Juventus paid Real Madrid 117 million euros in the summer of 2018 to take over Cristiano Ronaldo and the Portuguese signed his four-year contract at the time. Although he still has two and a half years to go from this commitment, there is a chance that the attacker will sign a new contract in the coming months. The Corriere dello Sport says on Wednesday that Juventus is so satisfied with Ronaldo that it wants to keep him on board longer.
According to the Roman sports newspaper, Ronaldo and his business manager Jorge Mendes spoke about the future of the superstar around the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards last weekend, where he was selected as Player of the Year. Fabio Paratici’s Technical Director La Vecchia Signora has previously thrown a ball over an extension of the cooperation and the sports director would now be convinced that it is possible to keep Ronaldo on board longer.

Ronaldos obsession with winning prizes also speaks in favor of Juventus. The attacker would like to go into the history books as the best footballer of all time and he thinks he needs more Champions League titles and Ballons d’Or to get this done. Ronaldo can become the second player to win the billiard ball with three different clubs this season after Clarence Seedorf, while he now has one Golden Ball less than Lionel Messi.
In addition to his sporting achievements, Ronaldo has now scored 40 goals in 64 matches on behalf of Juventus, his role in the dressing room would also be a reason for the club to want to break open his contract. The Italian superpower is very pleased with the way Ronaldo moves within the selection and also with the way he welcomed newcomers Matthijs de Ligt and Adrien Rabiot last summer.
An extension of his contract, which runs until mid-2022, does not by definition mean that Ronaldo will close his career in Turin. The star player, who is celebrating his 35th birthday next month, has one more, according to reports from Italy Golden Contract in mind for example in the United Arab Emirates. Ronaldo, however, is convinced that he can always make his way to the Middle East at the age of 38 or 39.
