Juventus superstar and former Real Madrid player, Cristiano Ronaldo has made a big revelation, admitting that he would love to face the Los Blancos in the final of the UEFA Champions League this season.
The two sides could be drawn in the round of 16 stage after Madrid finished second in their group, behind Paris Saint-Germain while Juventus easily topped Group D. The 34-year-old though wants to face his former side in the final of Europe's premier competition calling them an "extraordinary" side.
"Real Madrid are an extraordinary side but I'd prefer to play them later on. Maybe in the final, I'd take that right now," he said to Sky Sport, as quoted by Marca.

The Bianconeri have a plethora of attacking riches at their disposal at the moment, with the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala battling it out for a place in the side, something which the Portugese star claims doesn't affect them and that they have a lot of fun playing together.
"We have a lot of fun. When alongside Dybala and Higuain. The understanding we have is excellent. It's obvious that the coach makes the decisions and we must respect them, but I cannot hide the fact that we have a lot of fun playing together," he concluded.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has not had the best of times this season, netting just nine goals in 18 games, which is way below his usual high standards.
