Cristiano Ronaldo sealing a transfer to Juventus this summer would truly be an incredible story and a big step in the right direction for the Italian giants.
In what would be a major statement for the Turin giants, various reports now suggest the Portugal international is in fact on his way from Real Madrid for a deal worth around £88million.
Ronaldo is 9/11 to start the 2018/19 season at Juventus, according to SportsBettingDime: “Juventus is the obvious choice here. The Italian champions have already made a bid, and it’s perhaps an offer too good to turn down. It’s been over two decades since Juve have tasted Champions League glory, and who better than Ronaldo to take them back to the pinnacle of European football?”
Having twice come so close under Massimiliano Allegri, now is surely Juve’s time to finally conquer Europe next season.
Ronaldo is arguably the greatest player in the competition’s history, with his remarkable scoring run in recent seasons helping Real Madrid win four out of the last five finals.
Painfully for Juventus fans, that includes his double in the 2017 final win over the Serie A side, but he now looks set to don black and white next season.
With seven title wins in a row it’s clear Allegri’s side needed to do something bold in the transfer market this summer to stand a chance of becoming major players in the Champions League.
The likes of Manchester City and PSG are only going to keep on getting stronger, but Juventus’ quiet rebuilding this decade has slowly seen them emerge as a true powerhouse of the game again.
The signing of Ronaldo would confirm that, and give them surely their best chance of ending Real Madrid’s dominance of the European Cup.
