Cristiano Ronaldo’s proposed move to Juventus is edging closer after reportedly holding talks with boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Juve remain confident of landing the Real Madrid superstar in a stunning £88m deal.
Ronaldo’s future has been the source of much speculation since the Champions League final amid reports he is unhappy at the Bernabeu.
There had been suggestions Ronaldo would be unveiled as a Juventus player over the weekend but that did not happen.
But Cadena COPE reports the deal is still quite far down the line with Allegri personally speaking to Ronaldo in an attempt to lure him to Turin.
It is claimed Ronaldo has already had a telephone conversation with Allegri about where he would fit into his plans.
Ronaldo is yet to make his decision on his future public, which Real president Florentino Perez has demanded before he opens the door to the switch.
But Juve fans are already getting ahead of themselves with ‘Ronaldo 7’ shirts printed in the past week.
Ronaldo meanwhile has put speculation to one side as he enjoyed some family time on Sunday.
The Portugal star was pictured on board a boat with his son and partner Georgina Rodriguez as the trio made the most of the sunshine.
