Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly has no intention of staying at Juventus, should the Italians not make the Champions League. The 36-year-old was signed to a whopping £27m contract and missing out on Europe’s top competition would make that impossible to afford.
As well as Juventus struggling to afford his wages, Ronaldo himself is not prepared for a season playing in the Europa League.
The Old Lady extended their winless Serie A run to three games this weekend, when they could only manage a 1-1 draw with Fiorentina.
It leaves Juventus clinging onto the final space in the top four, with AC Milan separated by goal difference alone.
Juve face Milan in two weeks time, knowing defeat would likely end their chase for a place in the Champions League.

According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo is still desperate to add to his five European cups and will decide between joining Paris Saint-Germain or returning to Manchester United.
The Portuguese legend left Old Trafford back in 2009, after becoming one of the best players in the world under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got fans excited earlier this season, when he admitted that the forward would be one of two former Red Devils he would love to bring back to the club.
“There are a few players I’ve played with that I’d love to have in my team, of course,” he said in a Q & A session on the club’s official website.

“I’d love the player Roy Keane, I’m not sure if I could manage him though!”
He added: “I’d sign him every day of the week, Roy was so influential but then again, I played with Cristiano and he’s been the best player in the world alongside [Lionel] Messi for the past 10 to 15 years now, so Cristiano.
“You’d take him in your team, for sure.”
The news of Ronaldo’s exit plan comes just weeks after Juventus chief Fabio Paratici looked to quash rumours, claiming his future definitely lay in Turin.
“It makes me laugh, I never would’ve thought Ronaldo could be put up for discussion”, Paratici told Sky Italia.
“We’re talking about a player who is the current top scorer in Serie A and has won five Ballon d’Or awards.
“He has already won a lot of titles with us and it’s a privilege to have him in our squad.
“We will hold onto him and enjoy him as much as possible. We’re very happy to have him with us.”
Meanwhile, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has confirmed his side won’t be in the running for Ronaldo, who won four Champions League titles during his time at the Bernabeu.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will not come back to Real Madrid,” Perez said last week.
“It does not makes sense, he has a contract with Juventus. I love him a lot, he has given us a lot.”
