Danilo makes a Prediction about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future
The Brazilian defender told Gazzetta dello Sport of the speculation surrounding Ronaldo: “Having him in the team is important for us because he brings an avalanche of goals, and besides, he’s a dear friend, we’ve known each other since Real Madrid.
“He’ll still be with us next season.”
Gabriel Jesus to Juventus?
It is being reported that Juventus are looking for another striker. FC Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann was on their radar, but the Frenchman’s huge wages has compelled the Italians to rethink.
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has now emerged as a possible alternative. Gabriel Jesus’ current contract with Manchester City expires in 2023 and his market value is estimated at €60 Million. However, City can sell the striker for cheaper.
Danilo said that he would love Gabriel Jesus to join him at Juventus.
“Of course, Gabriel is good and very intelligent,” Danilo said of the links to the 24-year-old.
“He could grow more in Italy because in Serie A they close down well and it’s harder to score. If I could, I would bring him to Juventus.”
