The atmosphere for Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus is not the best, with personal dissatisfaction with the team’s performance and also complaints from teammates for some privileges. But, despite the problems and the concrete possibility of the Old Lady being left out of the next Champions League, the star should remain at the club for the next season. That’s what the newspaper “La Gazzetta Dello Sport” says.
The daily says that “all the signs” suggest that Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to defend Juventus, fulfilling his last year of contract. And he cites as main reasons the high salary of the 36-year-old, who would hardly get the same figures elsewhere; tax benefits received on transfer to Series A; and the cooling of the interest of other European giants, such as Real Madrid, Manchester United and PSG.
The “Gazzetta” highlights that Cristiano is experiencing a “disconnection within the group”, with some companions dissatisfied with his privileges. And that, in this scenario, the fact of having failed in the quest to seek another European title, without even getting close to a final, would be enough for “CR7’s black and white castle to collapse”. However, he stresses that the player himself has begun to show in recent games that he must seek redemption in Italian football.
Despite being eliminated in the round of 16 of the Champions League and losing the Italian title for the first time since arriving in the country, Cristiano Ronaldo is the top scorer in Serie A, with 28 goals so far. And he also reached 100 goals scored by Juve in just three seasons.
