21.08.2021 » Allegri assures Ronaldo will stay in Juventus this season!
It's hard to imagine a summer without countless transfer rumors pointing to Cristiano Ronaldo. The fact that he is already 36 years old and he's about to go into his last year of contract with Juventus don't seem to affect this trend, as we've witnessed in the last few weeks and months. At this stage of his career and according to odds from bookmakers experts Tha Bet, Ronaldo is still being strongly linked with a move to multiple giants like Manchester United, City, Real Madrid, or even PSG, who recently signed Lionel Messi from FC Barcelona. However, in the last few days we've seen both Ronaldo himself and now Massimiliano Allegri dismissing those rumors and assuring the public that the Portuguese star is focused on his current club and play for the Bianconeri for another season...
Cristiano Ronaldo - An amazing 2021:
Final year in Juventus?
Cristiano Ronaldo will most likely continue with Juventus for another year, as he hopes to help the Italian side regaining the Serie A title and also get their hands in the UEFA Champions League trophy. This will be Ronaldo's fourth season in Italy and despite the amount of domestic titles already conquered over the course of the last 3 years, there's still a sort of a bitter taste in his journey so far because the Vecchia Signora has failed to deliver in the biggest stage of all, the Champions League.
After Ronaldo himself came to public a few days ago to firmly deny the rumors about a possible transfer this summer, it was now time for the team's manager, Massimiliano Allegri, to also back up the Portuguese's claims.
Allegri calms down the fans!
«I have talked with Cristiano and he told me that he is going to stay with us this season», started by noting the Italian manager, during his pre-match conference for the match against Udinese, scheduled for this Sunday.
«Ronaldo has been training extremely well and from all the talks and interactions we've had, he has never shown any signs of wanting to leave», assured the experienced manager.
No more transfer rumors for Ronaldo this summer...
«I obviously read the rumors that suggested that Cristiano was thinking about moving to another club, but I'm sure that's not true because I've chatted with him and he told me that was never part of his plans», said Allegri.
With 10 days left for the transfer window to close, Juventus hope to see all rumors silenced now, as both Ronaldo and Allegri stepped forward to make a statement and assure the contract will be respected by both parties. Juventus will kickoff their Serie A campaign this Sunday and their debut game isn't exactly an easy fixture. The Bianconeri will visit Udinese at the Dacia Arena, a team who finished 14th last season...
PSG will have to wait for another year...
With the public denial for a shocking move taking this summer, Cristiano Ronaldo basically postpones his future for the summer of 2022. In a year from now, the Portuguese super star will be a free agent and could negotiate directly with whatever club he wants to. We all know the value Ronaldo brings to a club, so the idea of signing him for free will most likely open a massive battle between many top clubs in Europe.
After seeing how PSG was capable of signing Messi from Barcelona in similar circumstances earlier this month, it's hard not to line them up as the favorites to also snatch Cristiano Ronaldo when the right time comes. If that ever happens, we could finally be able to see Ronaldo and Messi playing for the same team!
