Ryan Giggs: Cristiano Ronaldo is obsessed with being better than Lionel Messi

Giggs, who played alongside Ronaldo at United, says that CR7's obsession with being compared to Lionel Messi propelled the move to a different country and a new league.

Ronaldo met Juventus club president Andrea Agnelli on Tuesday afternoon in a hotel in Greece, where he is on holiday with his girlfriend and family, before agreeing a four-year deal worth an estimated £500,000 a week. Juventus will pay 100 million euros ($117 million) for the move and another 12 million euros in additional fees to sign the player to a four-year contract, the club said in a statement.

And Giggs, who is a former team-mate of Ronaldo, believes he's only made the switch to enhance his claim of being better than his main rival in Spain.
