Italian giants Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo according to various media reports in Italy.
It is believed that Juve could spend up to €100 million for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has previously spoken of his admiration for the Italian club.
Cristiano has a €1 Billion release clause but there is an agreement that he can leave for £88m if he goes to a club not considered a direct rival.
Ronaldo prompted questions about his future after their 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool in Kiev, promising an announcement “soon”.
The 33-year-old Portugal forward has scored 450 goals and assisted 131 times in 438 matches for Real Madrid.
He was applauded by Juventus fans last season after scoring a spectacular overhead kick in the Champions League quarter-finals at Juventus’ Stadium.
Real Madrid paid Manchester United £80m for Ronaldo in 2009.
