Juventus boss Sarri meets Cristiano Ronaldo on his yacht

Maurizio Sarri has already set about making Juventus plans for next season and made a personal trip to visit talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who is holidaying with family on board a luxury yacht.

Sarri headed out to speak to Ronaldo in Navarino on the Peloponnese coast, to introduce himself and talk through tactics and goal-scoring expectations for next season. And it’s a high number he is demanding from the former Real Madrid man.

Italian publication Gazetta dello Sport claim Sarri has told Ronaldo his new-look Juve will be built around him, though he expects a mammoth 40-goal haul next season after making a ‘tactical move’ to play the forward in his most effective advanced role.
