Juve address Ronaldo's future

Serie A

With speculation around Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly never settling down, yet another revelation has been made about the Portugal star's future at Juventus.

According to NDTV Sports, Juventus director Pavel Nedved has insisted that Ronaldo has provided no indication of a desire to leave Turin in this window, and that the club expects the star to be back in training after his holiday.

"Cristiano is on holiday. We have no signal from his entourage that he wants to leave," Nedved told members of the media at the unveiling of the Serie A calendar for the 2021/22 season.

"We're waiting for him and he will return around July 25 as scheduled."

Following an excellent display at the 2020 UEFA European Championship, Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing down, and the Bianconeri appear confident he will see out the remainder of his contract, which is set to expire at the end of the upcoming season.

Juve have also welcomed head coach Massimiliano Allegri back after he left the club two seasons ago, prompting Nedved to reflect on the club's situation since his departure.

"There was a certain routine with (Allegri) for five years," Nedved added.

"Then he went for two years to take a little holiday but now he's back with great motivation.

"I think it's true when (former Juve manager Maurizio) Sarri says we didn't celebrate that Scudetto very much, because perhaps it came naturally as we had already won so much.

"We tried again with Andrea Pirlo (Juventus's coach last season), but we ended in fourth. We celebrated that achievement after a complicated season perhaps more for the many sufferings."
