Why is Cristiano Ronaldo being scrutinized by Juventus?
It is common knowledge that Ronaldo’s performances will always be scrutinized more closely. His big salary at Juventus, on the other hand, has added to the pressure. As a result, despite scoring at an incredible pace during the last three seasons, numerous fans and analysts have labeled his time at Juventus a failure.
Cristiano Ronaldo is under contract with Juventus until the end of the 2021/22 season. As of now, no decision has been taken about the player’s future with the club.
Last season, the Bianconeri were delivered a brutal reality check as they failed to win Serie A for the first time in a decade. The club’s top management is rumored to be ready to reorganize their team ahead of the upcoming season.
Part of that change could have a financial impact on Ronaldo’s position at the club. His colossal pay stubs eat up a sizable portion of Juventus’ compensation bill. With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc on finances, the financial implications of having Ronaldo on board are being considered. This has prompted Juventus to scrutinize the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
What is Cristiano Ronaldo’s ambition?
On the other hand, according to sources, CR7 is dissatisfied with his current club, Juventus. The Portuguese superstar has been irritated by constant speculations that the club wants to part ways with him, as well as unending blame for every single defeat and questions about his devotion to the team.
He is also thought to be intent on finding a fresh option for himself by leaving Juventus in the coming weeks.
What did Juventus have to say?
Juventus vicepresident Pavel Nedved to DAZN: “No one from Cristiano Ronaldo told us that he wants to leave, I expect him with us. We wait for him to come back from holidays on July 25”. 🇵🇹 #Ronaldo #Juventus
“Locatelli? We’ll have time to talk about it with Sassuolo”. 🇮🇹
