Ronaldo gives Sarri green light to complete Lukaku transfer

Cristiano Ronaldo has told Juventus bosses his thoughts on Romelu Lukaku transfer saga as the Italians close in.

The Manchester United striker has been heavily linked with a move to Turin, and Juve are keen on securing a deal for Lukaku in a player plus cash deal.

According to The Sun, the Italian giants have offered Argentine playmaker Paulo Dybala, Croatian striker Mario Manzukic and £10million as a package deal for the 26-year-old this week.

However, the wage demands of Dybala appear to be an obstacle as the attacking midfielder wants to be among the top earners at the club, plus he favours a stay in Italy.

Mandzukic, 33, would be a handy player to have as cover the No.9 role if Lukaku is to depart the club this summer.

And, according to the same report, Juve chiefs even asked their prized asset, Ronaldo, over the recruitment of the Belgian international, who approved of the idea.

The I Bianconeri have seemingly starved off competition from Inter Milan, who looked to be in the driving seat to land the former Chelsea and Everton striker.

With Antonio Conte wanting Lukaku to lead his attack at the San Siro.
