Cristiano Ronaldo

is entering the last 12 months of his deal at

Juventus

and will be 37 by the time that agreement comes to a close, however, he has not shown any sign of slowing down, according to

Goal

.

According to CEO

Federico Cherubini

, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has not given any signal regarding his intention of leaving the club.

Cherubini has told reporters when quizzed on the speculation surrounding Ronaldo:

"There has been no signal from Ronaldo.

"Especially the rumors that there should be a transfer and there’s no sign from Juventus in this regard.

"Last season he scored 36 goals in 44 games, the numbers don’t always say everything but hide many truths, we are happy that Ronaldo will join the team as soon as he has finished his holidays."

When he was asked if he expects Ronaldo to return for 2021/22, he answered:

"I don’t have the crystal ball, but right now there are no signals regarding a possible transfer.”

Juventus are also looking for fresh faces to bring alongside Ronaldo and although it is not going to be the busiest of summers for them, Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli is among those that the Bianconeri have their eye on.

Cherubini also talked about transfer plans, with Massimiliano Allegri back again for the second time as Juventus manager:

"We arrive from a few seasons where we have made important and targeted investments that put us in a position to reach the beginning of the season with a competitive team.

"We may not even carry out a transfer market, because we believe we have a competitive team, and our idea is our coach.

"Of course, in a logic of sharing strategies and objectives, we know that something can be improved but it doesn’t mean that this will happen.

"We have a plan for the progressive strengthening of the team over the years and above all to wait for those investments made in recent years, especially in the last two years with the rejuvenation of the squad.

"We are convinced that we already have ample room for growth with the technical assets at our disposal.

"It will not be a market in which we will be very active, but we will be vigilant and ready to seize opportunities with technical and economic parameters in line with our plan."
