Real Madrid deny Mbappe bid rumour

Adjust Comment Print

Juventus have made a sensational bid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Despite the glut of silverware, however, the five-time world player of the year has had frequent fallouts with Real and has declared on several occasions over the years that he wants to leave the club.

Ronaldo, 33, appeared to backtrack on that statement during Real's celebration parade through the Spanish capital the next day, when he told a mass of supporters: "See you next season".

Former Real Madrid striker Ronaldo feels Cristiano Ronaldo would thrive in Serie A amidst the growing speculation that he'll end his glittering LaLiga career in search of a new challenge.

Sources close to Ronaldo told ESPN that Juventus have made an offer to Real Madrid for the Portuguese superstar but that no decision has been reached by any party at this point, despite an earlier unverified report in Spain saying the clubs had agreed on a deal.

Neymar leads Brazil into seventh straight quarterfinal
Brazil's match victor Neymar clearly thinks Mexico players "talked too much" before their round of 16 defeat on Monday afternoon. World Cup action continues today as England take on Colombia for a place in the quarter-finals against Sweden or Switzerland.

Some reports are suggesting the Spanish giants have already accepted a €100 million (A$158 million) offer from Juve for Ronaldo.

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta met with Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes last week while finalising the signing of another client, Portugal full-back Joao Cancelo.

While a Neymar-to-Madrid move appears to be on the cards, the 13-time Champions League winners could also be tempted to return for Harry Kane's signature if they lose Ronaldo.

Ronaldo enjoyed an explosive start to the 2018 World Cup by scoring a hat-trick in his side's 3-3 draw with Spain, also hitting Portugal's victor in a 1-0 win over Morocco. Portugal's desire to go past the round of 16 however hit the rocks after they were edged out by Uruguay, following a 2-1 defeat.
