Since arriving in 2018, Cristiano Ronaldo has won two Serie A titles with the Bianconeri, but has seen Andrea Pirlo’s side fail this season. Champions League glory has also proved elusive for a man who has conquered the continent five times in the past.
The failure in Europe has contributed to rumors that Cristiano Ronaldo could leave this summer, as he nears the final 12 months of his contract at Juventus Turin. He gave no indication of his future, however, placing full emphasis on the present. Cristiano Ronaldo, who could still win the Italian Cup in 2021, still scored 99 goals for Juve in 129 appearances in all competitions. Statistics in its image: impressive.
