Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave Juventus and Tottenham are shock contenders for his signature. Ronaldo’s future at Juventus has been shrouded in mystery this summer amid reports Juventus will not offer him an extension.
With just 12 months left on his contract, a decision will need to be made on his future in the very near future.
There have been increased reports linking Ronaldo with a move away from Turin in recent weeks.
Although, the Portugal international played down any suggestion he could be set to return to Real Madrid in a strongly-worded statement on Instagram.
But his agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly been sounding out offers from elsewhere with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Manchester United all touted as potential destinations.

The 36-year-old is supposedly available for just £25million, although that doesn’t include his astronomical wages.
Any interested club would not only have to match Ronaldo’s ambition, but also meet his huge wage demands.
Tottenham aren’t competing in the Champions League this season after failing to finish inside the top four.
But that seemingly hasn’t ruled them out of a shock move for Ronaldo in the final few days of the transfer window.
According to Sport Italia’s Michele Criscitiello, Ronaldo’s time at Juventus is over and Tottenham are mentioned as possible contenders for his signature.
“Since he came back we have said it, there is a clear will on the part of #Allegri not wanting to start again with #Ronaldo and viceversa,” he said.
“The cycle of CR7 in black and white is over, confirmation has arrived in Udine.
“Even the #Tottenham [is a] possible destination.”
It seems unlikely that Ronaldo would make the switch to north London given Tottenham’s current situation.
Spurs are competing in the inaugural Europa Conference League and lost to Pacos de Ferreira earlier this week.
Harry Kane’s future also has to be resolved at Tottenham and, even if the striker does leave, they’re unlikely to use all that cash on one blockbuster signing like Ronaldo.
