Ex-Torino star Kieft backing Juventus bid for Ronaldo

Former Ajax and Torino star Wim Kieft hopes Juventus can land Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo

Kieft spent four years in Italy during his playing career and is delighted by Juve's show of ambition.

"For Italy it is to be hoped that the flirtation of Cristiano Ronaldo with Juventus is not to boost his salary at Real Madrid, but that he really comes to the Serie A," he told De Telegraaf.

"With the exception of Juventus and to a lesser extent AS Roma, it is still in a hole and the Italians have lost contact with England and Spain."

Kieft added: "The big question remains: 'What can Ronaldo do?' And: 'Can he still do it?' In the spring Ronaldo still convinced for the Juve-Real in the Champions League match with that great overhead kick. And he is ambitious. I would find it a spectacular transfer, which I would like to see take place."
