Will Antoine Griezmann replace Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus?
Portuguese football sensation Cristiano Ronaldo could be just a game away from wrapping up his Juventus stint. While his next destination remains unknown, French star Antoine Griezmann could replace him in Turin from Barcelona.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese football sensation who has been doing good at Juventus for the past three seasons. However, owing to lack of European success, followed by shaky domestic performance, he could be on his way out of Turin.
Ronaldo still has a year in his contract left but is willing to move out this summer if Juventus fails to book the UEFA Champions League spot. Consequently, he has been linked to a return to Real Madrid, Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon, while Paris Saint-Germain is also another possible destination.
Meanwhile, fans and experts wonder who could replace Ronnie at Juventus should he decide to leave this summer. According to Sport, French star Antoine Griezmann could be one of the favourites.
Griezmann so far has had an average stint in Barcelona following his move from Atletico Madrid. Furthermore, the publication claims that the Catalan is looking for a squad overhaul, which could also see the Frenchman on his way out.
However, signing Griezmann right now seems like a hectic task for the Bianconeri, as the Frenchman has a contract until 2024 at Camp Nou. With Juventus having budget issues, it could consider having him on loan right now, besides going for his full-time services once the financial situation improves post the pandemic.
Nevertheless, it is unclear if Griezmann would be interested in moving to Turin right now. He has so far scored 34 goals in 98 games for Barca, while he was sensational at Atletico Madrid, scoring 133 in 257.
