Cristiano Ronaldo has informed Juventus that he wants them to seal a transfer for one of Manchester United’s forwards who’s eyeing an exit this summer.
Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku could be on the transfer list this summer after hinting that he wants a change of pastures starting from 2019/20. The Belgium international has been one of the better Man United players over the last few months, but the fans don’t think so, and given the hatred that he is undeservedly receiving, Lukaku wants to go.

The Belgium international has insisted that the Serie A is his dream destination and Antonio Conte is the best coach in the world. The former Chelsea boss, now with Inter Milan, does not count Mauro Icardi in his plans for next season and so, he is considering a switch for the Manchester United superstar if they can find a way to acquire him.
Inter Milan and Napoli are both in the hunt for Lukaku and the Nerazzurri reportedly have the upper hand, though the Red Devils are too rigid. Manchester United have already turned down offers for Lukaku in two options. One was a direct swap involving Icardi and Perisic, while the other was a two-year loan with an option for Inter to purchase the Belgian.
Fox Sports has reported now that Cristiano Ronaldo is keen on seeing Romelu Lukaku play for Juventus. The Old Lady of Turin is undergoing an overhaul, and with Mario Mandzukic growing old, it seems that a striker may also be recruited this summer. Juventus are in a perfectly fine position to spend 75 million euros, as Lukaku is valued at that much.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is currently in Perth, Australia, where it will contest two pre-season friendlies against Perth Glory and Leeds United, once each, before heading back to Europe. Romelu Lukaku is part of the squad that has travelled, as is another exit-seeker Paul Pogba. Whether the duo will be in the roster at the start of the official season still remains to be seen.
