Coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo is staying at Juventus. The move to Real Madrid was just a rumor, the Portuguese forward gave the message to Allegri.
With the new season of Serie A looming, there were rumors in the transfer market that Ronaldo was leaving Juventus for the old club Real Madrid. However, Ronaldo did not let the matter go too far. The information he clearly conveyed through social media is not accurate at all. “I want to make this clear to everyone,” Allegri said. Ronaldo himself told me he was staying at Juventus. In practice he has always worked very hard and this time he was no exception. I have read rumors about him in the media, but he himself has never shown interest in leaving Juventus. ‘
The Portuguese forward, who scored 29 goals in Serie A last season in the last practice match against the club’s youth team on Thursday, was not in the squad. But Allegri said he was fully prepared to play. The four-year contract with Juventus is coming to an end this year.
Earlier, Ronaldo wrote on Instagram, ‘The story has been made about my move to Real Madrid. News and stories about my going to several clubs in different leagues of the world have been written many times before. But no one tried to find out the real truth. ‘
Since coming to Juventus from Real Madrid in 2016, Ronaldo has won two Serie A and one Italian Cup title. However, the dream of winning the European Championship for Juventus is still elusive. Allegri is back at Juventus after a two-year absence following the failure of Andre Pirlo as coach. Under Pirlo, the Turin giants have lost the club title for the first time since 2012.
Allegri, who has won five Serie A titles for Juventus since 2015-19, said: “Like every year, we have to win all the competitions. I will try to move forward step by step.
