Press reports contradict the future of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, in support of his stay with his current Juventus team, and the likelihood of his departure, in light of speculation he would return to his former team Manchester United.
The 35-year-old Portuguese star joined Juventus, signaling his departure from Real Madrid in the summer of 2018, for around $ 120 million.
The Italian press has confirmed that Ronaldo will remain at Juventus until the end of his contract in 2023, but reports in most European newspapers – including the British and the Spanish – indicated the desire for Madeira’s rocket to leave Turin.
Among the most important information suggesting Ronaldo’s departure is an article in the British newspaper “The Sun”, which indicated that the return of the Don to his former team, Manchester United, is an existing possibility.
The report said that Juventus, due to its current financial problems caused by the epidemic of the coronavirus, could not cover Ronaldo’s huge salary, which amounts to 630 thousand dollars per week.
On the other hand, Manchester United is considered one of the richest and most European clubs in terms of financial stability, even if it is far from the competition for the titles, because of its many fans in Grande -Brittany and its high income from sponsorship contracts, television programs, and advertisements, in addition to many other sources.
Ronaldo spent six years at Old Trafford, before leaving for Real Madrid in 2009, after writing his name as one of the club’s best players.
Reports of Ronaldo’s return to the “Red Devils” coincide with what Manchester United CEO Ed Woodward said that his team’s next transition period is unlikely to be “normal”.
The drop in the market value of the Portuguese star due to his advanced age may be one of the factors behind the return to the Premier League, as it is currently valued at $ 65 million, ranking 46th according to the “Transfer Market” website. “, which is the biggest drop for the star crowned with the Golden Ball five times.

Spanish reports have also mentioned that Ronaldo’s dream was to return to Real Madrid, but that dream has been digested by the change in club policies, in search of stars who are building the future of the struggling team since the last season, a point in favor of Ronaldo to continue his career with Juventus, or the transition to Manchester, as reported by British reports.
And the coming weeks will show more specific reports, after Ronaldo’s return to Italy, where he is still in his hometown of Madeira, Portugal, since the start of the coronavirus epidemic, especially since he remained silent during this period, and he has not talked about his future in football so far.
