Press reports revealed that the Juventus team is planning to dispense with the services of its Portuguese star, Cristiano Ronaldo, during the upcoming summer transfer period, despite his remarkable brilliance in the Italian Football League.
And global sports reports in the past hours have stated that the Juventus club management is considering selling Cristiano Ronaldo, in the upcoming summer transfer season, in light of the impact of the current Corona virus crisis on all clubs in the world, as well as the huge salary that the player receives.
Cristiano Ronaldo, 35, earns an annual salary of 30 million euros, which is five times the highest-paid player in Juventus after him and his Argentine teammate Paulo Dybala.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus extends until June 2022, but club officials are currently studying, instead of extending the player’s contract, to sell him in the Mercato next summer, in order to obtain the large money as a result.
Andrea Pirlo, the Juventus coach, criticized the performance of his veteran player, Cristiano Ronaldo, in the last match between France and Hungary in the Champions League, and accused him of being selfish.
The Portuguese star scored his team’s goal in the Lazio match (1-1) on Sunday evening, in the seventh round of the Italian League, which is his sixth goal this season, before he came out injured midway through the second half due to an ankle injury.
