Cristiano Ronaldo enjoys dinner on holiday with family and friends

"It's unacceptable that, while FCA and CNHI workers continue to make huge economic sacrifices, the company spends hundreds of millions of euros on the purchase of a player", union USB Lavoro Privato said.

Reports of Madrid's interest in the Brazilian superstar have increased since the club sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus on Tuesday, but Los Blancos refuted any and all claims in a club statement on Friday.

Privato said the money spent to bring Ronaldo to Italy's Serie A soccer league should have been spent on "car models that guarantee the futures of thousands of people, rather than enriching only one". And the Portuguese icon was again the star when they met in the quarter-finals of the tournament last season, scoring two and setting up another as Madrid progressed on away goals.

The marketing leverage that Juventus will be able to create will be significant.

The former United man can still prove his talent at one of the biggest clubs in the world and would cement his status as a legend if he could win Juventus the Champions League trophy they so desperately want. "That means more sponsors, more TV money and more prize money", he told BBC. I did it in England, I did it in Spain, I'm going to do it in Italy.

The president said the former foreign secretary would make a "great prime minister", adding "I think he's got what it takes". Britons are narrowly in favour of US President Donald Trump airing his views on Brexit, a Sky Data poll suggests.

Although Juventus and Fiat Chrysler are run as entirely separate businesses, they are both controlled by Exor, the investment holding of the Agnelli family.

The USB union confirmed Thursday it has called a three-day strike from Sunday at the Fiat plant in the southern town of Melfi in protest.

Ronaldo and Messi have battled to be deemed the best player in the world for the past 10 years, winning five Ballons d'Or apiece as Real Madrid and Barcelona fought for supremacy in LaLiga.

However, the impact of the stoppage is likely to be limited.
