Matuidi: ‘Nice to have Ronaldo’

Juventus midfielder Blaise Matuidi says “it would be nice to have one of the best players in the world”, amid Cristiano Ronaldo rumours.

The Portuguese superstar is being linked with a move to Turin this summer, in a €100m deal.

It has been claimed that CR7 is being offered a €30m per season contract, four times what current top earner Gonzalo Higuain makes.
