Juve See Ronaldo Benefits

Juventus's signing of Cristiano Ronaldo has increased their share price with good reason, as the Italian giants are reported to have sold well in excess of half a million shirts with his name and number on the back in the first 24 hours following the announcement. At 105 euros a pop, that will certainly help cover his wages, as the vast majority were sold through their official stores. Added to that, their social media platforms have seen a massive growth already. Their official Instagram has gained 1.4m followers, Twitter 1.1m and Facebook in excess of 500,000.
