It is a revolution which is preparing for Juventus Turin. Yesterday, we told you about the plans being drawn up on the side of the leaders of the Old Lady, with a possible new president, a probable new coach and a reorganization of the workforce. Because after three years, it is now clear that the initial plan, Cristiano Ronaldo, did not work. The goal was to go for a victory in the Champions League and Juve did not achieve it. Worse, it could even fail in the qualification race for the next season, which would be a real disaster for the finances.
The question of the future of the 36-year-old Portuguese therefore arises clearly. Especially since the latter shows a different attitude in recent weeks, as reported The Gazzetta dello Sport. More nervous, with more frequent and visible signs of annoyance, the attacker seems to resign himself when the scenario does not turn in his favor. This has been the case in his last three meetings (Genoa, Parma, Fiorentina), in which he has not scored, approaching his record for scoreless minutes with Juventus. His absence during the trip to Bergamo was also well noted.
A departure on the agenda
The newspaper with pink paper assures him, Cristiano Ronaldo isolates himself in the locker room and has little contact with his teammates outside. Also the sign that he is preparing for a departure? He would have mandated his agent Jorge Mendes to find him a way out this summer. If Juventus fails to qualify for the next Champions League, his departure will appear certain, he who wants to continue to shine in this competition every season. And even if Juve got their ticket, a departure would still be considered, also because the club would not be against the saving of the player’s salary (31 M € net per year).
Today, the best option for Cristiano Ronaldo would be Manchester United. Already because Real Madrid closed the door, through its president Florentino Pérez. Then because the English club would have no problem welcoming the Portuguese and swallowing up his emoluments. If the first poles have been stretched, we are still far from concrete steps for a return to Old Trafford, and we will have to wait until the end of this particular season to know the true intentions of both camps.
