Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo wants the club to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid in the summer, as he believes that the arrival of the Frenchman will not only boost the chances of them winning the UEFA Champions League, but it would also help him in the race to win the Ballon d'Or award.
As per Fox Sports, the 34-year-old is in favour of selling Paulo Dybala, finding him to be the weak link in the squad as he believes that the Argentine international drags down the performance of the whole team, as seen by his poor performances in Europe last season.

Ronaldo wants Griezmann to replace Dybala at the club as he believes that the striker would be a perfect addition to the squad, as the club chase the ever elusive European club, last winning it in 1996.
The French striker's future though is far from certain, with nothing official emerging amid reports that he was expected to move to Barcelona. French club, Paris Saint-Germain too have put their name in the mix and are considering launching a bid for him, but first they need to sort out the Neymar situation at the club.
It will be interesting to see where Griezmann eventually moves in the summer and whether Ronaldo's wishes are granted by Juventus.
