Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah has expressed his readiness to face off against Portugal great Cristiano Ronaldo in the Italian Serie A.

The five-time Ballon D'or winner stunned the footballing world by leaving Real Madrid to join Juventus in a €112 million deal, putting him in the bracket of the four most expensive players of all time.

His arrival to Italy has been greeted with several magnificent reactions as many believe it will boost the image of the Italian top flight league.

With their homes for the upcoming season settled, the Ghana international, who has already faced the former Manchester United man before, is looking forward to another possible match-up.

“I did not expect him to go to Juventus, but for [the good of] Serie A, it is positive that such a champion comes to Italy," Asamoah told Corriere dello Sport.

“I have already faced him when we played Real Madrid in the Champions League and I am getting ready to give my best against him and the rest of the players in the Serie A.”

Asamoah also shed light on his introduction to his new side and their Serie A target this term.

“I would say [my introduction was] great. Now I have been here for a few days and I feel like I have been with Inter for a year," the 29-year-old said.

"I am already part of the team and everyone immediately made me feel like I am part of the family.

“Everybody starts the championship [Serie A] with the same amount of points.

"The team is convinced to do our job well and that we have all the means to steal their satisfaction.”

Asamoah has made four pre-season appearances for Inter so far.
