– Cristiano Ronaldo does not want to play with Isco and Bale against Juventus
– He feels Isco slows the game down, while Bale is not mentally prepared for the tie
– Juventus will host Real Madrid on Tuesday night, April 3, in the Champions League
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told the club’s coaching crew to drop Spanish star Isco and Gareth Bale for their next game against Italian side Juventus.
Juventus and Real Madrid will go head-to-head on Tuesday night, April 3, in the first leg of their quarter-final tie.
Last season in this same competition, Juventus were beaten by Real Madrid in the final.
Los Blancos are seeking for their third consecutive European title as they look to make up for a miserable domestic campaign this term.
Ronaldo has scored 12 times in the Champions League this season and is looking to taste success in the competition for the fifth time.
And according to the report by Don Balon, Ronaldo feels Isco slows the game down too much and does not want to play with him against Juventus.
He also does not think Bale is mentally prepared to take part in such a huge occasion considering how he has been linked with a move away from Real Madrid
Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale has reportedly told the club’s chiefs to receive an offer from Manchester United this summer for him to leave.
The future of Gareth Bale at Real Madrid has been in the air since January, and there are reports that Tottenham want him back in the Premier League.
But Bale is said to have no interest in returning to former club Tottenham this summer.
