Cristiano Ronaldo will keep playing for Juventus, but he wants some changes to be done if the bianconeri want to achieve success in the UEFA Champions League, which has become an obsession for both the club and the footballer.
The Portuguese ace did not hesitate to commit his future to the Italian champions following their Scudetto win on Saturday, but now, he is ready to lead the black-and-white side to European glory, with a little help of some "friends".
According to a report published by Corriere dello Sport, CR7 has handed Juventus' hierarchy a transfer wishlist that includes six names. Those names are intended to boost crucial spots in the lineup to try and compete with all the European heavyweights.
The first name on that list is that of wonderkid Joao Felix, who has enjoyed his breakthrough season with Benfica this year. His signing will not be easy, as several European teams have already shown interest in signing the player.
The Portuguese ace added two Serie A stars to the mix, as Federico Chiesa and Kostas Manolas were reportedly included in CR7's wishlist. Both players are still under contract with Fiorentina and Roma, respectively, but their not-so-expensive buyout clauses make them feasible targets for the bianconeri.
The next transfer target in Cristiano's list is none other than Lyon's Tanguy Ndombelé, who made quite an impression when playing for the French side in the UEFA Champions League. The defensive midfielder has also been linked with Real Madrid, where he would replace Casemiro in the event of a transfer.
Speaking of his former team, Cristiano Ronaldo and Max Allegri -who reportedly discussed all of these names with CR7- are keen on luring away two Real Madrid players away from the Bernabeu: Isco and Raphael Varane. The Spaniard has had a dismal season under Santiago Solari, but seems to have earned some trust back with Zidane at the helm. Meanwhile, Raphael Varane has reportedly asked the club to let him leave, but Zizou's influence over him could see the 2018 WC winner staying at the Bernabeu.
The last two names on CR7's list have a double intention. First off, he'd like to lure these players away from the Bernabeu due to their talent. The second reason has to do with stealing two talented footballers away from one potential UCL rival.
Only time will tell if Juventus has enough money to satisfy the Portuguese star's demands, but you can't deny that CR7 is really trying to make things better both for him and the bianconeri.
