Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus shirts ‘printed and leaked’ ahead of Real Madrid move

Rumours of star's £88million move to Turin went into overdrive as pictures show Italian champions already preparing for his arrival

Cristiano Ronaldo could be on the brink of completing an £88m move to Juventus after pictures emerged of shirts with his name on it in the Italian champions’ colours.

The Real Madrid star has been linked with a move away as the club line up PSG pair Kylian Mbappe and Neymar to replace him, with reports claiming Ronaldo is unhappy with his current Madrid contract.

The leaked image shows Juventus shirts printed with ‘Ronaldo 7’ on the back, suggesting he would retain his iconic number, snatching it off Juan Cuadrado at his new club.

While Ronaldo’s official release clause is a staggering €1bn (£880m), Madrid have reportedly indicated they would accept a tenth of that figure to prise him away.

Juventus appear best-placed to snap Ronaldo up, although they will need to flog a host of stars to avoid FFP infringements.

Gonzalo Higuain appears to be the first name out of the door, closing in on a £53m switch to Chelsea.

Ronaldo’s unhappiness at Madrid, despite winning four Champions League titles in the last five seasons, stems from being paid ‘only’ £300,000 a week, far below the salaries of fellow global stars Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Juventus are rumoured to have offered a £500,000-a-week deal, which would bring him on par with the two South Americans.

A move to Serie A would spell the end of a nine-year stint in Madrid for Ronaldo, whose glittering trophy cabinet includes two La Liga titles and three Copa del Rey wins alongside the European triumphs.

Leaving Manchester United for Real in 2009, Ronaldo has gone on to score a staggering 450 goals in 438 games for Los Blancos.
