On special request from Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus are likely to go after a player who is also wanted by Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

It was at Real Madrid that Cristiano Ronaldo reached the peak of his powers and established himself as arguably the best in the world.

The Portuguese made extensive individual and collective accomplishments during his nine years at Santiago Bernabeu. As talented as he is, his success was made possible by playing alongside some of the world’s finest talents.

With the intention of helping the Italian side to European glory, something he did with the Spanish giants on four occasions, the 35-year old wants the club to sign one of his former teammates.

Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel Di Maria is the player who is wanted by him at the Allianz Stadium, according to Todofichajes.

Ronaldo arrived at Juve with the aim of leading them to Champions League triumph but has been unsuccessful in doing so in his two previous seasons at the club.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner feels more quality is needed in the squad and he believes Di Maria’s experience could prove a much-needed asset in accomplishing his side’s European dream.

The Argentine winger is entering the final year of his current deal at Parc des Princes, and CR7 wants Juve to bring him in next summer.

Di Maria was a key figure for Paris Saint-Germain in their run up to the finals of the Champions League last season, scoring three goals and setting up seven more in nine games.

The report also claims that Ronaldo and Di Maria have maintained a friendly relationship with each other ever since going separate ways after their time together at Real Madrid.
