Cristiano Ronaldo: Juventus inform Portugal striker he can depart if his calls for are met
Cristiano Ronaldo scored 29 goals in 33 Serie A games last season
Juventus have told Cristiano Ronaldo that they are ready to sell him this summer – but only on their terms.
Portugal’s striker Ronaldo, 36, still has a one-year contract.
His future was under scrutiny and he was dropped from the starting line-up for the club’s opening game in Serie A against Udinese.
Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has spoken to several major European clubs about a possible signing, including Manchester City and Paris St-Germain.
Mendes is believed to have been called to the Juventus training ground for a meeting with senior club members on Thursday, including Vice President Pavel Nedved, Chairman of the Board Maurizio Arrivabene and Sports Director Federico Cherubini.
Mendes was told that all situations were possible for Ronaldo, but that Juventus would not sanction the departure of a player they signed three years ago for £ 99.2million if a transfer fee was not involved.
Ronaldo is known to be frustrated with how his move from Real Madrid to Juventus turned out.
Instead of battling for the Champions League, the Italian giants haven’t made it through the quarter-finals since Ronaldo’s arrival and have been beaten in the last two seasons in the last 16.
Last season they lost their Serie A title – after nine years in a row – to Inter Milan and only made it into the Champions League in the last few games.
