Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus next year despite having about two more years on the deal he signed with them in 2018.
The Old Lady are planning to cut ties with the five-time Ballon d'Or winner next summer in a bid to reduce their wage bill having already forced the entire team to take pay cuts earlier this year.
Reports reveal that the 34-year-old currently earns a staggering £540,000-per-week in Turin, but the financial crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic might force them to sell him.
In a bid to also make some part of the money (£99 million) they paid to Real Madrid for his signature, Juve are considering letting him go in 2021.
However, here are the top five clubs the Portuguese could join despite his huge earnings according to SunSport.
The Red Devils would be delighted to welcome Ronaldo back to Old Trafford having already spent some time with them earlier in his career.
After joining them from Sporting Lisbon in 2003, Ronaldo led them to Champions League triumph and also won Premier League titles before exiting for Los Blancos in 2009.
However, with David De Gea earning as much as £375,000-per-week, the club might have to think twice before taking up the challenge.
Ronaldo has earlier been linked with a move to the French League giants but he has remained with the Italian League champions.
He would surely be open to a move to conquer in France, just like he has done in England, Spain and Italy. He was named as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe who is wanted by Real Madrid.
Sources close to Ronaldo's former teammate Nani claims the 35-year-old revealed he probably would play in the MLS. Nani said:
“A couple of years ago, he told me that he will probably end up in America. It's not 100 per cent but probably. There is a chance.”
The 35-year-old will reunite with former teammate Gonzalo Higuain if he joined Inter Miami.
Another Premier League outfit Wolves have also jumped in the chase for the forward and this is because of his Jorge Mendes.
He manages Ronaldo as well as Jose Mourinho, James Rodriguez, Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria.
A top club in China
China is one safe haven where Ronaldo can be well paid having being linked with an un-named Chinese club that offered Madrid £270m to sign him. Reports claim they offered to pay him around £90m-per-year in wages.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Juventus could be planning to cut ties with Cristiano Ronaldo at the end of this season due to the impact of the coronavirus crisis.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner currently earns £28 million - five times over what Paulo Dybala, who is the club's next most paid star, takes home.
And the Old Lady can't wait to get that huge amount off their wage bill in a bid to remain in business beyond this term.
