His departure from Real Madrid was one of the reasons why Ronaldo wanted to leave!
Cristiano Ronaldo called James Rodriguez to convince him to go to Juventus Torino in the summer, announced the Spaniards of Marca! Ronaldo and James have been good friends since the two played together at Real and Ronaldo did not hesitate to publicly criticize the Madrid club's decision to leave James.
James is loaned to Bayern Munich this summer, but his future is uncertain. He does not have the best relationship with coach Niko Kovac, nor does the option to return to Real Madrid seem plausible. Then, Ronaldo wants to convince him to change the league again.
Juventus are looking for a new "number 10" as Paulo Dybala is due out in the summer. This is desirable, among other things, by Real Madrid!
