Did Messi obsession cause Ronaldo to leave Spain?

It has been a busy week for Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Some workers a Fiat Chrysler plant in Italy have registered their displeasure with the amount of money spent to sign the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

Ronaldo has only just left the World Cup following on from his round-of-16 defeat at the hands of Uruguay.

Despite being operated as entirely separate businesses, Juventus and Fiat Chrysler are both owned by the Agnelli family and are run through their Exor holding company.

Workers at the auto company's Melfi plant in southern Italy will walk off the job at 10 p.m. Sunday and remain on strike until 6 p.m. Tuesday, BBC News reported.


Fiat is pumping €112mn to make this deal happen.

Manchester United face a battle to sign Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as Real Madrid prepare to launch a bid to sign the £132m-rated Lazio midfielder, according to reports via TeamTalk.

A statement released by the union said: "It is unacceptable that while the [owners] ask workers of FCA. for huge economic sacrifices for years, the same decide to spend hundreds of millions of euros for the purchase of a player". He has led the Champions League, the ultimate level of competition in Europe, in goals scored in a season for six straight years and has won the Ballon d'Or award for individual accomplishment five times.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has been approached for comment. Ronaldo has joined Juventus, and this leaves Messi with an opportunity to become the player with most representations in the UEFA team of the year for a single club. The result is that Fiat Chrysler workers may see the soccer club's well-being as antithetical to their own.
