Juventus’ most expensive player Cristiano Ronaldo has shown that, age for him is just a mere number, and is as fit as a 20-year old footballer. Ronaldo is 33-years old.

The superstar forward completed his transfer to Italian champions Juventus after calling time on a nine year Real Madrid career.

Previously, Ronaldo had claimed that biologically he was 23-years-old, which meant he could continue at the highest level with a similar intensity for more than a few years. “I’ve still got a long time left, I can keep playing until I’m 41. I’m feeling good, happy, I can’t complain,” the 33-year old had said.

According reports in the Spanish media, Ronaldo’s medical in Italy was prove that he could reduce his estimated biological age by another three years.

Ronaldo reportedly had only seven percent body fat with the average professional carrying between ten and 11 percent. What’s more is that Ronaldo’s muscle mass stands at 50 per cent and that is higher than any other average professional player who generally has 46 percent.

The new Juventus number 7 was also recorded with a top speed of 21.1 mph at the World Cup, something he replicated during the medical as well. The Portuguese captain was the fastest player at the tournament. His fastest speed in 2017 was 20.66 mph, scarily meaning that Ronaldo could actually be getting better.

He also jumped an astonishing 7.55 feet in the air when he scored a bicycle kick against Juventus in the Champions League, and fans of the Italian champs will no doubt be hoping for similar shows in their famous black and white kit.

The former Manchester United man proved that he can still do it at the highest level with some incredible performances at the World Cup, even though Portugal crashed out at the Round of 16 stage against Uruguay.

After signing his deal at Juventus, Ronaldo said, “I’m going to try to show that I am a top player, as usual. I’m going to work hard in training. I don’t think I have to show what I am more than that – you know my stats. But I am very ambitious and I like challenges. I don’t like to stay in my comfort zone, I like to seize new challenges. After the experiences in Manchester and in Madrid, I’d like to mark the history of Juventus. I like challenges, again, and I hope everything will go very well.”
