Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus striker leaves Italy after saying goodbye to his teammates | football news

Cristiano Ronaldo boarded a private jet from Turin after saying goodbye to his Juventus teammates as coach Max Allegri confirmed his imminent exit from the club.

The 36-year-old spent an hour and a half at Juventus’ Contasa training ground on Friday morning to empty his wardrobe and bid farewell to the team before they took to the pitch for a training session.

Later on Friday, Allegri confirmed that Ronaldo had told him he had “no intention” of staying at the club and would not be called up for Saturday’s match against Empoli.

“Yesterday, while talking to Cristiano, he told me that he does not intend to stay at Juventus and for this reason, he will not be called up tomorrow.” [against Empoli] “And he didn’t train this morning,” Allegri said.

“I’m not disappointed at all, because Cristiano made his decision. He’s been here for three years, made his contribution, put himself at Juventus’ disposal, and now he’s leaving and life goes on.”

“Cristiano has done a lot for this club, he is a great champion, I wish him all the best in the world wherever he plays. He made a great contribution, for the season I coached him he was a role model for the players, so he is just to be thanked for what he did for Juventus.”

With reports of Cristiano Ronaldo possibly returning to the Premier League, we take a look at some of his best goals of his time at Manchester United.

Ronaldo arrived at Castel Airport in Turin around 1.30 pm and took a private plane to Lisbon, and his future is scheduled to be determined in the next few hours.

Meanwhile, Manchester City are no longer in talks to sign the 36-year-old after pulling out of talks on Friday and Manchester United is now the favorite to make a great move.

City was offered Ronaldo and considered a deal to sign him, as he believed they were the player’s first choice.

However, despite acknowledging his qualities as a player, there has not been a great deal of enthusiasm among the City’s board of directors as it is not the profile the club would normally seek.

Pep Guardiola said, while Manchester City are in talks to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, players of the Portugal captain’s caliber are deciding their transfers themselves.

Ronaldo is now looking elsewhere, and Mendes is in talks with United over a deal that would see the Portugal captain return to the club.

Ronaldo is in the final year of his contract in Turin and the Italian giants are asking any suitor to pay a €25m (£21.3m) transfer fee, which could be a major stumbling block on top of his £500,000 weekly wage at Allianz Stadium.

Juventus have yet to receive an official offer and there is still some way before a deal can be struck and time is tight to complete the deal before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

Ronaldo was a surprise omission for Juventus in the starting line-up 11 in the 2-2 draw with Udinese on Sunday and came off the bench to score the winning goal in the 94th minute, which was canceled by the VAR for a marginal offside.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future and says “he knows we’re here”.

The 36-year-old wants to keep playing at the highest level for as long as possible, but not everyone at City is convinced the former United player is what they need.

Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018 for a fee of £105m, and scored 101 goals in 134 games for the club, helping them win two Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia crown and two Italian Super Cups.

Juventus are in advanced talks to sign Moise Kean from Everton, who scored 17 goals in 41 appearances while on loan at Paris Saint-Germain last season.

“Fans here feel very saddened by Ronaldo’s departure.

From what we understand, Cristiano Ronaldo told Juventus last night that he no longer wanted to play for the club and had already cleared his wardrobe.

“We don’t know exactly where Cristiano Ronaldo is at the moment because he left the training ground, he didn’t come home, and we assumed he went to the airport but he hasn’t arrived yet.

“For now, what we understand is that he will definitely not play for Juventus anymore, we have to understand whether he will only terminate his contract with Juventus or whether he will go to Manchester City.

“We assume that his agent Jorge Mendes is trying to help reach an agreement between the two clubs but we should not consider that he is going to Manchester City. Of course, that is the first option at the moment.”

Did Ronaldo succeed in Juventus?

Two league titles, the Italian Cup once and the Italian Super Cup. Cristiano Ronaldo collected a lot of trophies during his three full seasons at Juventus. This is before calculating the two awards for the best player in the Italian league and the award for the best scorer.

However, given the Italian team’s poor record in the Champions League during that period, where they managed to make one appearance in the quarter-finals and two exits in the round of 16, the transfer fee was €100 million and annual wages €31 million. He. She?

On the pitch, there may be few complaints about Ronaldo’s personal numbers. While his 21 league goals in his first season was his lowest return since his days at Manchester United, he was still the club’s top scorer and scored 60 in the following two seasons, outperforming anyone else in Italy last year.

But as his playing style evolved, finding the right group of players around him was essential to success in Europe, but Massimiliano Allegri, Maurizio Sarri and inexperienced Andrea Pirlo couldn’t find the answers.

Perhaps the club’s fourth-place finish last season – albeit in the face of improved competition from Inter Milan – reflects the failure over recent years to properly consolidate the squad.

Ronaldo’s move to Juventus was more than just football. There were $60 million in sales for the shirts in the first 24 hours after its unveiling. Six million followers on social media have been added to Juventus’ accounts.

Would Juventus have achieved the results they achieved without him? Very likely. There is a good chance they will continue winning the Serie A without him this season. But it has boosted the Juventus brand all over the world in a big way and in this modern era that has been so valuable. The club will calculate the cost of their spending on it for some time in the future, but they will also enjoy the rewards of the exposure it has given them.

Ronaldo has attracted people who are not affiliated with Juventus to the stadiums. It reminded us of the noise Maradona made in Italian football in the past. Juventus fans still adore him. They don’t want to see him go.

But Ronaldo appears to be trading in the secluded, private, and heavily guarded villa in the hills of Turin this summer. By all accounts, he enjoyed his Italian adventure and Serie A challenges, and while he wasn’t able to inspire them for the ultimate prize, he added more trophies to his prize treasury.

It doesn’t come cheap, but his experience with Juventus proves to the next club he’s investing in that Ronaldo, even at the age of 36, still brings goals, brilliance and global media attention.
