Cristiano Ronaldo not inclined to stay at Juventus after deal ends due to ‘unromantic’ relationship with club

CRISTIANO RONALDO is unlikely to enjoy the twilight of his career at Juventus, according to reports.

The Portuguese superstar, 35, believes he can still play at the very top level for another five years.

Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus when his contract expires

His contract with the Serie A champions expires in 2022 meaning he will still have at least three years at a top European club.

But TuttoSport have poured doubt on whether Ronaldo will see out his contract at Juventus because he ‘doesn’t have a romantic relationship’ with the Old Lady.

They have ruled out a big money move to China or America because Ronaldo still wants to challenge for major trophies.

Paris Saint-Germain remain an option, especially if and when Neymar and Kylian Mbappe leave the club.

Ronaldo, who has the physicality of a man ten years his junior, revealed it will be a psychological decision when he retires from football.

He told Marca: “Much will depend on what I feel, on my motivation.

“Physically it will never be a problem.

“I am treating myself well and I think can play safely up to 40 years.

It was Ronaldo's first match for the Old Lady since September 27 after he contracted coronavirus
Cristiano Ronaldo believes he can continue playing until he’s 40

“The most important factor, honestly, will be more psychological – that will be the one that makes the difference.

“In any case, everything has a beginning and an end. I won’t last a lifetime but I still feel strong enough to continue winning.

“I will stop if I have no incentives.”
