Real Madrid set to accept Juventus' €100m for Cristiano Ronaldo
Serie A champions Juventus optimistic of hijacking Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
Cristiano Ronaldo is currently earning £18.5m-a-year at the Bernabeu and the Portuguese captain is ready to accept Juventus' £26.5million-a-year contract, which will see him playing active football till the age of 37.
The Turin giants are now preparing on a transfer-fee package to entice Real Madrid. Despite having a €1bn, Cristiano Ronaldo has a separate agreement in his Real Madrid contract that allows him to leave the club if the offer is right.
Juventus valuation of the World footballer of the year is around €100m (£88m) due to his age.
There have been reports that suggest that the former Manchester United star
Juventus are confident that Cristiano Ronaldo will be their player this summer as the Portuguese superstar is not happy at the Bernabeu and they already have an agreement with him.
Some sources are reporting that the deal is 95 percent complete.
Though Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is looking to milk as much money from this situation, the super-agent might decide to wait to see if former club Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain will join the race to land his biggest client.
Ronaldo's statement after Real Madrid's 3-1 Champions League final win over Liverpool in May hinted that he might leave the Spanish giants this summer.
He said: “It was very nice to be at Real Madrid. In the coming days, I will give a response to the fans, who have always been at my side.”
He later tried to withdraw the statement, but Juventus were already keen to work on a deal for him which would be one of the greatest transfer swoop in football history.
Cristiano Ronaldo is not happy due to the fact that he is learning less than Lionel Messi and Neymar respectively.
His last contract, signed in 2016, made him the highest paid player in the world but Messi and Neymar overtook him after the Brazilian star signed for PSG from Barcelona for a world record fee of £200m last summer.
