"Juventus have made an incredible signing in Cristiano Ronaldo", he told Premium Sport, "but Inter have done what they had to do in the market".

The auto manufacturer Fiat, to which the brand Ferrari exclusively belongs, is reportedly 29.1 percent owned by the Agnelli family, who also hold about 63.77 percent of Juventus.

Fans of Italian giants Juventus are delighted their team has netted Cristiano Ronaldo as their star summer recruit - but a union has called a strike saying the 100 million-euro signing is too much.

The union have claimed that the firm need to guarantee the future of thousands of people "rather than enriching only one", also claiming that Fiat's workers were making "huge economic sacrifices" while millions were being spent on one player.

The USB union confirmed Thursday it has called a three-day strike from Sunday at the Fiat plant in the southern town of Melfi in protest.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid after nine successful seasons, where he won the UEFA Champions League four times.

The Agnelli family, which has owned Turin-based Juventus for more than 90 years, controls Ferrari and Fiat Chrysler through its holding company, Exor, which owns 64 per cent of Juventus.

"We're all employees of the same owner, but in such a period of enormous social difficulty, this difference in treatment can not and must not be accepted", the union said. The union added: "The owners should invest in auto models that guarantee the future of thousands of people rather than enriching only one", the union said.
