Juventus’ million-dollar debt to Cristiano Ronaldo could change the striker’s future

Ronaldo may have found a way out of his Red Devil nightmare

 

If you’ve been keeping up with the soccer world, then you know that Cristiano Ronaldo has been in the news a lot lately. The superstar forward moved from Juventus to  Manchester United a year ago. But it seems like Juventus may have gotten themselves into a bit of trouble with the legendary Portuguese striker. According to reports, the Italian club allegedly owes Ronaldo 17 million dollars.

This is just enough money for him to pay for an early Manchester United departure, should he so choose. While we don’t know for sure what will happen, one thing is certain: Ronaldo is a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the field. While it remains to be seen whether there is any truth to these rumors, it is clear that Ronaldo’s future at Manchester United is far from certain.

The club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League this season as his lack of minutes on the field due to Erik ten Hag’s preference will likely impact his decision. If Ronaldo does decide to leave Manchester United, it would be a huge blow to the club. He has been a key player for them since rejoining in 2021, scoring 27 goals in 51 appearances. His departure would also leave a massive hole in their attacking line-up, which would be difficult to replace given his status as one of the world’s best players.

How this affects Ronaldo’s future with Manchester United

The latest rumors linking him with a move away from Manchester United have been sparked by reports that Juventus owe him 17 million dollars – just enough money for him to pay for an early departure from Old Trafford according to The Sun. That money was allegedly promised to the star due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Will Ronaldo be able to secure a move away from Man Utd?  Only time will tell.

‘I’ve said enough about it’ – Ten Hag tired of talking about ‘important squad player’ Ronaldo

 

WHAT HAPPENED? Ten Hag has insisted once again that Ronaldo remains an important squad player but says he is getting tired of talking about him. The Portugal international scored on his return to the starting XI against FC Sheriff in the Europa League last time out. The match was the forward’s first appearance since being dropped by Ten Hag for leaving Man Utd’s win over Tottenham before the final whistle.

WHAT THEY SAID: “I’ve said enough about it. I’ve given enough explanation. We are happy he is there, He is an important squad player and he is our goalscorer,” he told Sky Sports. “[On Thursday] he scored and I’m really happy with that because I know goalscorers need that every time. Hopefully he is building up and can be even more important.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ronaldo’s future at Man Utd remains uncertain despite Ten Hag’s words. The 37-year-old is no longer a guaranteed starter at Old Trafford and the Red Devils’ best performances this season have come without the forward in the side. Ten Hag has said he does not want to sell Ronaldo in January but the forward has still been tipped to leave if he continues to struggle for game time.
