Cristiano Ronaldo is going after another Real Madrid target, this time it’s a player who eliminated Juventus in the Champions League.
There aren’t many times in which Cristiano Ronaldo gets involved in Juventus’ transfers, but this time he felt the need to go after a Real Madrid target. The Portuguese star already got right in the middle of Matthijs De Ligt’s negotiations with FC Barcelona.
We all remember the UEFA Nations League semifinals in which he specifically told the Dutchman to sign for Juventus. It took only a few months for the player to make the decision. Well, it seems Ronaldo is at it again. Only this time, Real Madrid will be his victim.
There aren’t many players who impress the Portuguese star but when they do, he never forgets them. This was exactly the case with De Ligt when he eliminated Juventus in the Champions League’s quarterfinals of 2019. Cristiano has a new player he would like for his side, and Andrea Pirlo approves it.
The match that seduced Ronaldo.
It all happened during the return of the Champions League in the middle of a pandemic. The club that surprised everyone and was nowhere near the top candidates for bookies. Olympique Lyon has many great players in its roster but none of them surprised Ronaldo more than Houssem Aouar. The French midfielder has been on the radar of several major clubs in Europe but Real Madrid is the biggest one.
Zinedine Zidane’s predilection for his compatriots proves that Los Blancos would love having Aouar on board. However, Don Balon just reported that Cristiano started making inquiries about the player. He wants Andrea Pirlo to ask for his transfer in order to agree on a contract extension at the ‘Old Lady’.
The Portuguese star understands that Aouar is the type of player that can help him win the Champions League once again. It is well-known that the Italian giants don’t only need a striker, but a proper midfielder as well. Houssem Aouar is the one that Cristiano Ronaldo chose and the club should listen.
It appears Houssem Aouar is wanted by more than one club.
