There is a Juventus with Ronaldo and another Juventus without him.
At least that’s the way it is Transfer market describes the importance of Portuguese in the club’s transfer strategy for the summer.
The recent disappointing elimination of the Bianconeri in the Champions League has led to some question marks related to the future of the forward at the club.
The 36-year-old has been blamed by a section of fans, as well as some analysts, for his role in the European release.
Therefore, CR7 has been linked to a resounding return to Real Madid in recent days, especially by the Spanish media.
Therefore, the report believes Juventus already have two aligned strategies, depending on whether Ronaldo should stay or not.
If the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or remained in Turin, his huge salary (31 million euros net) would prevent the management of the Old Lady from chasing another big gain in attack.
The source also expects Alvaro Morata’s loan spell to be extended for another season, which would cost the club an additional € 10m fee.
In this case, Olympique Marseille’s Arkadiusz Milik would be the lead candidate.
The Polish striker has long been a transfer target for Fabio Paratici and company, and would be willing to accept a relatively reasonable salary – at least according to the source.
On the other hand, if Ronaldo ended up leaving Juventus, then the club would be able to seek more glamorous goals.
The three names mentioned in the report are PSG duo Mauro Icardi and Moise Kean (who is actually a Juventus youth product) and Sergio Aguero who could become a free agent if he didn’t sign a contract extension with Manchester City.
