Cristiano Ronaldo will spend the 2021/22 season with Juventus.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said that the Portugal captain will spend the new campaign with Juventus despite linking him with a move away.
He earns €30m a year at Juventus and the club could risk letting him go for free next season when his contract expires.
Allegri told reporters: “He has never wanted to leave. He told me that he’s staying and he will be in Udine.”
Ronaldo himself took to Instagram in lieu of comments which led to speculation over his future.

Ronaldo writing: “Anyone who knows me is aware of how focused I am on my work. Less talk and more action, this has been my guiding motto since the start of my career.
“However, in view of everything that’s been said and written recently, I have to set out my position.
“More than the disrespect for me as a man and as a player, the frivolous way that my future is covered in the media is disrespectful to all the clubs involved in these rumours, as well as to their players and staff.
“My story at Real Madrid has been written. It’s been recorded. In words and numbers, in trophies and titles, in records and in headlines. It’s in the Museum at the Bernabeu Stadium and it’s also in the minds of every fan of the club.
“And beyond what I achieved, I remember that in those nine years I had a relationship of deep affection and respect for ‘merengue afición’, an affection and respect that I retain to this day, and that I will always cherish.
