The Portuguese press are following the Cristiano Ronaldo saga closely, and they claim that he has said yes to an offer from Juventus.
Portuguese outlet ‘O Jogo’ are reporting on their website that the Real Madrid forward has accepted an offer from the Italian giants, which would see him earn €120m over four seasons.
With Portugal out of the World Cup, the country’s press has turned its attention to the star striker’s every move. The aforementioned outlet is stating in no uncertain terms that Ronaldo has said yes to Juve, who have been a fan of the 33-year-old since he was a youngster.
‘O Jogo’ go further and explain the reasons behind Cristiano’s intention to leave. Firstly they suggest that he has fallen out with Real Madrid’s president, stating that his relationship with Florentino Perez has broken down completely.
Furthermore, the magnitude of Juve’s offer has enticed the forward. Ronaldo has been tempted by the interest shown by the Turin side, as well as the €30m salary they are proposing.
Ronaldo made waves with his statements after the Champions League final, and only the World Cup has managed to put the story on the backburner. However, with Portugal knocked out by Uruguay, agent Jorge Mendes has now turned his focus to sorting out his representee’s situation. Could Ronaldo be on his way out of Madrid after nine years?
