Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly been offered to Barcelona, in a shock move to link-up with Ballon d’Or rival Lionel Messi.
Despite a record-breaking campaign in front of goal and another Serie A title, the Juventus superstar’s season ultimately ended in disappointment.
Ronaldo joined the Italian side from Real Madrid back in 2018 with the club seeing him as the man to win them the Champions League.
However, Juventus have gone out in the last 16 in both of the 35-year-old’s campaigns and they could be ready to cash in, with the club desperate to offload his wages and have ‘offered him everywhere, including Barcelona.’
It would be a shocking move considering Ronaldo’s status as a Madrid legend, as well as the chances of him linking up with Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo and Messi have been rivals for the last decade with the pair trading Ballon d’Or win constantly.
The duo has never played in the same team together but they’d strike fear into the heart of any defence.
Juventus suffered a shocking elimination from the Champions League at the hands of Lyon on Friday night and it resulted in Maurizio Sarri’s sacking.
Ronaldo scored two goals as Juventus won 2-1 on the night, but Lyon’s away goal in the first leg saw them go through at 2-2 on aggregate.
The Portuguese international took to Instagram following the news of Sarri’s sacking and posted an emotional message to his fans.
“The 2019/20 season is over for us, much later than usual but yet sooner than we expected,” he began.
“Now it’s time for reflection, time to analyse the ups and downs because critical thinking is the only way to improve.
“A huge club such as Juventus must always think like the best in the world, work as the best in the world so that we can call ourselves one of the best and biggest clubs in the world.
“Winning the Serie A once again in such a difficult year is something that we are very proud of. Personally, scoring 37 goals for Juventus and 11 for the Portuguese National Team is something that makes me face the future with renewed ambition and desire to keep doing better and better each year.
“But the fans demand more from us. They expect more from us. And we have to deliver, we must live up to the highest expectations.
“May this short vacation break allow us all to make the best decisions for the future and come back stronger and more committed than ever.
