ROME - Cristiano Ronaldo said that he&39;s "different" from other players of his age who move to China for mega-money deals, during his official unveiling as a Juventus player on Monday.

Cristiano Ronaldo said that he&39;s "different" from other players of his age who move to China or Qatar for mega-money deals, during his official unveiling as a Juventus player on Monday.

The five-time Ballon d&39;Or winner was his usual confident self at a press conference in Turin attended by media from all over the globe, following the announcement last week of his 100 million-euro ($117 million) move from European champions Real Madrid.

"I&39;m different from other players who think their careers are over when they&39;re my age," said the 33-year-old Portugal captain.

"I want to show that I&39;m not like the others, I&39;m different.

"Players of my age go to China or Qatar so coming to such an important club at this stage in my career makes me very happy."

CONFIRMED: Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid for Juventus

Juventus signed the superstar attacker, who signed a four-year deal worth a reported 30 million euros a season, in the hope that he will push them to a coveted Champions League title, the continent&39;s holy grail.

Preparing to make a run at their eighth Serie A title in as many years and winner of four straight domestic doubles, the Old Lady of Italian football has struggled to turn Italian dominance into European trophies.

Juve haven&39;t won the competition since 1996 but were beaten finalists in 2015 and 2017, bested respectively by Barcelona and Ronaldo&39;s former club.

Ronaldo meanwhile has scored more Champions League&39;s goals - 120 - than anyone else and won four out of the last five editions with Real Madrid.

"We&39;re going to fight for not just Champions League, but also Serie A and the others trophies," he said.

"I need to work hard because the Champions League is not easily won. I hope I can help."
