Sevilla ace Rakitic: Ronaldo called me about joining Juventus

Sevilla ace Ivan Rakitic admits Cristiano Ronaldo has urged him to make the move to Juventus.

Ronaldo made the call in 2019 when Rakitic was still with Barcelona.

“In the summer of 2019, Cristiano called me personally to suggest I go to Juve," said the Croatia international.

“He told me that the club wanted me too, but the transfer didn't go through. Barcelona were asking for €50m and it was too much."

Rakitic also told 24sata: “Ronaldo is one of the greatest of all time. You really enjoy watching him and what he's doing at Juventus."
