Where will Ronaldo continue his career? It looks like there are three options
Cristiano Ronaldo may still leave Juventus before the summer transfer window closes. There are still a lot of rumors around the star Portuguese. Who is currently applying for Ronaldo?
A week ago, Corriere dello Sport reported that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes had offered services to his client, Manchester City. And now L’Equipe claims that the 36-year-old is exploring the option of joining Josep Guardiola’s team . He even talked to several of the Citizens’ players, discussing the situation at the club with them.
Juventus, in turn, has already set a price for Cristiano. The Italian club wants to receive € 25-30 million for the transfer of Ronaldo. At the same time, the market value of the Portuguese on the Transfermarkt portal is € 45 million.
Journalist Gianluca Di Marzio notes that now the potential deal looks difficult to implement, because Manchester City does not want to pay for the transfer. In addition, the “townspeople” intend to get rid of Raheem Sterling . In this case, the proceeds from the sale can be spent on Ronaldo.
Another journalist, Simone Rovera , claims that Cristiano’s priority is moving to Manchester City. According to the source, the player discussed a possible transfer not only with the Citizens’ players, but also with a number of Juventus players.
Ronaldo has the option of joining PSG, which Leo Messi has already signed as a free agent this summer . The president of the Parisian club Nasser Al-Helaifi does not hide the fact that he wants to see the Portuguese and the Argentine in the same team. Most recently, Khalifa bin Hamad Al-Thani , brother of PSG owner Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani , tweeted a photo of Messi and Ronaldo wearing Parisian uniforms.
“May be?” – signed the photo of the sheikh.
At the same time, it was Khalifa Al-Thani who previously announced an agreement with Messi. Still, Ronaldo’s move to Paris this summer is unlikely. But a year later, his contract with Juventus will expire, which means that Manchester City and PSG will have more chances.
It seems that now the most logical option for Cristiano is to stay in Turin and leave as a free agent next summer. It is unlikely that Juventus will agree on a new contract with the player, so the Turin people need to either sell it in the coming days (or in winter), or release it in a year without compensation.
