Football player Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Juventus this summer: Reports
- Cristiano Ronaldo likely to leave Juventus this summer
- Reportedly, the Portuguese player will join Sporting Lisbon
- Joining Sporting Lisbon will mean Ronaldo will have to take a huge pay cut
Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to bid adieu to his present football club, Juventus. Ronaldo currently has just one year remaining on his contract with the Bianconeri. According to Tuttojuve, Cristiano Ronaldo's supercars were seen being loaded into a cargo truck owned by a company based in Lisbon, which has compelled many to believe that the five-time Ballon D'Or could make a sensational return to Portugal.
Furthermore, Ronaldo's mother sparked a debate over her son's future when she told Sporting Lisbon fans that he would probably return. The 36-year-old star footballer is reportedly interested in moving back to Portugal to be with his family.
Also, Ronaldo has often been criticised during his time in Italy for his inability to make a mark big games. Apparently, his humongous €30 million-per-year salary is also proving to be a massive financial burden on Juventus.
There have been speculations about Ronaldo joining either Manchester United or Real Madrid. But, the recent reports have suggested that he would like to end his career in Portugal with his boyhood club.
If the former Real Madrid star joins Sporting Lisbon, this move can make the club a European superpower. The Portuguese star player will, however, have to take a massive pay cut if he joins Sporting Lisbon.
