Despite Cristiano Ronaldo’s desire to leave, Juventus Turin has assured that it wants to keep its Portuguese star this season.
An absence that did not go unnoticed … While the Juventus Turin started his season on Sunday, on the ground of Udinese (1-1), Cristiano Ronaldo did not appear in the starting XI concocted by Massimiliano Allegri. The reason ? The five-fold Golden Ball would have asked to leave Piedmont this summer, according to several transalpine sources.
According to the information of Sky Sport Italy, CR7 “Would always push to find a way out” by the end of the summer transfer window scheduled for August 31. However, Bianconeri leaders have reportedly received no offers for their 36-year-old striker. However, they would be ready to accept an offer around 30 million euros to let go of their Lusitanian star who still has a year of contract.
Nedved calms things down
On the other hand, the story is very different from the Turin decision-makers, who through the voice of Pavel Nedved have denied the rumors of departure. “The choice to start on the bench was made in agreement with the player”, thus assured the Czech, and to add: “Will Ronaldo be a Juve player this season? Certainly. Do not look for sensational things where there are none. It is a joint decision with the coach because we are at the start of the season and it is normal that he is not yet on top. “
