Each day we get to see how Juventus and Manchester United appear together in the same news due to the back and forth both teams have regarding Paul Pogba’s future. Moreover, now the Old Lady might be looking to sign another Red Devil, with Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly ‘urging’ his club to make a move as soon as possible.
Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo has backed the club to pursue Manchester United striker and Inter target Romelu Lukaku this summer transfer window.
Juve have been trying to win the Champions League for quite a while now, and Cristiano’s arrival was thought to be the solution for them, but the Italian giants got knocked out of the competition last season against Ajax in quarter-finals.
Now, according to The Sun, Ronaldo believes that Lukaku could be the answer to their problems and he would support a move for the wantaway Manchester United forward. Good thing for them is that Lukaku has been offered to both Napoli and Juve for £75 million, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that the striker is not part of his plans at Old Trafford next campaign.
Given that Ronaldo has adopted a wider role with the Serie A champions, the center-forward position is available and the Belgian appears to be his favorite player to cover it.
Juventus archrivals, Internazionale have shown their interest in signing Romelu, but the two bids they placed for the Belgian were rejected by Man. Utd. The English side is hoping to get the same £75 million they disbursed to buy Lukaku back in 2017 from Everton, which has made this a race between Juve and Napoli, mostly.
No one knows how this whole situation is going to end, as both Napoli and Juventus have also shown their interest in bringing Inter’s Mauro Icardi this summer.
