Cristiano Ronaldo desires to leave Juventus, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport: 'They've broken up, but they're still together.'
As per the report, the Portuguese has tasked his agent Jorge Mendes with finding him a new club for the upcoming season.
Real Madrid Chairman Florentino Perez has ruled out a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, but the 36-year-old's deal with the club laps in June 2022 and
remains a possibility for him.
However, suppose Ronaldo wishes to leave Juventus. In that case, he will have to reduce his €31 million annual wage, and a transfer outside of Italy will cause him to pay more taxes on sponsorship revenue.
In reality, under the so-called "Development decree," he is only required to pay €100,000 in taxes on any foreign income.
Ronaldo's mood has reportedly improved following Juventus'Champions League
relegation at the hands of Porto in March.
With the exception of Carlo Pinsoglio, Ronaldo has mostly avoided hanging out with his teammates off the field and has had more space during training sessions than his teammates.
The Portuguese star has failed to score in the last threeSerie A
matches and seemed selfless in Juventus' 1-1 draw against Fiorentina last weekend.
'It's almost like Juventus and Ronaldo have broken up but are still living together,' drafted La Gazzetta dello Sport.
