Juventus reportedly offered Ronaldo to Barcelona

Italian side, Juventus have reportedly offered a “fed up” Cristiano Ronaldo to Spanish side, Barcelona and may end up playing alongside arch rival, Messi.

According to Italian and Spanish reports, Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘fed up’ with life at Juventus, and is angry with how the club exited the UEFA champions league this season.

C.Ronaldo still wishes to win the UEFA champions league before retirement comes knocking and this has seemed impossible since joining Juve two years ago.

Renowned Spanish journalist, Guillem Balague has revealed Juventus have offered Ronaldo to clubs including Barcelona as they aim to balance their financial books due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ronaldo has been at Juventus since 2018 after he joined the Italian side from Real Madrid.

In the last two seasons Juventus have been eliminated in the last 16 of the Champions League. This year they were defeated by French side Lyon.

According to Balague, Juventus are desperate to get rid of Ronaldo’s excessive wages and are offering him to a host of clubs.

Balague told BBC Radio Five Live on Thursday August 13;

“The reason why Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked to PSG is not so much that PSG are thinking of getting him, it is because Jorge Mendes has been given instructions to find a team for Ronaldo.

“We’ve seen this in the last six months, he was linked to Real Madrid.
“They said no chance, he’s not coming back.
“And there’s been talks about the MLS because Juventus want to get rid of that wage.

“It is as drastic as that. He’s been offered everywhere, including Barcelona.”

“I’m not sure if they can get rid of him easily [because] with the kind of money he still earns – 23million euros net – that he was earning at Real Madrid and I think he equalled those wages when he went to Juventus.

“Who is going to pay that kind of money?”, he rhetorically asked.

Juventus offer Ronaldo to Barcelona

If Ronaldo ends up playing alongside his long-term arch rival, Lionel Messi at Barcelona, it would arguably become one of the biggest transfers of all time.
