Cristiano Ronaldo Invites James Rodriguez to Play for Juventus (juventus)

MUNICH, NETRALNEWS.COMJames Rodriguez may soon reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus. Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has revealed that the Real Madrid midfielder was specifically asked by Ronaldo to move to Juventus next season.

"We [me and Rodriguez] talked two weeks ago, while celebrating Bayern's Bundesliga champions. I thought of him at Juventus," Matthaus said to AS.

"He is very close to Cristiano Ronaldo and he [James] told me that he had made contact with him. He [Ronaldo] told him he wanted him at Juventus."

"I understand why because James can serve Ronaldo so he can score goals and both will shine," he continued

James in the last two seasons on loan at Madrid to Bayern Munich. This summer, the Colombian midfielder will return to the Santiago Bernabeu, because he still has a contract until 2021.

But his position was clearly not safe because Madrid was again trained by Zinedine Zidane. Yes, it was the French coach who kicked him out of the Santiago Bernabeu to Bayern in 2017.

Therefore, if he does not want to rust on the bench, James clearly has to find a new club. Anchoring to Juventus is one of the best choices for James. There, James had the chance to get a lot of trophies with Ronaldo.
