There are indications that Juventus talisman, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus on one condition.
This is following the statements of PSG’s Director of sport Leonardo, who said the Portugal captain can decide to wake up one morning a decide to join a new team.
Since joining the Serie A giant, Ronaldo has become the focal point of the team. On his debut season, he won the highest goalscorer of the league award and the best player award as well.
Since then, he has not stopped being an important player for the Bianconerri. This is because he is player that guarantees them 30 plus goals each season.
Due to COVID-19 infection, his participation has been reduced to 5 games with six goals this season.
“As for Ronaldo, if he wakes up in the morning and says: ‘I want to join a new team,’ where can he go?,” Leonardo said on Tuesday.
“There are only five or six clubs he can join, it’s a closed circle and PSG are including in it. We always prepare our market and our list of priorities, sometimes extraordinary things can happen,” Leonardo was quoted saying that.
Despite being in love with Juventus, will Ronaldo leave next summer?
Tuttosport reports that neither Ronaldo nor Juventus are want to part ways at the end of the season. The Portuguese star wants to stay and win the Champions League at least with the Old Lady before leaving.
However, a report of La Gazzetta dello Sport, states that Ronaldo’s future in Turin depends on the team’s results this season.
“If the results Ronaldo expect won’t arrive he could take a look around with PSG that would be a possible destination,” the Milan-based paper reports.
Ronaldo would comfortably slot into any team. This makes him a hot cake as he has proven times without number that he can be a game changer and a match winner.
AS reported by AS, Manchester United have also expressed interest in their former player. The Old Trafford outfit is planning a bid to bring the Portuguese back to Old Trafford more than 10 years after he left to join Real Madrid in a then-world record transfer in 2009.
Fox Sports also reported that United have spoken to Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, during a meeting in Porto. Their position is if Ronaldo become available, the Old Trafford board would pull out all the stops to land the Portugal captain.
Any deal would depend on Ronaldo’s willingness to return to the Premier League. If the Juventus forward decides on a new challenge next summer, a year before his contract expires, Juventus will not stand in his way.
In case they fail to land the Champions League trophy, the Serie A giant might consider selling him, taking him off their wage bill and recoup some of the initial €100m they paid to Real Madrid for the player.
This is a clear invitation to any suitors to start the bidding somewhere in the region of half that fee. United is therefore likely to face stiff competition for the Portuguese from Paris Saint-Germain if he is made available.
We will be on the look out for the latest concerning the future of the 35-year-old star.
