Allegri reveals what will happen to Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo

And while the move has shocked many, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star have insisted that he can still play at the very highest level of football.

The Portugal superstar, still recovering from his involvement in the 2018 World Cup, did not feature as Madrid defeated Juve 3-1 in the International Champions Cup in Maryland on Sunday.

Dani Ceballos was a leader in the midfield, giving the coach something else to shout about against Juventus in their International Champions Cup match. The Serie A champions now open up their title defense at Chievo on August 18.

According to reports from Don Balon, the likes of Luka Modric, Keylor Navas, Marcelo and Andre Gomes have been linked with a potential move to the Serie A. However, it looks like this time Ronaldo has recommended that Juventus sign Keylor Navas, with the Costa-Rican worldwide set for a move away from the Bernabeu.

However, Los Blancos hit back through Gareth Bale in the 39th minute with a superb finish into the top corner. To replace a player of that calibre, you would need to invest in two or three superb players to simultaneously strengthen the rest of the squad, but Real Madrid have neglected that plan of action.

Asensio scored just nine minutes later to make it 3-1 for Real Madrid on another unselfish pass, this time from Lucas Vazquez.

Juve took an early lead when Joao Cancelo broke down the left, and his low cross was diverted into his own net by an attempted sliding block from Carvajal.

It was the first pre-season defeat for Juventus, who were without many of their key attackers for their U.S. tour, including Douglas Costa, Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic.
