Last Updated: 10/12/18 18:30 h

Cristiano Ronaldo says he hopes Lionel Messi "to accept the challenge like me" and leaves Spain to play in Serie A.

The 33-year-old joined Juventus in the summer for a £ 105m fee. After nine years in Real Madrid, he won two La Liga titles and four Champions League leagues.

During his time in Bernabeu, he and Messi are constantly heading to the individual and individual prize teams, with their 10-year reign of Balon d'Or being crashed this year by Luca Modrick.

Messi spent his entire career in Barcelona, ​​but Ronaldo now called on the Argentine to leave the new camp and join him in Italy, suggesting that the 31-year-old may "need" him.

"I would like him to come to Italy one day, I hope he will accept the challenge like me, but if he is happy, then I respect that," Ronaldo told the Italian press.

Asked if he missed Messi, Ronaldo said: "No, maybe he is the one I miss, I played in England, Spain, Italy, Portugal and his national team while he is still in Spain.

"Maybe he needs me more For me life is a challenge I like and love to make people happy He is a fantastic player and a good guy but I miss nothing here This is my new life and I am happy.

"I left my zone in comfort and I took up this challenge here in Turin, everything was over, I proved that I am still an amazing player."

Ronaldo says he is absolutely convinced he has made the right decision to leave Real Madrid for Torino in the summer but admits that different clubs are interested in signing it.

"I had different options, but I will not say who, but I've had them." "Juventus is a solid club that has a long history," he said. "I knew the atmosphere of the stadium, I had played several times in Italy, I liked the city, the people and the club, I knew it could work.

"I can not be 100% sure of joining the best club in the world." After nine years in Real Madrid it was difficult to compare, but now I'm 100% sure that this is the right option.
