Juventus are working on finding a new club for Cristiano Ronaldo during this summer’s transfer window, according to a sensational report. 

Ronaldo, who is the all-time international and Champions League record goalscorer, scored an impressive 29 goals in 33 league games for Juventus last season, as well as winning the Euro 2020 Golden Boot with five goals.

But with the Portuguese phenomenon edging closer to the age of 37, the Serie A giants are said to be keen on offloading him in a desperate bid to get him off their wage bill.

That’s according to Italian journalist Paulo Condo, anyway, who claims the Old Lady and Ronaldo have been working to find a suitable move over the last few months. 

“Outside the official narrative, which obeys an obvious etiquette, it is clear to everyone that Juventus and Ronaldo have been waiting for a buyer able to free them from their respective constraints,” Condo wrote in Italian publication La Repubblica.

“It follows that Juve scores more or less always the same goals, whoever their main striker is since they always choose them well.”

Condo also claims that Juventus would have signed Italian shot stopper Gigio Donnarumma from AC Milan this summer - had they offloaded Ronaldo first.

“Only that Cristiano pays him four times the others, thus removing ammunition from the rest of the departments,” Condo added.

“In another budget situation, Juve would never have let Donnarumma finish at Paris Saint-Germain.”

A number of clubs this summer have struggled to offload players, with many working with stricter budgets, while Premier League clubs appear to be least affected by such financial issues.

With that said, could United have what it takes to entice Ronaldo back to Old Trafford to where it all began? Just imagine.
