Cristiano Ronaldo plots Juventus exit
Report from Italy claims that Cristiano Ronaldo will cut short his stay at Juventus and leave the Serie A giants this summer.
Ronaldo, 35, has two more years left on the monster four-year contract he signed in the summer of 2018 as he switched Real Madrid for Juve.
According to the report from Radio Rossonera, Ronaldo spent plenty of time during the coronavirus suspension to think about his future and may agree to move on from Juventus after the 2019-20 season is over due to high wages and the impact it is having on the Turin club.
Where could Ronaldo go? Of course, only a handful of clubs could afford him and Paris Saint-Germain would sit right at the top of that list, especially with Edinson Cavani set to leave on a free transfer this summer.
MLS could be another option, and it is one Ronaldo has spoken positively about in the past, but right now staying in Europe may be the better play until the long-term situation over the coronavirus pandemic becomes clearer. Ronaldo has delivered goals galore, as expected, at Juve. He’s scored 53 goals in 75 games, won the Italian title last season and has Juventus top of the league this season too.
UEFA Champions League glory remains the ultimate goal for Juventus and if Ronaldo can help them overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg of their Round of 16 clash against Lyon, they will be among the favorites to go all the way when the tournament is expected to resume in August.
Ronaldo looks set to follow the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic in having an incredibly long playing career and by those standards he’s still a few years away from heading to MLS.
