Juventus sifting its options after Ronaldo’s departure


According to press reports, the Italian club Juventus has begun to move to sign a new striker during the current summer transfer period, in anticipation of the departure of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo from the “Bianconeri”.

Ronaldo’s contract, 36, will expire in the summer of 2022, but press reports recently linked his name to a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

And the Italian newspaper, “La Gazzetta dello Sport”, said that Cristiano’s signals to leave are pushing the club to work on more than one front, as Federico Cherubini, the new head of technical management in Juventus, is moving to sign an alternative striker for the Portuguese star.

The newspaper added that the renewal of the loan of Spanish striker, Alvaro Morata, from Atletico Madrid is certain, whether Ronaldo remains or leaves.

And if Ronaldo chooses to go to Paris, the Argentine Mauro Icardi, the Paris Saint-Germain striker, will be the most appropriate option, especially since Juventus has been watching him for several years.

The “Bianconeri” is also watching the Brazilian player Gabriel Jesus, the Manchester City striker, as one of the possible targets, especially since the Brazilian is not living his best periods under the leadership of the Spanish coach, Pep Guardiola.

It is noteworthy that Ronaldo is now preparing with his country for the European Football Championship “Euro 2020”, which was postponed from last year, which will start on Friday, June 11.
