Juventus is going to sell forward Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of the season, according to reports. It will be made to improve the financial situation of the Italian side. The star forward joined Juve in 2018 for £89 million, but the Black and Whites will ask for more next year.
As Spanish outlet Sport reports, the 35-year-old footballer won’t be offered a new deal, which currently allows the player to make £28 million a year. It turns out that this salary isn’t something the side can afford to pay right now amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the Portuguese celebrity will be sold next summer as the Italian side plan to recoup around £100 million.
It is not the only time when Juve have thought of selling Ronaldo as they are going to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain. The Frenchman costs about £360 million, and selling Ronaldo would help the club put together a deal.
The Portuguese international was linked with a transfer to Paris during the summer transfer window, but he stayed in Italy at that time.
