Cristiano Ronaldo: Manchester United and Manchester City are among four clubs interested in signing the Juventus star.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus could be in jeopardy this summer.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus was cast into doubt once again on Sunday when he was benched for Juventus’ 2-2 draw with Udinese. This summer, rumors about Ronaldo have persisted, and he has been connected with a number of clubs across Europe.
According to reports, Ronaldo wanted to be benched for the match and has now asked his club to authorize a transfer away from Turin.
The revelation will have clubs salivating at the thought of signing the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, whose current deal expires in less than a year.
Despite Portugal’s elimination in the round of 16, Ronaldo showed no signs of slowing down at 36 years old. He was the equal top scorer at Euro 2020 this summer.
If the forward leaves Juventus this summer, Express Sport looks at where he might finish up.
During his nine trophy-laden years at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo was at his best.
Between 2016 and 2018, he played a key role in Real Madrid’s three straight Champions League titles, scoring two goals in the 2017 final against his current team.
Carlo Ancelotti, who was in command of Real for two years when Cristiano Ronaldo was there, is back in control.
However, both individuals have already taken to social media this summer to deny any suggestions that Ronaldo would be returning to Spain – but considering the player’s desire to transfer and Los Blancos’ troubles, a deal is still feasible.
Ronaldo’s romantics would want to see him return to the club where it all began.
The Portuguese international began his career with Sporting Lisbon, but it was his move to Manchester United that launched him into the limelight as a global superstar.
Between 2003 and 2009, Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 games for the club.
At Old Trafford, he won his first Ballon d’Or and helped the club win three Premier League titles and the Champions League.
Man United’s attacking department now has an embarrassment of resources, but they might still use one out-and-out goalscorer to lead the line and steer them to Premier League glory.
Manchester City has been linked with a move for Ronaldo. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
