The return of Massimiliano Allegri to Juventus has been made official, and that is news that did not really suit Cristiano Ronaldo. Under the baton of the man who once brought the Old Lady five tied championship titles, Ronaldo played the first, at the same time the most ineffective season since arriving in Turin.
The Portuguese has another year of contract with Juve, his fate has been speculated about for months, but the fact is that Allegri's new mandate is a step backwards towards Ronaldo's stay in the north of Italy. In the 2018/19 competition, when Allegri led the Bianconeri, Ronaldo scored 28 goals in all competitions, less than when Maurizio Sari (37 goals) and Andrea Pirlo (36 goals) sat on the bench.
He did not cultivate ideal relations with them either, but the Italian Gazzetta writes that the search for a new club has begun. The agent of the 36-year-old offensive player, Jorge Mendes, entered into talks with Paris Saint-Germain, one of the two clubs that can afford the services of his protégé.
United and PSG
The second is Manchester United, where Ronaldo began to gain a reputation as one of the best football players in the world in the first decade of this century. The Red Devils would like to see Ronaldo at Old Trafford, but only in the case if he reduces his appetites, that is, agrees to a large salary reduction of the current 31,000,000 euros net.
Florentino Perez is not ready to open the door for him to return to the Royal Club. Paris seems to be the most realistic option, especially if Kylian Mbappe, who is entering the last year of his contract, decides to leave Prince's Park.
During that time, according to the Roman La Stampa, Ronaldo was contacted by former coach Jose Mourinho to get acquainted with his plans for the continuation of his career. The Portuguese coach would like to play on the card of tax benefits for foreign citizens that Ronaldo would have in case he stays in Italy, but it seems completely unrealistic that Roma can satisfy financial, and especially his competitive appetites.
Ronaldo ended the 2020/21 competition as Capocanoniere, scoring 29 goals in Serie A, and for the Old Lady, he reached the number of 101 goals and 22 goals scored in 133 games. He took two state championship titles, the Italian Cup and Super Cup, but he is also a member of the team that failed to extend its nine-year dominance at the Italy. Leaving Turin seems much more realistic than staying.
