Cristiano Ronaldo urges Juventus teammate Paulo Dybala to join Manchester United this summer, according to a report.

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala has reportedly been urged by Cristiano Ronaldo to join Manchester United in this summer's transfer window.

Dybala and Ronaldo are now teammates in Turin, with the latter completing a move to the Italian champions from Real Madrid ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

United have been strongly linked with a move for Dybala in recent days, with the Argentina international said to have been offered to the English giants as part of a swap for Romelu Lukaku.

The 25-year-old is allegedly stalling on a move to Old Trafford as he is concerned by the club's lack of involvement in the Champions League during the coming season.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Ronaldo told Dybala in the Juve players' WhatsApp group that the South American should move to United and become 'a champion'.

Ronaldo became the most expensive teenager in English football history when he arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2003.

The Portuguese scored 118 times in 292 appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side, winning three Premier League titles, one FA Cup, two League Cups and the Champions League.
