Juventus Want To Sign Another World Class Player

Juventus have bolstered their attack with the stunning signing of Cristiano Ronaldo, and it appears the Italian champions are set to sign another player in the shape of a qualify defender.

It's official; Ronaldo is a Juventus player.

He's completed an incredible £88 million transfer, penning a four-year contract worth a reported £28.5 million a season.

And it seems like Ronaldo isn't going to be the only new face arriving at Juventus.

According to Italian outlet Tuttosport, Juventus want to reinforce their defensive back line with the club planning to table an offer for Diego Godin.

The 32-year-old is out of contract next year and while Atletico Madrid are hoping to tie him down to a new deal, Juventus have reportedly placed him high on their transfer wish list.

The Uruguayan international has been plying his trade in the red and white side of the Spanish capital since 2010 following a transfer from Villarreal, and he's been a wonderful player for the club producing heroics in the heart of Atleti's defence.

If Juventus can poach Real Madrid's best player and one of Atletico's finest performers ahead of the new season, it'll no doubt stand the 'Old Lady' in good stead to attack major honours including the coveted Champions League.

Contingency transfers include Godin's Atletico teammate Stefan Savic not to mention Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi.

Reports also had suggested Juventus were keen on acquiring the services of Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng, but they are believed to be out of the race for his signature.
