Ronaldo is urging Real Madrid player to join Juventus

Napoli aren’t the only Serie A side targeting James Rodriguez, as German newspaper Bild claims Cristiano Ronaldo is urging him to join Juventus.

The Colombia international turns 28 next month and has just completed his two-season loan at Bayern Munich, who do not seem prepared to activate the €42m option to buy.

Real Madrid have no place for him either, so the trequartista is likely to be on the move again this summer.

Serie A seems a likely destination, with Napoli working to reunite him with his old Real Madrid and Bayern Coach Carlo Ancelotti.

However, Bild now suggest Juventus are also trying to coax James to Italy via several Facetime conversations with his former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

It remains to be seen who the new Coach of Juve will be and that could undoubtedly change their transfer plans.
