That changed this summer though with Ronaldo heading for Juventus.

"Cristiano was never on my table to say yes or no to Cristiano to come to us", Mourinho, who worked with Ronaldo at Madrid between 2010 and 2013, told ESPN after the 2-0 win over Burnley on Sunday.

"It's time. We have been knocked out in the quarterfinals in the last three seasons".

The former Manchester United man asked Juve to organise two security guards, one for his family and one to keep an eye on the villa at all times, plus a third bodyguard to accompany him everywhere he goes.

"It surprised me", he said about Ronaldo's decision to quit Real Madrid.

"The objective is clearly to win the Champions League, which they were close twice when they reached the final, so they are a top team in Europe that made one of the biggest spending - I think after Liverpool it must be them". The Italian club also saw a boost from Ronaldo's arrival in terms of shirt sales, reportedly selling more than half a million shirts - $60 million worth - bearing the players name in the 24 hours after his transfer was confirmed. "I'm not anxious about it", Messi said about when he retires and needs to be replaced.

"It surprised me [when he left]". Thiago understands and knows me.after a defeat we don't talk about it, he knows not to talk about it. "Last season's result in Rome hurt especially, but we have a spectacular squad and we can fight for it". He plays well over short distances, he doesn't lose the ball. "I think that players like Arturo (Vidal) are important to have in the squad, football is about tactics and the physical side".

"There are clubs now with a lot of money and players move for that reason", he said. When the moment comes then I will find something that I want to do, at the moment I am only thinking of what will happen until my contract finishes.

"The idea is to stay at Barcelona".
