Jose Mourinho has reportedly called Cristiano Ronaldo to talk about the Juventus forward’s intentions and suggest Roma as a solution to keep the tax advantages in Italy.
Ronaldo’s contract with Juventus expires in June 2022, but several reports in Italy claim the Portugal captain could leave Turin already this summer.
Massimiliano Allegri’s return to Juventus has not gone down well with the former Real Madrid and Manchester United star, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
La Stampa reveals his compatriot and former Real Madrid coach Mourinho, who will take over at Roma ahead of 2021-22, called to greet the superstar and wanted to understand his intentions.
Roma would be a solution to save the advantages of the Italian tax rate for foreigners, but the newspaper underlines such a hypothesis would be complex for a thousand reasons.
The report claims Ronaldo seems more and more likely to leave Juve and that his agent, Jorge Mendes, has contacted Manchester United regarding a sensational return to Old Trafford.
He has also been linked with Real Madrid, but the current €31m-a-year salary scares everyone.
Ronaldo finished 2020-21 as Capocannoniere in Serie A with 29 goals and has scored 101 goals in 133 games since joining the Old Lady.
