The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is believed to be on the brink of leaving Real Madrid
Following his lifting of the Champions League trophy at the end of last season, Ronaldo seemed to hint that his time at the Bernabeu was up.
He has very recently been linked with a switch to the Turin-based side, while it’s also being reported that Los Blancos have accepted a £100m offer for their superstar.
Mendes has given his take on the speculation. And without confirming anything, his hypothetical syntax further hints a move is on the cards.
In this precise moment, it is more likely that Cristiano will move to Juventus than staying at Real Madrid

Juventus are expected to part with the aforementioned £100m sum to get the deal over the line. And, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Serie A champions are looking to agree a four-year deal worth £7.5m per year with the Portuguese superstar.
#Marotta sempre negli uffici milanesi della @juventusfc, in attesa che #Mendes confermi definitivamente la cifra d’uscita (i 100 mil) di @Cristiano e i termini di pagamento al @realmadrid. A 30 milioni (netti) per 4 anni, d’ingaggio, c’è l’ok della proprietà #CR7

The figure does represent a huge wage drop for Ronaldo, who is currently on £15m-a-year at Real.
It was previously thought that the player was bent on leaving the side due to not being paid his perceived worth, yet if the above proposal is agreed over, he certainly couldn’t be accused of chasing the money.
