Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has admitted he 'didn't believe' initial speculation regarding Cristiano Ronaldo's eventual move to the club this summer.
The Turin side parted with £105m prior to the start of the season to sign the 33-year-old from Real Madrid, who has since scored 15 goals in 25 appearances for his new club in all competitions.
While Chiellini was sceptical regarding the Old Lady's move for Ronaldo, the 34-year-old is delighted the club signed the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, even suggesting he's learning from the Portuguese forward every day.
Speaking to BBC Sport, the Italian said: "
"I was curious to see some particular attitude far from the field.
"Before, the Champions League was a dream. Now it is a target because Cristiano is the best player in the world and we need him to make the last step.
"It's the personality of Cristiano. He has fantastic skills in the field but out of the field, his attitude - how he works, how he prepares for the match, how he lives every day of his life - can help us. The team has changed."
