1 Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants Joao Felix to join him at Juventus
And A Bola claims Ronaldo is urging the Old Lady to bring his fellow Portuguese to Turin.
He has trained with the promising young forward in the Portugal set-up and is believed to have been impressed with what he saw.
Felix, 19, is being touted as a future Ballon d'Or winner after scoring 13 times and adding seven assists in 22 league matches.

Corriere dello Sport is claiming former team-mates Raphael Varane and Isco are also named.
