Cristiano Ronaldo is the biggest name in football alongside his fierce rival, Lionel Messi. Both players have been blessed with the ability to turn everything to gold with their touch, which is why football clubs often inquire about their availability.
Personal Terms Agreed With Juventus: Reports
In the latest development, Juventus are reportedly close to signing the Portuguese legend. Ronaldo, who recently won his 4th Champions League medal with Real Madrid, is said to have already reached an agreement with Juventus.
According to Goal.com and renowned journalist, Gianluca Di Marzio, Ronaldo will sign a four-year contract which is worth €30 million (£26.5m/$35m) per season.
However, a deal between clubs is yet to take place which is expected to be around €100m (£88m/$117m), but could go as high as €120m (£106m/$140.5m), the site added.
Some pundits claim that Zindane’s departure as a manager might have also influenced Ronaldo to step aside and let other players take over.
Manchester United to Swoop In?
Although Juventus remain the prime candidates to sign Ronaldo as of now, but the rumors have also emerged that Manchester United are also weighing the pros and cons of Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford.
Following a hot and cold season, Manchester United fans need a boost and with Ronaldo’s signing, it could be a step towards the right direction.
Even though Ronaldo is 33, he still maintains a great game-to-goal scoring ratio. The Portuguese scored 34 goals in 2018, which means an average of 1.17 goals per game.
Out of those 34 goals, 28 goals came in 22 games in 2018 (22 goals in 15 La Liga and 6 goals in 7 Champions League games). Ronaldo also scored 4 goals in World Cup 2018 including his stunning hat-trick in Group Stages against Spain.
