Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo has entered the final year of his contract with Torino, and there has been speculation that he may want to move to another club. However, Juventus vice-president Paul Nedweed has said that the Portugal captain is not going anywhere.
Juventus got Rivaldo back from Real Madrid in 2018, with the main goal of winning the UEFA Champions League. After already dominating the domestic scene in Italy, the club wanted to get its hands on a passionate European trophy. Fast forward to 2021, not only has he failed to win the Champions League so far, he has also failed to defend his Serie A title.
There are speculations that Ronaldo may be leaving. However, Nedavid has reiterated that the club has no plans to sell the move. While the club itself had a disappointing season, Ronaldo’s individual performance has been impressive.
The 36-year-old was the top scorer in Sri Lanka last season, adding 29 goals to his total of 81 out of 97 in the league since joining Juventus. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is expected to return to his summer vacation on Monday, and will be involved in the team’s pre-season preparations, Naveed said.

French companies were spreading rumors in Paris Saint-Germain that they were interested in signing a blockbuster for Ronaldo, with the return of former clubs Real Madrid, Manchester United and Sporting Lebanon.
Real Madrid rushed to put the rumors to bed, emerging as front-runners for the PSG player’s signature. However, now it seems that this move is not going to happen, if Nedavid’s words are to be believed.
Meanwhile, Juventus players Palo Debala and Giorgio Chiellini are also being linked with a move away from Turin. Nedved said both players are also expected to stay, as the club is already looking forward to meetings with the players’ agents in the coming days.
