That’s according to Italian journalistPaulo Condo, anyway, who claims the Old Lady and Ronaldo have been working to find a suitable move over the last few months.
“Outside the official narrative, which obeys an obvious etiquette, it is clear to everyone that Juventus and Ronaldo have been waiting for a buyer able to free them from their respective constraints,” Condo wrote in Italian publication La Repubblica.
“It follows that Juve scores more or less always the same goals, whoever their main striker is since they always choose them well.”
Condo also claims that Juventus would have signed Italian shot stopperGigio DonnarummafromAC Milanthis summer – had they offloaded Ronaldo first.

“Only that Cristiano pays him four times the others, thus removing ammunition from the rest of the departments,” Condo added.
“In another budget situation, Juve would never have let Donnarumma finish atParis Saint-Germain.”
A number of clubs this summer have struggled to offload players, with many working with stricter budgets, whilePremier Leagueclubs appear to be least affected by such financial issues.
With that said, could United have what it takes to entice Ronaldo back to Old Trafford to where it all began? Just imagine.
