We'll focus on that, with my teammates, but without obsessing over it. We'll go step by step and then we'll see: if it's this year, next year or the year after that.

"The objective for the club is to win the League, Coppa Italia and, of course. do our best in the Champions League."

Ronaldo has five Champions League titles to his name, with the first coming for Manchester United in the 2007-08 season.

And will join Clarence Seedorf as one of only two players to have won Europe's elite trophy with three different clubs, if he can win a sixth title with Juventus.

It will also make him the European Cup's joint-first most successful player, along with Paco Gento, who won it six times with Madrid in the 1950's, although that was under a different format.

The former Sporting Lisbon star was also asked about his son and whether he thought Cristiano Ronaldo Jr could follow in his footsteps.

"He's very competitive. He's like me as a child. He doesn't like losing," he continued.

"He'll become like me, I'm 100 per cent sure of it. I'd like to teach him some things, but ultimately he will choose what to do and he'll always have my support.

"But of course, I'd like him to become a player because I think he has a passion for it too."
