Where could he go?

There are very few clubs in Europe who could afford to sign Ronaldo, 36, but the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Manchester United and PSG are among them.

A return to Real Madrid seems likely but with Man City’s pursuit of Harry Kane dragging on and looking less likely by the hour, perhaps Pep Guardiola will try to entice Ronaldo back to the Premier League?

Seeing the Manchester United legend line up for Manchester City would be a huge shock.

Heading to PSG, to play alongside Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe is probably financially impossible, but if Les Parisiens can make it work via Financial Fair Play rules, they will.

Ronaldo clearly wants a move away from Juve and with just nine days to go in the summer transfer window, this saga is going to dominate the headlines between now and the deadline on Aug. 31.
