Mattia Perin was not expecting to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo when he joined Juventus, but he is excited to do so.
Juve paid Genoa an initial €12 million (£10.6m/$14m) to sign the goalkeeper after Gianluigi Buffon confirmed his 17-year stay at Turin would end after the 2017-18 season.
On Tuesday the Bianconeri announced they had shelled out €100m (£88m/$117m) more than the fee for Perin to snare five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
"I was not expecting it, but from a club like this you can expect anything," said Perin at his official presentation on Wednesday.
"The news struck me because he is the best player in the world. Being able to train with him, a great professional, like everyone here, is a plus for all of us and for Italian football.
"If Cristiano had to leave, I thought the most probable destination would be Juventus, and that's how it went."
