Cristiano Ronaldo was on the brink of signing for Italian giants Juventus back in 2003, claims Italian agent Alessandro Moggi.
Ronaldo however, ended up signing for Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United and hit the ground running but things could have turned out very differently for the Portuguese international.
Moggi told Italian sports paper Tuttosport that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes contacted him, asking for assistance in helping find a new club for the then highly talented Sporting Lisbon youngster.
