The Portuguese football star has been the main man for Real Madrid ever since he joined the club in 2009. However, it is being speculated that his time at Los Blancos is coming to an end, as Ronaldo wants a move away from Real Madrid.
According to MARCA, Juventus are considering a €120m bid for the Real Madrid superstar. And now, transfer expert Gianluca di Marzio has also confirmed the Italian club’s interest. Di Marzio has also reported that Ronaldo wants a move to Juventus as well.
The Italian journalist has suggested that there hasn’t been an official contact with the club from Juventus, however they are in talks with Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes. The Italian club maintains good relations with Mendes, according to Di Marzio.
Ronaldo’s current contract with the club expires in 2021, and he will ‘gladly’ leave the club this summer. The Portuguese forward wants a move to Juventus, and is looking for a salary in the region of €30m net/season in wages.
The relationship between Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid’s president Florentino Perez has ‘completely broken down,’ which has led to Ronaldo eyeing a move away.
