He scored a brilliant overhead kick at the Juventus Stadium in April as Real Madrid won 3-0 on their way to knocking the Italian champions out of the Champions League.

Real Madrid and Juventus are close to agreeing a deal for Cristiano Ronaldo - but there's a stumbling block in the way of any announcement, according to reports.

"No, if anything bothers me it's the goals he scored against me previous year", Buffon responded when asked if he was annoyed that he won't be at Juventus next term.

Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, has presented the offer to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez who must now decide whether to accept or reject it, per El Chiringuito (h/t Football Italia).

'Zidane is someone special it's true, but I think Real is everyone's dream, ' Hazard told beIN Sports.

"It would be a fantastic advertisement for Italian football".

New Juventus signing Emre Can was asked about the possibility of playing with the five time World Player of the Year during his presentation to the Turin club on Monday. If you go to Juve, you'll be at the next World Cup not as a mascot, but as a protagonist.

Modric, however, hopes - and thinks - that the 33-year-old will end up staying with the Spanish giants.

Given his well-known desire to lift the trophy, it has been said that Gianluigi would be ruing his decision to leave Juve for Paris Saint-Germain, as with the Portuguese in the team their chances are far greater.

"In Juventus there are intelligent players, and that is one of the reasons why they win often".

Juventus fans have seen first-hand just how effective Ronaldo still is.
