Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes spoke about the rumors saying that the Portuguese star will leave Real Madrid to join Juventus this summer.

“If it happens, it will be a new chapter and a new challenge in his brilliant career,” Mendes said to Portuguese paper Record. “If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid, he will remain eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the staff without exception, as well as the Madrid fans throughout the world,” he added.

As you can see, Mendes admits that Ronaldo’s departure might happen, although he did not want to confirm the move just yet.

Apparently, Juventus will pay €100 million to sign Cristiano Ronaldo to a €30 million/year contract on a four-year deal, although the latest reports suggest that Juventus are trying to find the way to complete the move as Ronaldo’s projected salary could break their current budget.

Either way, Ronaldo seems determined to leave Real Madrid this summer.
