Serie A: Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus and Messi’s mirror



Serie A: Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus and Messi's mirror

After weeks and months of speculation and rumours about his future, Cristiano Ronaldo now looks likely to stay put at Serie A giants Juventus next season.

The Portuguese forward won’t be leaving Turin this summer, and he is expected to return to training on July 25.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that he now wants to stay and that he’s even itching to get back to work already.

Cristiano had been linked to both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain at points this summer, but now La Gazzetta report that there is a real chance of him extending his contract with the Bianconeri beyond its current 2022 expiration.

A significant salary

Jorge Mendes has recently been testing the waters to see if a renewal is on the cards for his client.

In fact, La Gazzetta have written that ‘a very important game is being played from an economic point of view, so Juventus have to handle the matter very carefully. It’s clear that his 60 million euro gross salary has a significant impact on their already-inflated wage bill.’

It’s been suggested that Ronaldo will sign a one-year extension that will see him through until 2023 and then, at 38, he’ll move to a less demanding league.

The same publication have asked, though, if Cristiano could follow Lionel Messi‘s lead by agreeing a pay cut, but that’s likely to depend on what happens when Jorge Mendes and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli meet soon.

On holidays

In the meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo is enjoying a few days’ holidays with his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, after Euro 2020. He will return for pre-season with Juventus later in the month.
