Juventus may reportedly consider putting Cristiano Ronaldo up for sale next summer

Ronaldo’s Juventus stint

In somewhat of a bizarre move at the time, Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus in the summer of 2018.

The Italian powerhouse are understood to have paid around £100m to bring the elite attacker to Turin.

Ronaldo has since gone on to enjoy a decent stint with Juve, notching 71 goals and 19 assists in 94 outings across all competitions.

The former Manchester United star has also helped guide Juventus to two Serie A titles and the Supercoppa Italiana in 2018.

However, Juventus were already dominating domestically before Ronaldo arrived, with the Bianconeri no doubt hoping the forward would have instead helped them achieve success in Europe.

But since his arrival, Juventus have been pretty average in Europe, crashing out of the Champions League at the quarter-final and last 16 stages.

Juventus to sell Ronaldo?

Ronaldo, now 35, has just under two years left on his current Juventus contract.

And whilst some fans may be hoping the 167-time capped international sees out the full length of that deal, recent speculation from Spain suggests that may not be the case.

Like many clubs, Juventus were not immune to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, with Ronaldo and co. taking a four-month pay-cut back in March.

However, it does seem as though Juventus are still struggling somewhat financially and according to Spanish outlet Sport, the €31m-a-season Ronaldo currently earns is maybe becoming ‘unaffordable’.

Sport add that Juve, instead of renewing Ronaldo’s current contract, are considering putting Ronaldo up for sale next summer to try and recoup some of the cash they paid to Real Madrid back in 2018.
