Patrice Evra believes Juventus is the perfect club for Cristiano Ronaldo to join if he wants to continue winning trophies – even ahead of Manchester United.

The Portuguese winger looks increasingly likely to leave Real Madrid this summer after a breakdown in his relationship with Florentino Perez, with Italian giants Juve working on an £88million deal to bring him to Turin.

There have been suggestions that former club United might seek to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford, but Evra – who played for both clubs – wants to see him in Italy.

Speaking during an Instagram live video, Evra mused: ‘Everyone asks me, “Pat, what do you think?”

‘I haven’t spoken to Cristiano about this, but my advice is, if he wants to play to 2050, he has to go to Juve. There is no other team he must join. It’s simple.

‘I thank Juve, because if after Manchester I continued to win and to run, it was thanks to Juve. You should never spit on the plate that fed you, so Juve will always be in my heart.’

After a brief rendition of the Juve anthem, he continued: ‘So Cristiano, I tell you this: make the right choice.

‘You know how much the Italians love you, but it’s a sacrifice. If you go to Juve, it’s to work and to work HARD. This lot, ha, don’t know what a vacation is.

‘But that’s the choice. Either you want to continue playing to 2050 or just carry on for a bit. I can tell you this. If you go to Juve, you’ll be at the next World Cup not as a mascot, but as a protagonist. A PROTAGONIST!’
