Well, that came quicker than we all expected, with reports already linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a Juventus exit at the end of next season.
Ronaldo and Juventus were erased from the European stages for the rest of the campaign, as the Old Lady’s succumbed to a 2-1 loss to Dutch side Ajax on Tuesday.
The consequences of failing to secure the club’s primary target [The Champions League] could very well be a lot more significant than expected, as reports from La Repubblica now claims that Ronaldo’s future at the club is in doubt and he could leave Juventus next year.
The arrival of the Portuguese striker presented the Italian side with their best chance to lift the European SilverWare, having seen him single-handedly lead Real Madrid through the turf for several years now.
However, while Cristiano Ronaldo has been Juventus stand out player this season, the Champions League remains a goal, and would have to wait for yet another year.
Whether or not Cristiano Ronaldo is part of that squad. We are yet to confirm.
For now, Ronaldo is contracted to Juventus until 2022, with the current season having seen him produce 26 goals and 12 assists in his 38 appearances so far.
