- Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus if they do not meet his financial needs
- The Italian club has been facing economic hardship due to the global pandemic
- Ronaldo recently agreed a pay cut to help the club cushion his finances
Cristiano Ronaldo could be sold by Juventus after the club's finances have been hit in recent months due to the spread of Cornovirus.
According to Italian news media outlet Il Messagero, the Biaconeri may not be able to afford Ronaldo's £500,000-per-week wages.
The economic impact of the global pandemic has led to club cutting down wages of players in recent weeks.
And it is understood that even when the matches resume in Italy, the Serie A champions will still not be able to afford his enormous wages.
Ronaldo recently agreed to let go of his four months salary to help save Juve's finances as well as manager Maurizio Sarri.
Their reduction have saved the Italian champions around £80million for the monthly payments of March, April, May and June.
Clubs in Europe have been hit with financial crisis and matches have been postponed until the pandemic have been swept under the carpet.
Lionel Messi and his Barcelona team-mates also had 70 per cent their wages cut during the coronavirus crisis.
Ronaldo made a summer move from Real Madrid to Turin for £100m but his market value has since dropped to around £60-65m, reports claim.
Players like Aaron Ramsey who is the second-highest earner after Ronaldo at Juve will also be affected by the current development.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo sent a strange text message to his former Juventus teammate Medhi Benatia by 11pm, asking him if they could train together.
The Moroccan defender who now plays for Qatar side Al-Duhail SC told the story of how the incident occurred after a league match.
Benatia and Ronaldo were unused subs in a game and when they got into the team bus, the Portuguese striker began to text his teammate after hitting the gym late at night.
Legit.ng also reported that Karim Benzema has slammed his former international teammate Olivier Giroud via a social media post after making comparisons.
The Real Madrid striker who was teammates with the Chelsea forward at the 2014 World Cup said “you don’t compare Formula 1 with karting” on Instagram.
