Blaise Matuidi wants Real Madrid star to join Juventus


But the player is currently focusing on the World Cup

Cristiano Ronaldo was a slow starter last term and was one of the main reasons why Real Madrid struggled in the first half of the season. Then he picked up the pace, scoring 41 goals and assisting 8 in 40 games during the 2017/2018 campaign.

The Portugal International helped the club to win their 3rd consecutive Champions League under manager Zinedine Zidane after beating Liverpool 3-1 back in May. But after winning the title, he cast doubts over his future by hinting that he could leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

The 33 year old superstar spoke about the club in the past tense after that game when he said: “We will talk in the future. It’s been really beautiful to play for Real Madrid. I’ll give a response in the coming days.”

There have strong rumours circulating this week that Juventus are keen to sign the Portuguese and are preparing a lucrative €120 million bid for him, with a salary package of €30 million a year.

The Italian side’s midfielder Blaise Matuidi has claimed that he would relish working with the former Manchester United star as he is one of the best players in the world but the Frenchman is currently focusing on the World Cup campaign.

“I’m not going to lie it would be just great,” he said as quoted by Goal. “It would be great to have one of the best players in the world with Juventus in the same club that I am.

“It would be great for the club and for the Juventus players.

“However, today I’m a player of the French national team and we have bigger fish to fry, no?”

The 31 year old is currently on duty with France National Team in Russia and will face Uruguay in the quarter-finals after beating Argentina 4-3 in the Round of 16.
