Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus striker ready for further talks on the future this summer

Cristiano Ronaldo is ready for further talks about his future with Juventus this summer.

The Portugal captain has one year left on his contract at the Allianz Stadium and was due to leave the Italian giants if they missed out on Champions League qualifying.

Juventus finished fourth in Serie A on Sunday night, having beaten Bologna 4-1 and Napoli dropped points with a 1-1 draw against Verona.

Ronaldo did not feature in Juve’s last Serie A clash of the season, with boss Andrea Pirlo deciding to leave him on the bench due to ‘fatigue’.

It has been a frustrating season for Juventus as they saw their nine-year Serie A winning streak end with rivals Inter, but they still managed to win the Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia titles.

He wrote on Instagram on Monday: “This year we couldn’t win Serie A, congratulations to Inter for the well-deserved title. However, I must value everything that we have achieved this season at Juventus, both in collective and individual terms.

“The Italian Super Cup, the Italian Cup and the Serie A top scorer’s trophy fill me with happiness, mainly because of the difficulty they bring with them, in a country where nothing is easy. to win.

“With these successes, I achieved a goal that I had set myself since the first day of my arrival in Italy: to win the Championship, the Cup and the Super Cup, and also to be Top Player and Top Scorer in this great country. football filled. with great players, giant clubs and a very clean football culture.

“Thank you to everyone who took part in this trip! We are united! “

Ronaldo helped Juventus win Coppa Italia this season with a 2-1 win over Atalanta in the final last week

Although he didn’t play in the last game, Ronaldo won the Serie A top scorer award with 29 goals in 33 appearances, finishing ahead of Inter striker Romelu Lukaku, who finished with 24 goals.

Ronaldo’s future is tied to the future of Pirlo and sporting director Fabio Paratici, both of whom could leave after a disappointing season.

The 36-year-old costs Juventus £ 52million a year and earns £ 25million after tax, meaning only a club like PSG could afford to sign him.

This would likely only happen if Kylian Mbappe – who also has a year-long contract left – leaves Paris this summer.
