Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly asked the Juventus board to make a bid for Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.

Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly requested that Juventus make an approach for Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.

Within 24 hours of being eliminated at the last-16 stage of the Champions League, Juventus opted to replace head coach Maurizio Sarri with Andrea Pirlo.

However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo wants club officials to make a significant change with regards to their attack.

The Portuguese superstar allegedly wants to be reacquainted with former Real Madrid teammate Karim Benzema, who has just enjoyed one of his best-ever campaigns with Los Blancos.

Ronaldo feels that the Frenchman could prove to be the difference when it comes to ending the club's 25-year wait to win European football's premier competition.

Unless the 32-year-old requests a transfer, Real are unlikely to have little interest in parting ways with the legendary frontman.
