Juve ‘optimistic’ over Ronaldo

Juventus are increasingly confident that Cristiano Ronaldo will arrive from Real Madrid, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

According to the Sky Sport Italia journalist, Juve ‘expect nothing but certainties on paper over the €100m’ they will pay Madrid from agent Jorge Mendes, after which point they will be ‘ready’ to close the transfer.

Furthermore, Di Marzio notes there have been ‘further signs’ since the morning that Los Blancos will release Ronaldo, while the 33-year-old would have recently called new Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Sky claims the Portuguese ‘probably asked’ Ancelotti – his Coach at the Santiago Bernabeu between 2013 and 2015 – about what it was like to play in Serie A.
