Ronaldo: 'I want Juve trident'

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo “likes to play with both” Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain and would love a Champions League Final with Real Madrid.

The Portuguese has scored nine goals for the Old Lady across all fronts this season and was helped by the late introduction of Dybala to find the net against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Higuain also scored thanks to an assist from the No 10, and now Ronaldo claims he would like to play with the two Argentines.

“When I play with both Dybala and Higuain, we have a great understanding, I like to play with both,” Ronaldo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have a lot of fun on the pitch, but the coach makes the decisions and we must respect them.”

He assured he had overcome his “physical problems” and praised Juve’s performance in the 2-0 win at Leverkusen.

“I feel good, the physical problems I had have passed. I spent four weeks in pain, but now I'm fine.

“The team are doing well, we played very well in the second half, we are top in our group, things are improving also for me.

“Now, I have more confidence and I hope to continue like this.”

Juve topped their Champions League group with 16 points and could be drawn with the forward’s old club in the last 16.

“Real are an extraordinary team but, if you ask me, I would prefer to meet them at a later stage.

“If you told me I could meet them in the Final, I would take that right now.”
