Cristiano Ronaldo Has Named His Six Juventus Transfer Target
Cristiano Ronaldo has had talks with Juventus manager Max Allegri over who the Turin side should try and sign in the summer and he’s clearly very determined to see his team win next season’s Champions League.
Last summer Juventus decided it was time to end their 23 years without winning the Champions League, despite losing in several finals since, and spent more than £90 million on the man who knows better than most how to win it, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The five time Ballon d’Or winner has been a champion of Europe on five occasions with his club, and another with his country, including four of the previous five years before moving to Turin.
Unfortunately it didn’t work out for him or the Old Lady as Ajax knocked them out in the quarter final stages, after beating his previous side Real Madrid in the previous round.
On the weekend Juve did become champions of Italy for the eighth years in a row and Ronaldo met that triumph by denying rumours that he could leave after just one year.
And now it seems he wants to help the club plan for next summer as, according to Corriere dello Sport, he’s told Max Allegri six players to sign.
The paper reports that Ronaldo wants to see Joao Felix, Isco, Raphael Varane, Federico Chiesa, Tanguy Ndombele and Kostas Manolas join him at the Allianz Stadium.
Wonderkid Felix is currently impressing at Benfica and has been linked with all of Europe’s biggest clubs and as a fellow Portugal native he’s obviously been referred to as the ‘next Ronaldo’ and has said it’s his dream is to play alongside the former Manchester United winger.
The report claims that the forward sees a double reason for signing either Isco or Varane as it would both boost their team and diminish Real’s chances of a 14th European title.
Isco looked set to leave the Bernabeu before Zinedine Zidane returned as manager whilst Varane would reportedly like to leave the Spanish capital.
Chiesa looks likely to leave Fiorentina in the summer and could be a replacement for Paulo Dybala with the Argentinian linked with a move away from Turin.
With United needing a director of football right now it seems they could do a lot worse than their former player, then again they’d probably like him on the pitch too.
Who will Juve sign in the summer?
