Juventus demands €25 million for Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid has a request for the Portuguese
Cristiano Ronaldo hails from Portugal and is already a legend of the sport, besides being the country's greatest footballer already. Currently, he is playing for Juventus, where he has had an average stint, as he is being backed for a return to Real Madrid.
Portuguese football sensation Cristiano Ronaldo is having an average time at Juventus. Since 2018, he has won four titles in Turin but has been deprived of European success.
It was a couple of weeks back when Juventus was knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the pre-quarters to FC Porto. Since then, multiple reports have suggested that Ronaldo could be on his way out of Turin.
The reports somewhat turn out to be accurate, as Juventus has reportedly set a price tag of €25 million for the Portuguese, who has a year in his contract left. In the meantime, Ronaldo has been linked to a move back to his former club Real Madrid.
While Madrid and club manager Zinedine Zidane had already expressed interest in having Ronaldo back, now, the Spanish champion might jump into action with the price tag set. Meanwhile, new reports suggest that Los Blancos might as reasonably request Ronaldo to take a pay cut.
Ronaldo supposedly pockets a whopping €31 million salary with Juventus. However, Madrid cannot afford that much, while it might also barely be able to pay the demanded €25 million.
Besides Madrid, Ronaldo is also being rumoured for returning to his former English club Manchester United, as he has asked his agent Jorge Mendes to try for a move back to either two. However, United is apparently not interested in having the veteran on its side and is instead looking to bolster the squad with fresh, young and promising talents.
