FOOTBALL – Juventus Mercato: The verdict is in for Cristiano Ronaldo

Since the elimination of Juventus in the Champions League, the future of Cristiano Ronaldo raises questions in Turin. On Sunday, the management of the Bianconeri wanted to remove the mystery about the Portuguese.

Juventus has decided for Ronaldo

Since the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, Juventus have struggled to get past the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Worse, the Bianconeri remain on two consecutive eliminations in the last 16 of the Champions League. After the recent exit of Juve by FC Porto in the Champions League, CR7 has again found himself under fire. Some detractors of the Portuguese announced it on the departure. A return to Real Madrid was proposed. After Andrea Pirlo, Fabio Paratici spoke about the future of CR7. The sporting director of the Old Lady decided this Sunday after the defeat at home against Benevento (0-1).

“We decided to keep Cristiano Ronaldo. He is the best player in the world and he will stay with us,” said Fabio Paratici quoted by local sources. Recruited in 2018 after the elimination of Portugal in the World Cup, CR7 is therefore gone to honor his contract until its end with the non-two time Italian champion. At the end of the current fiscal year, he will have only one more year of contract to fulfill. In addition to their premature elimination from the Champions League, Juventus seems to be on the verge of letting go of their holy grail. Third in Serie A, Andrea Pirlo‘s men are 10 points behind Inter Milan (1st) with 11 games to go. In spite of this collective bad situation, the five-time Golden Ball winner has had an outstanding season on an individual level. He has scored 30 goals and provided 4 assists in 34 appearances this season.
