Juventus should consider signing Real Madrid star to help Ronaldo

The ex-Bianconeri playmaker says his old club are lacking a player in the same mould as the Spaniard, who could provide service for Cristiano Ronaldo

Andrea Pirlo has suggested Juventus should consider signing Real Madrid superstar Isco during the summer transfer window.

“I think we need an Isco,” Pirlo told Sky Italia. “We’re on another level, but you have to win the Champions League.”

“Allegri has in mind the team of the future for several months and the midfield is the department to be improved.

“Maybe he lacked quality in the middle having bought Ronaldo and didn’t know how to get him the ball.

“Midfielders are needed to get to the bottom of the Champions League.”

Isco has endured a difficult campaign at Santiago Bernabeu, falling out of favour under Julen Lopetegui and Santiago Solari before Zinedine Zidane’s return to the helm in March.

The Spain international was heavily linked with a transfer earlier in the season, but Zidane is reportedly hopeful he will remain in Madrid for at least one more year.
