Cristiano Ronaldo arrived at Juventus' medical center in Turin on Monday ahead of the official announcement of his deal. The Portuguese star was signed by the Italian Serie A giants last week for a reported fee of $117 million.
The 33-year-old former Real Madrid and Manchester United goalscorer arrived in Turin dressed in a fitted suit. Previously dubbed one of the "most stylish men alive" by GQ magazine, the footballer has his own CR7 brand of menswear.
Juventus is already reaping commercial rewards from Ronaldo's signing, with a reported estimate of 520,000 replica jerseys flying off the shelves and online.

However, local business owners in Turin have jumped on the Ronaldo bandwagon. Mister Leonardo, from Miretti's ice-cream shop in downtown Turin, created a CR7 ice cream flavor made with Ginja Lisboa, a typical Portuguese sour cherry liqueur, and chocolate flakes.
A crowd of Juventus supporters waited for their star signing Ronaldo to show up for his medical on Monday morning in Turin. Juventus is on a record run of seven Serie A titles in a row, but has not won the Champions League since 1996.
Headlines in the Italian papers on July 11, 2018 -- the day after Ronaldo's signing -- highlighted his reported $117 million transfer fee and $35 million annual salary.
Ronaldo celebrated his fourth Champions League victory in five years with Real Madrid last May after defeating Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine. Ronaldo also won a Champions League title with Manchester United in 2008.
