Portugal star Ronaldo casts doubt on Juventus future ahead of Hungary clash

Cristiano Ronaldo-Portugal

The 36-year-old has been linked with a move away from Turin.

Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo is currently in the preparations for Euro 2020 as his side is set to face Hungary in the first group stage game on Tuesday.

Ahead of the clash, the 36-year-old was questioned about his future at Juventus, to which he gave a rather cryptic reply. He also insisted that he is solely focused on European Championship.

Ronaldo said: “I’ve been playing at a high level for 18 years; it doesn’t even tickle me. If I were starting now, being 18 or 19 maybe, I wouldn’t sleep thinking about my future.

“But as you can calculate by now, at 36-years-old… whatever comes will be for good, regardless of whether one stays or leaves, that’s not the most important thing now. The focus is on the national team. A competition of this magnitude you don’t play every day.”

Juventus endured a gruesome season under Andrea Pirlo as they managed to secure the top-four spot on the final matchday of Serie A while their bad streak in the Champions League continued.

Ronaldo was indeed the saving grace of the Bianconeri as the ex-Real Madrid star managed to continue raising the bar regardless of his age. However, a turbulent season spurred transfer rumours of Ronaldo, though he has a year in his current deal.

The appointment of Max Allegri as Juve’s new manager further fuelled the exit speculations as Ronaldo had previously criticised the Italian’s tactics.

The former Manchester United star will leave behind the troubled season with the Old Lady and look to achieve success with the national team.
