Cristiano Ronaldo Teases His Future Plans After He Leaves Juventus

Juventus might not be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final club after hinting that he could return to one of his former teams.

The 33-year-old Portuguese footballer has relished the opportunity to move to Italy and experience a fresh challenge in Serie A.

When the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star was asked about his future, he could not rule out the possibility of heading back to Portugal for one more stint with Sporting CP.

“Will I return to Sporting like Nani? In football you never know,” he told Fox Sports (via CalcioMercato).

It might be a while before that happens, especially as Ronaldo signed a four-year deal when he arrived at Juventus last summer.

Ronaldo has made 19 appearances for the Old Lady this season and scored 14 times.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri recently praised his professionalism and his determination.

“He is not any different from what I imagined,” he told the Record.

“I knew he was a great professional with a competitive spirit that has already helped everybody to improve.

“He wants to be the best one every day and that’s an important value that helps us all. I am not surprised, I’d rather say that it’s great to see him play because he is a different kind of player.

“Ronaldo’s biggest quality is that he is always focused, both in game and during trainings.

“He’s always [in] the same habit also when he plays just one ball during games. I only want one thing from him: goals. It’s what he knows better, Cristiano is an example for everybody.

“The Serie A title is a natural objective for Juventus, as for the Champions League you have to be lucky. Ronaldo must be a joy for Juventus and for Italian football.”

While he finished the 2018 calendar year as the top scorer for Los Blancos and finished second highest for Juve, he has already shown that he is more than a poacher for the reigning Serie A champions.
