Cristiano Ronaldo has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus over the last few weeks.
And former Los Blancos star Michel Salgado has discussed the possibility of Real Madrid‘s main man heading towards the exit door.
Hear what he had to say as Ronaldo gets closer to a move to Italy.
The 33-year-old Real Madrid legend cast doubt over his Los Blancos future following the Whites’ Champions League final victory over Liverpool in May while Zinedine Zidane‘s departure shortly after that only served to increase speculation he could leave the Bernabeu.
Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is reportedly set to meet Madrid president Florentino Perez on Tuesday for talks amid a bid from the Old Lady in the region of €99m for his services.
Discussions between the two parties are likely to prove pivotal given Ronaldo is thought to be on the brink of joining the Serie A side.
The 33-year-old’s Real Madrid future has been the subject of intense speculation following May’s Champions League final win over Liverpool, in which Ronaldo hinted post-match that he could leave the club.
Zinedine Zidane‘s departure as boss and Julen Loptegui’s arrival has only served to increase rumours Ronaldo might bring his glorious Bernabeu career to an end, while Juventus have apparently weighed in with a huge bid for his services.
In this case, an unnamed CSL club has offered Ronaldo those huge terms, which would see the Whites legend collect a cool €100 million annually on a two-year contract.
On top of that personal offer to the player himself, a huge transfer fee would also be needed to prise him away from Madrid.
Ronaldo has been quiet on social media since Portugal’s second round World Cup exit to France.
