Cristiano Ronaldo has arrived for his first training session as a Juventus player on Monday, July 30, 2018 after arriving in his new home of Turin on Sunday, July 29, 2018.
Ronaldo who is 33 years old arrived in his private jet with his family on Sunday evening and will be put through his paces for the first time on Monday, along with the other members of the Bianconeri squad who were involved in the knockout stages of the World Cup.
Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain, Juan Cuadrado, Douglas Costa and Rodrigo Bentancur were all expected to take part in the session led by Aldo Dolcetti, one of head coach Massimiliano Allegri’s assistants, with the remainder of the first-team squad currently in the United States.
Dolcetti, together with a fitness coach, has returned to Turin from the States to train the small group of players who will be remaining in Italy.
Higuain, along with his brother and agent, Nicolas, had reportedly been in Milan earlier for talks over a move to AC Milan.
The entire Juventus squad should train together in Turin on August 8, ahead of Ronaldo’s first outing in a black-and-white striped shirt four days later, in the Serie A club’s traditional season-opener at Villar Perosa- a friendly between the first team and reserves.
A week after, Ronaldo will make his Serie A debut at Chievo as Juventus begin their search for a record eighth straight Scudetto. His debut at the Allianz Stadium could come seven days later when Lazio pay Piedmont a visit.
