The Portuguese forward completed a move from Real Madrid to Juventus yesterday for a fee believed to be between ÂŁ88million and ÂŁ105m.
He leaves the Spanish capital after four Champions League wins in the last five years and having become the clubâ€™s all-time top goalscorer in a sensational nine-year spell at the Bernabeu.
Juve are hoping that the 33-year-old superstar can help lead them back to the pinnacle of European football themselves having gone without a triumph in the continentâ€™s premier competition since 1996.
Ronaldo is the Champions Leagueâ€™s top scorer with 120 goals and managed 15 in the competition last term – the seventh straight season he has managed double digits.
Yet ESPNâ€™s Burley – formerly of Chelsea – has suggested that the clock may already be ticking on Ronaldoâ€™s stellar performance levels.
Thatâ€™s in spite of Ronaldo having managed to adapt his game as he has aged in order to become a deadly finisher and still maintain his jaw-dropping goalscoring exploits.
â€śItâ€™s great for Italian football, itâ€™s great for Juventus,â€ť Burley said on Ronaldoâ€™s move.
â€śItâ€™s come at a big cost financially – I donâ€™t know if they can crunch the numbers and make it work, obviously they think they can.
â€śItâ€™s a win-win. They get a guy who might have a year or two left in him.Â
â€śThis is the way the gameâ€™s going. People are not looking to always buy players at 22-23 for a sell-on. Clearly thatâ€™s not the case.
â€śAnd Real Madrid get an unbelievable amount of money for somebody of his age, albeit someone with a goalscoring status that is absolutely crazy.Â
â€śI think everybodyâ€™s happy here. Heâ€™s gotÂ whatÂ he wants, Juventus have got a star player, one of the best and Real Madrid can now move in a slightly different direction and theyâ€™ve got ÂŁ100m or whatever it is.â€ť
