Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly decided to stay at Juventus for the 2021-22 campaign, putting an end to speculation about his future.
The 36-year-old, who is entering the final year of his contract, has been linked with a summer exit, with Paris Saint-Germain and former club Manchester United believed to be monitoring his situation.
However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo would like to stay in Turin for at least one more season, before weighing up his options next summer.
Juve are one of the many clubs who have been affected by the coronavirus and are looking for ways to reduce their wages.
Also, Gazzetta dello Sport, reported that Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner pockets £28million-a-year in wages – around £540,000-per-week.
The significance of that is that he earns more in a year than the annual wage bill of FOUR Serie A clubs in the form of Udinese, Hellas Verona, Spezia and Crotone.
Since joining the team from Real Madrid in 2018 Ronaldo has made 133 appearances for Juventus, scoring 101 goals and providing 22 assists.
