Romeo Agresti, an Italian journalist at Goal.com, announced on Monday that Juventus may want to sell Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese moved from Real Madrid to Turin in 2018 to help the club win the Champions League, but failed in the previous two seasons. A major factor influencing Ronaldo’s situation at the club is also finances during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Portuguese, whose contract only expires in June 2022, earns no less than 31 million euros per year at Juventus. According to the media, the salary of a football player is a major pressure on the club’s budget, especially in times of pandemic. Agresti said Juventus authorities want to get back some of the € 100 million spent on Ronaldo this summer, so they may decide to sell the striker.
PSG reports to Cristiano Ronaldo?
Where could Ronaldo go if the Italian champion decided to sell him? There is a lot of evidence that the race for an experienced striker would include PSG. Maybe Ronaldo will wake up one day and say he wants to play for another club. Who could buy it then? It’s a closed circle. PSG is his. It’s a matter of coincidence, the situation, said Leonardo, the sports director of the French champions, quoted by the Daily Mail.
And he added, we are preparing for the next transfer windows, we have specific lists and priorities, but something unexpected could also happen. Last year, our financial loss was about 15-20 percent. This year it will definitely get bigger. To be honest, however, I must admit that PSG has the resources and the capacity to overcome the crisis.
Before joining Juventus in 2018, Ronaldo played for Real Madrid for nine years, where he joined Manchester United. The Portuguese is a five-time winner of the Champions League. The same number of times, Ronaldo has received the Golden Ball, the award for the best player of the year.
