Ronaldo was always known to be a very expressive player. He wants to give his best when he is on the pitch in every game that he plays. He doesn’t hide his excitement or anger, a quality that makes him a natural leader wherever he goes. Therefore, it is not a surprise that Ronaldo is frustrated at Juventus.
The 36-year old has been impressive this season scoring 32 goals in 39 games this season. Not to mention that he scored 2 of them immediately after recovering from COVID. However Juve’s topsy-turvy season has meant that it would be the first time that they haven’t won the Scudetto since 2012.
The Bianconeri were knocked out by Porto in the Round of 16 in the Champions League. They lost to Napoli on penalties in the Coppa Italia finals. They are 4th in Serie A, 13 points behind runaway leaders Inter Milan with 5 games left. Not up to their mark.
Ronaldo looking for a move away from Juventus
Before the winter transfer window, there were reports that linked Ronaldo to move back to Manchester United. With Messi to Manchester City bursting through the news then, everyone speculated that he would look forward to the move. However, nothing substantial took place.
Later on, clubs like PSG and Real Madrid joined the race but the news died out soon. Sporting Lisbon too stated that they wanted to get the goal-machine back to his boyhood club. However, they admitted that the deal was far off and they did not have the finances to pursue it.
The situation in Turin
Ronaldo has not scored since April 7 and has another year left on his contract. Reports claim that he is becoming increasingly ‘nervous, irritable and very distant from his teammates’. This tension has recently been affecting his form and he seems to be very keen on securing a move this summer.
Manchester United are top contenders for the Portuguese. He may stay in Juventus or may leave but one thing is always certain- Ronaldo will not stop scoring and will give his best.
