Ronaldo’s future at Juventus has been subject to speculation for a while.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s future at Juventus has been subject to uncertainty after rumours surfaced regarding his exit from the club.

The 36-year-old was said to be worn out by the Old Lady’s failure in the Serie A and Champions League last season, adding to it his recent debacle with the national team in European Championship.

It led to the former Real Madrid star contemplating his future at Turin, and his agent Jorge Mendes was also said to be on the lookout for new suitors.

Manchester United and PSG have been regularly linked with Ronaldo ahead of a potential summer transfer, with his contract expiring next summer.

Les Parisiens have emerged as the frontrunners as they want to add one of the world’s best forwards to strengthen their attack next season.

However, Bianconeri vice president Pavel Nedved has issued a major update on Ronaldo’s future, stating that the Portuguese would remain with them beyond this summer.

Nedved said: “Cristiano is on holiday. We have no signal from his entourage that he wants to leave.

“We’re waiting for him, and he will return around July 25 as scheduled.”

Despite the failures he suffered at both club and country, Ronaldo’s goal-scoring consistency was never a concern. He garnered 29 goals in Serie A and 5 goals in the Euros – which saw him win the top-scorer award in both competitions.

If Ronaldo is to stay at Turin, he will be looking to get the Old Lady back to winning ways under the tutelage of new manager Max Allegri.
