The star took to Instagram and posted a video where he can be seen fine tuning his skills and he looks healthy which would make fans hopeful about his participation.
Ronaldo has been in good form despite Juventus’ early exit from last season’s UCL. He recently became the second footballer in the history of the game to score 100 international goals.
Both Barcelona and Juventus would like to have a better season in the UCL this time around. It was the first time since 2004 that both Messi and Ronaldo did not feature in the semi-finals and the two superstars would like to make sure that does not happen this season.
The 35-year-old – who recently got engaged with girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez – would like to have a good season ahead.
