Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be leaving Juventus this summer, but according to a reputable journalist, the Portuguese superstar has only one offer on the table.
In other news, Sassuolo’s CEO has given an update on Manuel Locatelli’s future, revealing that Juventus has began talks to sign the midfielder.
Let’s take a look at the transfer rumors surrounding Juventus on July 8, 2021, with all of that in mind.
PSG the only possible destination for Cristiano Ronaldo
Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from Juventus this summer, as the Serie A giants appear to be planning a change for the 2021-22 season. Manchester United and Real Madrid have both expressed interest in signing the attacker.
However, according to Gianluca di Marzio, Cristiano Ronaldo is just in talks with PSG about a summer transfer.
According to Sky Sports Italia, the Italian journalist said:
“Cristiano Ronaldo’s sole option is to join Paris Saint-Germain, with whom he has had ongoing but insufficient contact. He will remain in black and white till his contract expires in 2022 if he does not take off.”
Juventus fall behind in race for Manuel Locatelli
Manuel Locatelli is poised to leave Sassuolo this summer, according to Giovanni Carnevali, the club’s CEO.
The midfielder has been extensively linked with a move to Juventus. According to Carnevali, though, a foreign team is in advanced talks to sign the player. In a press conference, the Italian said:
“We are taking advantage of the National Team’s current situation. We’ll talk about Locatelli after the European Championship is over; we want to give him time to recover before Sunday. We’ve received some significant bids for Locatelli, one of which is currently in the works.”
“We spoke with Juve and will meet again next week, but everything will be examined. Today’s Italian market is in a lot of trouble; offers are coming in from all over the world, and it’s apparent that we have players that want to play for major clubs.”
Arsenal, another Premier League team, is allegedly in talks to recruit Manuel Locatelli this summer.
Sassuolo CEO Carnevali to Sky: “We’re in talks for Locatelli with one club from abroad… and it’s really advanced. We’re gonna meet with Juventus in the next days, but there are no negotiations yet with Juve as Italian clubs are in difficult financial situation”. 🇮🇹 #AFC #Juve— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 8, 2021
