Cristiano Ronaldo would struggle to accumulate 40 goals with his new Serie A team, Juventus according to former Madrid team-mate Raul Albiol.
The Napoli defender told AS: “It’s true that in Italy, football is more tactical and defensive, as well as being very physical, so you have to know how to play.
“Cristiano’s a great player with tremendous quality, but in Italy it’ll be harder for him to score 40 goals.
“Also, I hope he doesn’t because it would be good for Juventus but bad for Napoli.”
Ronaldo had a slow start to his last season at Madrid but finished with 44 goals, including 15 in the champions league.
“He also started slowly with Madrid last season,” said Albiol.
“He didn’t score goals at the start of the campaign, yet he finished up again with some mindboggling numbers.
“If Cristiano has spent his entire career scoring bags of goals every season, it’s not by chance.”
