Cristiano Ronaldo desires to reunite with a former teammate with whom he scaled phenomenal heights of success at his previous club.

With the talismanic presence of Cristiano Ronaldo in attack and Sergio Ramos in defense, Real Madrid were a force to reckon with in Europe.

The threat provided by the prolific marksman up front and the stability imparted by the commanding custodian at the back was crucial to Real Madrid accomplishing a historic ‘three-peat’ of the Champions League.

Ronaldo was brought in at Juventus to bring Champions League success which he has been unable to deliver so far. And he feels perhaps the addition of another much-experienced player in the competition can aid Juve’s ambition of European glory.

According to OK Diario, the Juve number-7 wants Ramos to team up with him once again in Italy. The report in the Spanish publication also claims that the Portuguese superstar has already made manager Andrea Pirlo aware of his desire.

Ramos has been at the Santiago Bernabeu since 2005, but his contract is set to expire at the end of this season. And despite having entered the final year of his deal, neither he nor the club have made much effort to negotiate terms of an extension.

This has given rise to the rumors that the 35-year old is open to putting an end to his 15-year-long tenure at the club.

Paris Saint-Germain are also reportedly interested in signing the five-time LaLiga, four-time Champions League, two-time European championship, and World Cup winner.
