According to Bonucci, Cristiano Ronaldo never looked for a way out of Juventus
Ronaldo sparked speculation of interest from PSG before the Ligue 1 giants were presented with the opportunity to sign Messi, but Bonucci claims the Portuguese superstar never looked for a way out of Juve.
What did Bonucci say?
Speculation about the future plans of the five-time winner Ballon d’Or surfaced on the margins of the 2020-21 test campaign in Turin, which left Juve without an internal title and speculation about a bigger Champions League misfortune. As Cristiano Ronaldo approaches the final year of his contract, the legendary 36-year-old has been challenged to relocate, but it was his eternal rival Lionel Messi who delivered the biggest transfer shock of the summer, severing ties with Barcelona as a free agent.
The Argentine icon is now expected to contact Paris Saint-Germain, eliminating any chance of Cristiano Ronaldo going that route, but Leonardo Bonucci argues that the decisions made by Lionel Messi have not influenced the decisions of his current club colleague. The Juventus defender said he thinks Cristiano Ronaldo would have stayed even if Lionel Messi hadn’t left for Paris Saint-Germain. This is an added value for them, and Leonardo is confident that this year, more than in previous years, it will help them achieve all of their goals.
A little about the topic
While the Bianconeri were able to retain Cristiano Ronaldo’s services, bringing fresh faces aboard proved to be difficult. A deal was struck with Brazilian teen Kaio Jorge, but he remains so for the future, and negotiations elsewhere have not been as productive. Euro 2020 winner Locatelli is still the main target, but difficult to judge from Sassuolo, while a return to Italy for Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic has also been discussed.
About the possible shifting of steps by the Bosnian midfielder Leonardo Bonucci said that they talked, but not about the transfer market. they spoke as friends and not as former teammates. He is a great player, if he comes back he will definitely be an important player for the group and for the team. Juve suffered a 3-0 defeat to Barcelona in the last timeout of the Joan Gamper Trophy and has a final friendly date with Atalanta to be hosted on Saturday ahead of Serie A’s new season away at Udinese on 22 August.
