Cristiano Ronaldo's big-money move to Juventus had created all the headlines after the Portuguese superstar decided to leave the Spanish capital after spending nine successful years at Real Madrid, where he won numerous titles and ended as the club's all-time leading goal scorer.

The talismanic forward left the 13-time European champions in search of a new challenge. However, if the first 10 matches that Juventus have played are anything to go by, Cristiano Ronaldo has rather had a decent start to his campaign, going by his sky-high standards.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has scored four goals in eight appearances for the Serie A giants, and had to miss out on the Champions League clash against Young Boys after being sent off against Valencia.

While on one end, Ronaldo is finding the going tough in terms of goals, his son seems to show the way forward. Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, recently linked up with the Juventus U-9 team, and is tipped by many, including Cristiano, of making it big.

Ever since the youngster has made his debut, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has been scoring goals for fun with the Italian giants. Most recently, Cristiano Ronaldo had shared a video of his son where the talented youngster scored a brilliant solo goal after toying with a couple of players.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo might be struggling to continue his goal-scoring exploits in Juventus colors, but his exploits off the field continue on. The former Real Madrid superstar was named in the 30-man Ballon d'Or shortlist for his record-breaking campaign with Los Blancos in the UEFA Champions League 2017/18, wherein he scored 15 goals in 13 appearances.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the joint-record holders of the Ballon d'Or, winning the accolade five times. However, the duo who have dominated every individual award for the past 10 years, could see their streak come under a threat by Luka Modric, who is also among the front-runners for this year's prize.
