It appears the Portuguese international has made a decision on his future. Amidst various transfer rumors linking Cristiano Ronaldo elsewhere, all signs are currently pointing to the forward remaining with Juventus and seeing out the final year left on his contract. However, is there still time for a twist in the plot?

Cristiano Ronaldo… Will Stay With Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo has been under the limelight as fans continue to speculate where he’ll play next season. Despite the rumors, higher-ups at Juventus have maintained that Ronaldo has made no indications that he wanted to move on. Additionally, trusted journalist Fabrizio Romano tweeted on Saturday:

Juventus seem keen on keeping Ronaldo, and the player hasn’t made any big pushes to leave. Honoring his contract and possibly leaving the year after is a very realistic scenario at the moment.

So that’s the end of the story, right? CR7 will continue banging goals in the black and white, the end? Most likely yes, but the story could still change.

Should PSG lose their star forward Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid this summer, the club will likely heavily pursue Ronaldo. PSG also arguably gives the football legend a better chance at winning his sixth Champions League title.

There’s still about a month until the summer transfer window ends. While Juventus seem most likely to retain Ronaldo’s services, nothing is set in stone as of yet…

I'm currently a sophomore at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I grew up playing soccer and fell in love with the sport. My motivation to continue playing The Beautiful Game started from watching clips of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi on Youtube, and from there it took off. I love staying up to date on the latest news in the footballing world and talking about it with others! I am a passionate Real Madrid fan however, so to Barcelona fans: it's just something we'll have to work around. :)
