Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent has hinted that the Real Madrid superstar could be on his way to Juventus this summer. Ronaldo, 33, refused to rule out an exit from Madrid following their Champions League triumph at the end of May and Juve are pushing hard to sign the iconic Portugal forward. Reports suggest the Serie A giants are working on an £88million deal to bring Ronaldo to Turin and Madrid president Florentino Perez has decided to accept the bid. It’s understood the former Manchester United star has been offered a £26m-a-year contract by Juve and his agent, Jorge Mendes, has fueled rumours of a move to Italy.
‘If that happens it’ll be a new chapter and a new challenge in his brilliant career,’ he told Portuguese outlet Record. ‘If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he’ll be eternally grateful to the club, the president, everyone who works there; the medical staff, every one of the players without any exceptions, the fans and all the Madridistas found across the world.’
