Juventus are ready and planning to extend Cristiano Ronaldo contract for another two years, MySportDab reports.
The former Real Madrid player’s contract is currently set to expire in June 2022, and Juventus hope to make his stay for another two year in Turin.
According to Tuttosport, Juventus are desperate to keep their most prized asset and believe that Ronaldo would be influenced more by results than his massive salary.
Having signed £500,00-a-week contract for four years when signing for Juventus in 2018, Ronaldo has become a key player for the club and is seen as very crucial in their bid to win the Champions League.
Cristiano Ronaldo only turned 35 in February, but has continued to score many goals at the highest level in Italy.
The Portuguese international has scored 25 goals in 32 appearances this term, including 21 goals in 22 Serie A match.
He’s currently on a scoring run across 11 consecutive Serie A matches further highlighting Ronaldo’s importance to Maurizio Sarri’s plans.
MySportDab understands that Juventus plan to recruit a new Striker to play alongside Ronaldo.
Juventus’ long-term plan would be for the new striker to eventually take up Ronaldo’s scoring antics, with the global icon expected to finally depart Turin before he turns 40.
Premier League Stars Gabriel Jesus and Harry Kane are both on Juventus’ shortlist, alongside Paris Saint-Germain star Mauro Icardi and RB Leipzig frontman Timo Werner.
Juventus believe that signing another striker would prove their ambitions for more trophies to Ronaldo, and convince him to agree to a new contract extension.
But Juventus currently remain in isolation amid the growing threat of the deadly coronavirus, with Ronaldo stil at his home on the island of Madeira to avoid the pandemic after being with his mother.
Ronaldo’s Team-mate Daniele Rugani became the first player in the Serie A to test positive for the virus, with Italy later bringing up a nationwide lockdown, and the league has now been suspended until April 3.
