Cristiano Ronaldo net worth: Soccer star earns $600K for every social media post
Cristiano Ronaldo is very close to sign a contract with Manchester City and has already bid his Juventus mates goodbye
Manchester City and Cristiano Ronaldo are close to reaching an agreement over a move to the Etihad Stadium. Ronaldo reportedly said his goodbyes to his Juventus teammates and missed training on Friday, August 27, as Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri confirmed his imminent exit from the club.
Sources told ESPN that City manager Pep Guardiola and Ronaldo spoke on the phone on Thursday morning, August 26, ahead of his departure from Juventus. Allegri said Ronaldo told him he has "no intention" to stay at the club and will not be called up for Saturday's game against Empoli.
"Yesterday, speaking with Cristiano, he told me that he has no intention to stay at Juventus and for this reason, he will not be called up tomorrow [against Empoli] and he didn't train this morning," Allegri said. "I'm absolutely not disappointed because Cristiano took his own decision. He was here for three years, he gave his contribution, he put himself at Juventus' disposal, and now he's leaving and life goes on.
"Cristiano did a lot for this club, he's a great champion, I wish him all the luck in the world wherever he will play,” Allegri said. “He gave a great contribution, for the season that I trained him he led by example for the lads, so he is only to be thanked for what he did for Juventus."
Juventus, as per ESPN, wants around $32.92 million (€28 million) before allowing Ronaldo to leave. Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d'Or winner, spent six years at City's Manchester rivals, Manchester United, between 2003 and 2009, winning the Champions League and three Premier League titles.
