Portugese star Ronaldo, 33, has been given time off by the Italian club following the World Cup and so will not line-up against his former club.

New Madrid boss Julien Lopetegui has had to contend with the £99.2 million departure of club-record scorer Ronaldo to the reigning Italian champions.

The money received for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been reinvested, with Brazilian youngster Vinicius Junior being recruited for £40.1 million.

Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri has invested heavily in his playing staff, with Joao Cancelo and Douglas Costa each coming in for around £35.6 million.

Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has also signed on a free transfer, after running down his contract on Merseyside to make the switch to Italy.

Cristiano Ronaldo opens up about switching Real Madrid for Juventus saying he’s not sad about the move and that it was his ONLY offer
