Former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo has officially confirmed his exit from Juventus as communicating the same to his fellow teammates.
The news comes at a time when his agent Jorge Mendes made contact with Manchester City over his exit and a possible return to Premier League football.
Plans are already underway in Juventus to find his replacement before the closure of the transfer market on 31st August 2021.

“Cristiano Ronaldo also informed his Juventus teammates that he wants to leave. Jorge Mendes will be in direct contact with Man City today to discuss Ronaldo’s salary – it won’t be €31m net per season as the current one. Juventus are waiting for Manchester City’s official bid.” Said Fabrizio Romano.
The Italians have already contacted Moise Kean as Cristiano’s replacement and are on the verge of initiating talks with Everton in the coming days.
“Juventus are in contact with Everton for Moise Kean, he’s one of the names in the list. Mino Raiola is taking over the negotiations – Juve will soon decide new strikers plan after Ronaldo’s decision. PSG only made a loan bid for Kean in June – turned down by Everton.” Said Fabrizio.
Currently, the main challenge in Cristiano’s transfer is his huge wage bill that Manchester City look like the perfect solution at the moment. They will however look into the financial benefits before making a final decision.
Manchester City will also have to let go of some key players including Raheem Stirling and already plans are underway to find a suitable club for the England forward. Pep Guardiola’s side is reluctant to let go of Gabriel Jesus who is wanted by Juventus.
