21.05.2021 » Is this Ronaldo's final season with Juventus?
What is the future of the best football player in the world now that, even after three seasons in black and white jersey, Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to deliver a European title to his team? Juventus' 36-year old striker is still delivering top-level performances, as he scored 35 goals for his team in the 2020-21 season, including 8 assists in 44 games. With his 4-year contract coming to an end in June 2022, the future of the player in Turin is still uncertain. Latest reports indicate that Juventus’ bosses are currently not occupied with the continuation of the contract for the veteran superstar, however, the offers from other top European teams are yet to come. Or are they?
Cristiano Ronaldo - Is he really leaving Juventus:
The final season for the GOAT contester?
Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the few players in the world that has every football achievement under his belt, which tells a lot about his individual quality and contribution to his teams. However, the Portuguese superstar doesn't hide his ambition to become the GOAT in football, before his career ends. Interestingly, to achieve this flattering title, Cristiano would have to beat Leo Messi's Golden Boot record, despite the fact that the Barcelona's forward is still two awards in front of the Italian Serie A top scorer for the 20/21 season.
It stands to reason that the upcoming season will see Ronaldo pushing ever harder to get his fifth European Golden Shoe, which could influence the future engagement with the "Bianconeri" from Turin. In order to set a new record, Ronaldo would have to win two consecutive awards after his current contract expires. However, keeping in mind the unparalleled talent, performance quality, and outstanding form, the idea of snatching all the individual awards seems a bit far-fetched due to the player's age according to some football experts.
If he was to end his professional career as the best football player of all time, Ronaldo would have to count on the support of the European sports community, most notably the media, and keep his game in a club that has the capacity to provide the Portuguese goal scorer with the opportunity to achieve his ambition.
Is Cristiano Ronaldo a gambling man?
After the tax fraud scandal during his stay in Spain, the media started digging deeper into the striker's privacy and things he does with all the money he gets from his team, sponsors, and international awards. One of the most interesting activities that came up regarding his activities outside the football pitch is his interest in gambling, precisely high-stake poker games that he enjoys so much.
However, with the COVID-19 pandemic locking down businesses left and right, Ronaldo should attempt to read more about online slots if he's going to keep venting the pressure of being a football superstar through gambling. It's interesting to know that "the original Ronaldo", the Brazilian football superstar from the late 90s, traded the green carpet for the green felt.
As a gambling man, Cristiano Ronaldo should understand the value of high stakes when the game is hot, which is coincided with his current position in Juventus. At this moment, teams across Europe are hemorrhaging money due to the influence of global lockdown, which means that the Italian champions could leave Cristiano Ronaldo without a new contract and have him opting for a less lucrative salary to stay in Italy... Although there are a lot of offers from teams like Beckham's Inter Miami, it appears that Juve will keep its goal-getter as long as the team supplies enough room for Cristiano's individual growth. This is a gamble in which there's no room for bluff, as all sides hold strong cards in their hands.
While the future of Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus is uncertain, one thing is for sure – we are going to witness one of the most interesting football seasons in decades. Juventus is still heavily invested in making the European Super League dream a reality, despite strong opposition from the UEFA side. What the 2021/2022 season would bring for Ronaldo and the rest of the football community is still to be seen...
