Ronaldo addresses Juve exit talk

Cristiano Ronaldo clarified his Juventus future after becoming the first footballer to win titles in England, Spain and Italy.

Ronaldo, 34, lifted his first Serie A title in his debut season with the Biaconeri, who in the process became the first side in Europe's top-five divisions to win eight consecutive league crowns.

In the build-up to the historic triumph in which they defeated Fiorentina 2-1, Ronaldo was subject to intense media speculation with regards to his long-term future in the Italian top-flight.

However, he was quick to quash the rumours brewing across the globe, insisting he's found a new home, in the form of Turin - despite the shock quarter-final UEFA Champions League exit.

"For me, there is only Juventus," Ronaldo is quoted as saying in Tuttosport. "It was a year of success, we are happy.

"You can't win all the time. We felt that we could do more and we wanted to win, but only one side can win the Champions League.

"Next year is a new page, the fans all want it and so do we. It is an important trophy, but it's difficult to get there in this tournament. It's a positive group and I believe it has been a good season."
 
The Old Lady head coach Massimiliano Allegri reiterated the notion; "Ronaldo is the future of Juventus.
 
"He is an extraordinary player who has had a great season and he'll have a great one next year. He is relaxed, even though he is disappointed like we all are."
 
Ronaldo has scored 26 goals and registered 13 assists in 39 games across all competitions during the 2018/19 season.
