Cristiano Ronaldo likes to keep his fans on edge, and this summer has been no different. The Portuguese forward is at the center of speculation of a transfer when Juventus failed to win the UEFA Champions League again. In a recent social media post, he hinted that his future could be decided sooner rather than later.
On Monday, Ronaldo faced off Instagram Posing with one of your luxury cars to share a secret photo of yourself dressed up. Interestingly, he headlined Snap: “Judgment Day.”
Of course, he is talking about a completely different decision. However, he knows he will need to “negotiate” with Joint Management soon. The five-time Balloon DR winner has a contract that runs until the end of next season, and it is customary to discuss the extension at this time.
It remains to be seen whether he will share his long-term future with the touring party. If he decides not to extend his current contract, the club could be forced to take money from him this summer instead of losing him on a free transfer next year.
So far, the club has given no indication that it intends to leave Euro 2020 and Serie A as top scorers. Officials have maintained that Ronaldo is still a Juventus player, and Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez has openly claimed that his man is staying. Meanwhile, Ronaldo himself has not said anything about wanting to leave.
The latest reports suggest that a one-year extension will be on the table, but he will have to accept a pay cut, similar to Lionel Messi’s current Barcelona offer. Elsewhere, rumors of a possible return of Manchester United and a large sum of money from Paris Saint-Germain remain in the air, but these rumors come to every transfer window and no concrete offer has come forward.
