Cristiano Ronaldo-to-Juventus rumours played up by European papers

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked to a possible move to Juventus.

When the transfer rumours escalated again in January, sources close to United said at that time they doubted any claims that Ronaldo really wants to leave Real Madrid - and that he was merely trying to force a better deal out of his current club.

He said: "I am going to enjoy this moment and in the next few days I will give an answer to the fans, who have always been at my side".

But former Juventus managing director Luciano Moggi believes the Serie A champions should not look to sign Ronaldo and focus on other areas of their squad.

The 33-year-old forward has earned legendary status at the Bernabeu, but could opt to move elsewhere after lifting the Champions League three years in a row.

"It makes me laugh", he told Sportitalia (via Goal).

Juve's main target this summer has been Lazio and Serbia midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic after signing Emre Can from Liverpool and Douglas Costa on a permanent deal from Bayern Munich.

Spanish TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones reported that Real Madrid is set to accept a $116 million offer for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor.

After helping Real Madrid win their historic third consecutive UEFA Champions League title, Cristiano Ronaldo sent the world into a dizzying frenzy when he hinted at a potential exit.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Portugal were knocked out of the World Cup by Uruguay following a 2-1 loss to the South Americans.
