Real Madrid speaks on replacing Ronaldo with Neymar

Fiat workers livid over Juventus' blockbuster deal with Ronaldo

Fiat staff to strike over Cristiano Ronaldo’s £88 million Juventus move

Auto behemoth Fiat are based in Juve´s home city Turin and both are co-owned by the Agnelli family. "The company should invest in auto models that guarantee the futures of thousands of people, rather than enriching only one".

Juventus will pay €100 million ($158 million) for the move and another €12 million in fees to sign the player to a four-year contract. However, there is only one man who knows if what Giggs asserted is true and what the reasons behind the move to Juventus were, and that is Cristiano Ronaldo.

The marketing leverage that Juventus will be able to create will be significant.

Ronaldo completed his €100million move to the Serie A champions earlier this week, bringing an end to his successful nine-season stay in Madrid. "That means more sponsors, more TV money and more prize money", he told BBC.

Giggs shared Manchester United's dressing room with Ronaldo between 2004 and 2009 before Ronaldo's departure to join Real Madrid. He has that now, that, 'I did it in England, I did it in Spain, I'm going to do it in Italy ...

The Agnelli family, who have owned Juventus for more than 90 years, controls Ferrari and Fiat Chrysler through its holding company, Exor, which owns 64 per cent of Juventus.

Union members working at the plant, where Fiat models such as the Punto and 500X are made, will walk out at 10pm local time on Sunday night, remaining on strike until 6pm on the following Tuesday.

However, the impact of the stoppage is likely to be limited.

At this stage, it isn't expected to have a major impact because Melfi is just one of seven sites used by FCA and USB only represents a small number of employees there.
