Cristiano Ronaldo up for a exit from Turin


Turin: Cristiano Ronaldo has finally determined to leave Juventus and have reportedly asked the club to sell him immediately.

Ronaldo’s discontent with former manager of Juventus, Andrea Pirlo benching him in matches that could have gone other way, making Juventus drop points and eventually losing out on the league spiked the rumours of Ronaldo’s departure. They had even narrowly qualified for Champions League this season adding to the worry.

Although Ronaldo put a full stop to all the rumours surrounding his move to Manchester United or to Lisbon Sporting CP. Ex Juventus Chairman ‘s comments on how signing him was a mistake and the attack of the club is more efficient without him, has triggered the Talisman to finalise the move. With such a short time Manchester City seems to be the destination of the Portuguese skipper.

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes is said to be in direct contacts with Manchester City working out a deal for his client. As the club is preparing for a outgoing bid, Raheem Sterling might also be included in the deal with €30M. Although Juventus wanted Gabriel Jesus, but City boss Pep Guardiola is not ready to let him go.

Ronaldo came into prominence from Manchester United, the arch rivals of City. He had played for the Red Devils from 2003 to 2009 under Sir Alex Ferguson before moving to Real Madrid. The former United star had often expressed his disinterest in signing up for Manchester City, hence his decision came as a shock to many and has garnered a lot of criticism.

While on the other hand, if the deal goes through, Pep would become the only coach to have trained both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo under his wing. With the announcement of UEFA Champions League groups on Thursday, Group A consisting both Manchester City and Parish Saint-Germain can see Messi and Ronaldo on field against each other stirring up a lot of nostalgia.
