After joining Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus last summer. Now, reports claim he is set to return to the Bernabeu. Juventus owner Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that Ronaldo requested to leave the club ahead of the transfer window. The deal is a seismic shift in the balance of power in European soccer. With Lionel Messi’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain, Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a return to the Bernabeu.
Cristiano Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009
Ramon Calderon was the Real Madrid club president when Cristiano Ronaldo arrived from Manchester United in 2009. He later resigned, but recounted the story of how the Portuguese international came to the Santiago Bernabeu, saying that he ‘was not easy to convince’ but insisted on the transfer. He went on to play for the Spanish club, winning three successive Premier League titles and twice reaching the Champions League final.
Sir Alex Ferguson was very keen to retain his star player, but his refusal to sell the Portuguese forward triggered a row with the Manchester club. Real Madrid were allegedly unable to get any suitable compensation from United, but Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill both publicly denied selling Ronaldo. But after the deal was completed, both parties were relieved that their stars had finally found the best clubs in the world.
The deal with Real Madrid was reported in the summer of 2009 when the Portuguese international was supposed to join the club for around 80 million pounds. When this deal was rumoured, Perez used his media contacts to announce the signing of Kaka. However, Calderon resigned on January 16, 2009. At the same time, Marca reported that Real Madrid had verbally agreed to sign Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. The deal between the two sides was then confirmed and Ronaldo agreed to sign the deal.
He joined Juventus from Juve in 2018
Manchester United paid Juventus $33 million to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, joining Paul Pogba in the club’s stellar attack. The club has also signed Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood, among others. Ronaldo is a five-time Champions League winner, which would make him the record holder for most European club championships. Ronaldo has scored 134 goals in his career, which already puts him ahead of Pele and Cristiano Messi.
While Juventus have won the Champions League two years in a row, the investment has been a mixed one. The club spent more than $120 million in the summer to sign Ronaldo, but its sporting output has not improved. Juventus FC’s share price has also risen significantly, which means that fans are now paying more attention to the club than ever before. In addition, Juventus sold more jerseys than last season, and the club’s share price increased substantially.
While the Portuguese forward had a storied career at Juventus, the club lost two Champions League finals in a row – to Real Madrid and Barcelona – during his three seasons at the club. Juventus have won seven consecutive Serie A titles under Andrea Agnelli, but have failed to win the Champions League since then. The team has since become obsessed with winning the competition and have been linked with several other clubs in Europe.
He has been linked with a move back to the Bernabeu
While the rumors about Ronaldo’s return to Real Madrid are nothing new, this transfer saga is only resurfacing now. While his former manager Carlo Ancelotti has long denied that a move back to the Bernabeu was in the cards, the Portuguese star himself has hinted that he might consider a move to the Spanish capital. While the Bernabeu has recently been renovated, it isn’t exactly the club’s newest, most modern incarnation.
Although Juventus are not in the same financial crisis as Real Madrid, they were hamstrung by their commitment to the Portuguese superstar. Although Juventus would have loved to keep Ronaldo, they couldn’t afford him and had little choice but to sell. Ronaldo’s salary was so high that few teams could afford to sign him. In the end, the deal didn’t happen but the star player brushed off the speculation by posting an Instagram message dismissing the rumors.
If Cristiano Ronaldo does decide to leave Juventus, he will return to his former club. Juventus’ recent poor form has increased rumours of a possible move back to Real Madrid. Although Juventus could play in the Europa League next season, the club’s financial position will be affected. The club will most likely be in financial trouble if they fail to win the Champions League and it could be a long time before the club will make their first Champions League appearance in the Champions League.
He could return to the Bernabeu in 2019
Juventus have completed the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese superstar, who is valued at PS105m, will try to continue Juventus’ record seven consecutive Scudetto titles. Ronaldo, who joined Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United, has yet to establish himself as the idol he was at the Bernabeu. In addition, the club have failed to win a Champions League since his arrival in Turin.
While it is difficult to determine whether Ronaldo will stay or leave Juventus, there are several rumours linking him with a move away from the club. Juventus’ current contract with Cristiano Ronaldo runs until 2022, meaning the club may seek to sell the player at the end of the 2020-21 season. However, Ronaldo is open to the idea of returning to Madrid. Juventus’ poor relationship with Ronaldo since 2018 has led to speculation that he will return to the Spanish capital.
After a decade of rumors about a potential Juventus move to sign Ronaldo, it has now been officially confirmed that the two clubs will strike a deal. The move is subject to personal terms, visas and a medical exam. Manchester United’s owners are also reportedly interested in the former Manchester United player. Whether the two clubs will strike a deal is unclear. Nevertheless, Ronaldo could return to Real Madrid in 2019.
He could return to Manchester United in 2019
It is possible that Cristiano Ronaldo could return to Manchester United this season. The Portuguese striker has already won three Premier League titles with Manchester United, but the club hasn’t won the league title since 2013. He could make his return to the Red Devils against Newcastle on Sept. 11. However, United didn’t make signing a striker a priority until Ronaldo became available. It was thought that United’s attack-minded players were already overloaded. They let Daniel James leave to Leeds for a reported fee of $25 million.
The Portuguese international, who turns 37 in February, will play for Portugal in the World Cup qualifiers, giving him the chance to become the most prolific scorer in men’s international soccer. His current tally is 117 goals, which ties him with Ali Daei for the most goals in the history of the game. However, the English soccer landscape has changed considerably in the last 12 years since Ronaldo left United for Real Madrid. Manchester City have dominated the Premier League for the last four years.
According to reports, Sir Alex Ferguson and Woodward have met with representatives of Juventus in Paris on Tuesday. While they were optimistic that the deal would be completed, City sources have denied this and are evaluating whether to sign Ronaldo. They’re deciding on stylistic fit, wages and dressing room harmony before finalising the deal. If Ronaldo does decide to return to Manchester, it could be an ideal time to do so.
He is leaving Juventus on a free transfer
Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to leave Juventus on a free transfer next summer. The Portuguese superstar has been out injured this week and was unable to play against Udinese. Although he has a year left on his contract, he’s unlikely to leave the club until Kylian Mbappe leaves for Real Madrid in the summer of 2021. The Portuguese international’s current salary is around PS500,000 a week after tax. It is unclear whether Ronaldo will play for Juventus next season, as there are few other sides that can afford the player.
Manchester City are believed to be the only team that are interested in signing Ronaldo this summer. After failing to sign Harry Kane, Manchester City are looking to sign a recognised striker. It’s not hard to see why Manchester City would be interested in bringing Ronaldo back to the Premier League. But, while Manchester City are the most likely destination for Ronaldo, he could also go to Manchester United or Manchester City.
However, the move might not be as straightforward as it seems. There are a number of reasons why Ronaldo is leaving Juventus. First of all, he’s in his final year of his contract, meaning a move to another club could be tempting. Another reason could be that Juventus are unable to pay his wages. Real Madrid, in particular, are unwilling to pay such a high salary. Therefore, they may prefer to take things year by year, instead of making a sweeping change. Regardless, Ronaldo has been enjoying his time in Turin and Juve have enjoyed having a 30-goal forward. And second, he has plenty of economic “drawing power.”
He has been linked with a move to PSG
It’s been widely reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with securing a move to Paris Saint-Germain. It’s a surprise to see Ronaldo linked with a move to PSG, but the club has a reputation for courting big-name players, including David Beckham, Moura, Silva, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The move to PSG is a big one for the club, as he would provide them with much-needed star power.
Real Madrid have reportedly been monitoring the situation and are in no hurry to make a deal. Paris Saint-Germain are currently working on improving their squad, after parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino and appointing Christophe Galtier as the new manager. Despite his recent departure from Real Madrid, Ronaldo is still considered a highly-coveted player at the club. Real Madrid already have several players in their squad including Vinicius Jr. and Karim Benzema. However, PSG would be risking a lot by signing Ronaldo.
Chelsea have also been linked with signing Cristiano Ronaldo, although their new manager Thomas Tuchel is not a fan. Earlier this summer, the Premier League club denied an attempt to introduce night matches to the Centre Court. Ajax striker Lisandro Martinez has asked the club to allow him to move to the Premier League, despite reports that he is not injured. Meanwhile, Manchester United and Arsenal have both been linked with a move for Jules Kounde.
