Real Madrid and Juventus close to agreeing Cristiano Ronaldo deal

Tuesday, 10 Jul, 2018

Hazard has always been linked with a move to Real Madrid, and that speculation has resurfaced this summer after the Blues failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Can, 24, says he also wants to win the Champions League, having missed out to Ronaldo's Real Madrid in May, but he says Juve's priority is to win an eighth straight Serie A title.

The player's agent Jorge Mendes, however, has suggested that Ronaldo may look for a "new challenge" .

Perez is desperate to sign Neymar too but Hazard appears the more likely signature at this stage, with Diario Gol reporting that No. 7 spot has been reserved for the Chelsea man.

Cristiano Ronaldo's future may be unclear, but the superstar forward is enjoying a well-deserved holiday. "If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the directors, the medical staff, all the staff without exception, as well as all the Madrid fans around the world". Furthermore, he was in great form for Portugal in the World Cup, scoring 4 goals in 4 games as Portugal eventually were eliminated in the Round of 16 at the hands of Uruguay.

The 19-year-old's permanent €183 million (A$288 million) move from Monaco officially came into effect on July 1, rendering him an indispensable asset for new manager Thomas Tuchel.

They are the two sides in this tournament who boast rosters dominated by English Premier League stars, and the British top flight is regarded by many to be the best first tier league in the world. There's a sense that if the forward is to leave Real Madrid it may well be this summer.
