Cristiano Ronaldo is now on the verge of being named as Juventus captain for the very first time in their coming Italian League encounter against Cagliari in Turin.
Giorgio Chiellini who is the captain of the Old Lady and his deputy Leonardo Bonucci have both being ruled out of the encounter due to injuries.
According to the report on UK Sun, these two superstars are currently having muscle problems and there is no definite date of when they will resume.
And as it is now, the captain armband will go to the player who has spent most time with the Old Lady in all competitions.
Argentine star Paulo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado have previously been selected but Juventus gaffer Pirlo may leave the South American duo out.
Also, experienced goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is not likely to start the game with Wojciech Szczesny since current number one and former Arsenal star Wojciech Szczesny is fit.
