Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo might have won the Serie A title in his debut season in Italy but their defeat to Ajax in the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League is still rankling him.
According to Don Balon, the 34-year-old wants to set that right next season and for that to happen has asked the club hierarchy to sign former Real Madrid team-mate Isco in the summer. The Spaniard has had an underwhelming season for the Los Blancos this season and was frozen out of the starting XI under former manager Santiago Solari in the earlier part of the campaign.

While he returned back to the fold on the re-appointment of Zinedine Zidane, it is being reported he will not be sure shot starter in the squad next season and may look to move on to greener pastures in the summer.
Though Juventus are interested in the Spaniard, they are hesitant to pay the 80 million being quoted by Madrid, and are willing to pay only 60m for his services. However, it is being understood that if he doesn't feature in Zidane's plans for next season than the club management might sanction his sale.
The 27-year-old who is widely considered as one of the best playmakers in the world, has been integral to Madrid's success in the recent past, making 276 appearances, scoring 47 goals and helping them win one La Liga, one Copa del Rey and four Champions League titles.
