Ronaldo’s agent last weekend claimed that the Portuguese international sought out for the switch to the Seria A, and the information have been validated.
Ronaldo gave his nod for the move while the Old Lady were talks in with fellow Jorge Mendes client, Joao Cancelo according to the Bianconeri director Fabio Paratici.
Ronaldo joined the Old lady last summer, putting to an end his 9 years spell at the Spanish capital and his agent Mendes confirmed on Saturday that it was totally his idea.
Paratici has now backed the version of event, despite previous reports that Ronaldo was forced out of Madrid after failing to agree to a new deal at the end of the 2017/2018 campaign.
“When we met with Mendes to discuss Cancelo, that is where the whole thing began,” Paratici told Sky Sport Italia.
“Mendes said to me: ‘You won’t believe this, but Cristiano wants to come to Juve.’
“I replied that I believed it, but it seemed difficult to make everything come together and work.”
Ronaldo while at Turin has continued his goal scoring form with the forward netting 12 times in all competitions to help Juve move clear at the top of Serie A and progress in the Champions League.
But Paratici added that bringing in the Portugal star never seemed a likely option.
“The greatest players help kids to dream. My son wanted Cristiano Ronaldo’s jersey, so when I went to see a Portugal game, I bought it and he wore it all the time.
“Every year he’d ask me: ‘Daddy, why don’t we buy Cristiano Ronaldo?’ Because it’s impossible.
“Then when it happened, he said: ‘Daddy, you told me it was impossible!’ I had no answer.”
Juve extending their unbeaten status in the Italian top flight division to 17 games after defeating Roma 1-0 last weekend to remain at the summit of the Italian league.
They face Atalanta next on Boxing Day as they look to continue their dominance in Serie A and prepare for a tie with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last 16.
