Juventus made shockwaves over the world Tuesday when it completed the signing of Ronaldo from Real Madrid for a Serie A record of 112 million euros ($130 million), with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner signing a four-year deal with the Italian champions.And Ronaldo mania is in full swing in Turin, with enterprising businesspeople not missing the opportunity to celebrate the occasion and cash in on the arrival of the Portugal forward.Leonardo La Porta, who has owned Gelateria Miretti in the heart of Turin for 30 years, has created a flavor called CR7 – Ronaldo's famous brand name.The 50-year-old La Porta is not a Juventus supporter, nor even a football fan, but has often created flavors to mark important events in the city.However, he has only created one flavor in honor of a person before – when the pope came to Turin in 2015 .Shirts bearing Ronaldo's name have been flying off the shelves and not just in Turin.Ronaldo should also find it easy to settle into life in Turin.While most fans are welcoming the arrival of Ronaldo, with even supporters of opposing teams recognizing the prestige it brings to the Italian game, there is a minority that is unhappy at the cost of the deal.
