Juventus may sell Ronaldo

Juventus from Turin are considering an option with the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo as a measure to avoid financial crisis.

Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Juventus in the summer of 2018. In 18 months he managed to win Scudetto and the Italian Super Cup and also became the footballer of the year in the country. The sum of the Portuguese’s transfer from Real Madrid is 112 million euros, which are already more than paid off thanks to the investments of companies due to the media persona of the striker.

Now, the Old Signora are seriously considering selling the Portuguese because of the impending threat of the financial crisis. The club is considering several scenarios. The first is the sale of Ronaldo to one of the foreign clubs, because now the cost of the 35-year-old striker is about 70 million euros.

Other options are related to the continuation of Ronaldo in the club. The club can offer him a one-year contract with salary reduction or he will remain until 2022 with the salary that is written in his current contract.

According to the latest news, Cristiano met with Juventus senators Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon. They persuaded the Portuguese to make concessions in financial matters at 3.8 million euros a year. The Old Signora also agreed with other players regarding the reduction of their salaries,

“The club reached an agreement with the players and the coaching staff regarding their compensation for the remainder of this season.

The agreement provides for a reduction in compensation equal to the monthly payments for March, April, May and June 2020. In the coming weeks, an agreement with the players and the coach will be drawn up as required by the rules. The economic and financial consequences of the agreement are positive - saving about 90 million euros in the fiscal year 2019/2020.”

As one can see, the clubs are slowly adapting to the impending threats of financial destabilization. At the same time, football players have a hard time. They face a choice. If the player agrees to the new conditions, this will be taken for granted. If he insists on the terms of the current contract, the fans and the club can arrange terrible conditions for the football player, which can put on him the stigma of a greedy and selfish person. At present, the pendulum of the attitude towards the player can swing faster than before.
