Matuidi: Ronaldo To Juventus Would Be "Just Great"

Matuidi: Ronaldo To Juventus Would Be

Blaise Matuidi would relish the chance to work with "one of the best players in the world" if Cristiano Ronaldo were to join Juventus, but is focusing on France's World Cup bid.

ESPN Deportes' Paola Nunez reported that the "Jugones" story means that Real Madrid are at least considering the possibility of negotiations with Juventus.

Speculation has mounted this week that Serie A champions Juve are preparing a lucrative €120 million bid (£105m/$139m) for Ronaldo, with a salary package of €30m a year.

Ronaldo said in December that he wanted a raise after helping Real win the Club World Cup.

It's hot out there! Will high temps last into the week?
The heat index in parts of the Midwest on Saturday could reach over 110 degrees, including in the Chicago metropolitan area. Take care of your dog's paws: Asphalt and sidewalks are hotter than grass, and dogs' paw pads are highly sensitive to heat.

Social media user Baptiste Ripart, who identifies himself as a journalist and editor, said in a Twitter posting that the Spanish Champions League holders had agreed a world-record 272 million euro (239.75 million pounds) fee for the French 19-year-old.

Despite the glut of silverware, however, the five-time world player of the year has had frequent fallouts with Real and has declared on several occasions over the years that he wants to leave the club. "We have not spoken recently, but I know him well enough to tell you that he is a very generous man, who does not give up on anything, and I know that he will do everything, right up until the last moment to be on the pitch", Matuidi added.

Juventus, who have dominated Italian football over the last few years, believe they are in pole position to sign him and feel they are able to offer attractive terms to both the player and his agent, Jorge Mendes.

Ronaldo hinted after the Champions League triumph against Liverpool in May that his future could lie away from the Bernabeu but this news has still come out of the blue slightly. He was shackled, however, and failed to score as Uruguay won 2-1.
