Cristiano Ronaldo has his sights set on Champions League glory with Juventus. The Portugal international swapped Real Madrid for Turin last summer and helped Juve claim the Scudetto.

However, they fell at the quarter-final stage of the Champions League as they were dumped out by surprise package Ajax. Ronaldo is a five-time Champions League winner, having won one title with Manchester United and four with Los Blancos, and he hopes he can claim another European crown with Juventus.

Juve have lost five Champions League finals since they last claimed the trophy in 1996, most recently to Real in 2017, with Ronaldo scoring a double for the Spanish giants.

The Serie A champions brought in Maurizio Sarri as their new coach this summer, with the former Napoli coach leading Chelsea to the Europa League crown last year, and Ronaldo feels they are close to ending their wait for another European title.

The 34-year-old revealed he opted to leave the Bernabeu in order to take on a new challenge and his goal is to become a European champion with a third club.

“After winning what I won at Madrid, I needed a change and new motivation,” Ronaldo told Marca. “I still have the strength to keep winning. “Juventus will win the Champions League. I don’t know if it’ll be this year or the next, but it’s coming.”

Juventus are 9.00 to win the Champions League this season, Real can be backed at 8.00 and Napoli are rated at 34.00.
