Cristiano Ronaldo has requested extra bodyguards because he fears for the safety of his family in Italy, according to reports. The Portuguese superstar has been swarmed by supporters in Turin since his high profile move to Juventus during the summer.
And Italian publication Corriere di Torino claim that the 33-year-old has asked for three permanent bodyguards as he settles to life in his new country.
Two will look after himself and the family with another continuing to monitor his house in the Gran Madre Park.
Attendances for Juventus matches have increased following the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s arrival.
Both their visits to Chievo Verona and Parma were completely sold out with fans desperate to see the superstar in action.
And while Ronaldo has security concerns, the former Manchester United man will also be worried with his form on the pitch.
He has yet to open his account with the Old Lady in his first three matches with the club.
Juventus are off to flyer with nine points from a possible nine but their big-money signing has yet to kick-start his season.
