Serie A By: Ambrose Udeme | 10/07/2018

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli was reportedly flown by helicopter to Cristiano Ronaldo's hotel in Greece to discuss a proposed move for the Real Madrid and Portugal forward, according to Sky Sports.

The report of his Greek trip was also reported by Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim he could meet with the player. They are also reporting that Ronaldo's representatives believe there is a chance that the transfer could be made official this Tuesday, even if that still seems complicated.

Ronaldo has spent nine seasons in Madrid, following his then-world record £80m transfer from Manchester United, and has gone on to become the club's record scorer with 451 goals. The Portugal captain has lifted two La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey crowns and four Champions League trophies during his spell at the Bernabeu.

Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague believes that Ronaldo told Los Blancos that he wants to join Juventus this summer, with the reigning European champions ready to let him leave.
