A report claims that Cristiano Ronaldo gave Juventus the green light to go after Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly urged his side to go all out to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United.

The Italian champions are considered the frontrunners to land the 26-year-old before the transfer window closes after stealing a march on fierce rivals Inter Milan.

Lukaku was pictured leaving United's Carrington training complex on Wednesday as talks between the two sides continue, with Paulo Dybala possibly being included as part of a swap deal.

According to The Sun, Ronaldo was previously consulted by Juve chiefs regarding their move for the Belgium international and he gave it the green light.

The report indicates that the transfer now comes down to Dybala and whether the Argentinian attacker wants to join Ronaldo's former club United.
