Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told the reigning Serie A champions to sign a €65 million-rated former Real Madrid teammate of his in January.
Los Blancos midfielder Isco has been linked with a move away from the club after seeing his role reduced under Zinedine Zidane, and Ronaldo has now reportedly told Juventus to snap up the Spanish star.
According to Fox Sports, who cited Don Balon, Ronaldo has alerted the Bianconeri to the situation, and wants the Italian giants to sign the €65 million (R1 billion) playmaker.

Manchester City are said to be favourites to sign Isco after manager Pep Guardiola reportedly identified him as a replacement for the outgoing David Silva, while Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have also been credited with an interest.
It has also been claimed that the 27-year-old favours a move to Turin rather than England or Germany, which would leave Juventus in pole position to complete a deal in January.
Isco joined Real from Malaga in 2013, and has scored 48 goals in 280 appearances for the club since.
