The Italian coach said that the Mexican could make a great attacking pair with CR7 if he ends up arriving in Turin in this market.
Raul Jimenez would be the “ideal” companion of Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus, says the historical Italian technician Fabio Capello.
The Wolves’ Mexican star has been linked to a move to the Serie A champions after scoring 27 goals in 55 games in the 2019-20 campaign. And Capello believes that the North American can play a role similar to the one that Karim Benzema fulfilled in Madrid with CR7.
“I have seen Raúl Jiménez, he is an important player who has a lot of quality. He is an ideal player to play with Cristiano Ronaldo, because Cristiano has missed a Benzema at Juventus. That could be Raúl Jiménez, “said the Italian in a talk with ESPN.
Likewise, Capello accepted that for the Vecchia Signora to join the Mexican, he would have to sell some players. “The problem for Juve is that they have to sell players and assign players and then enter the market,” she explained.
Ronaldo scored 37 goals in 46 games during the 2019-20 season, but Juve fell short in the Champions League, reaching the round of 16 before being eliminated by Olympique Lyon.
