Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici has given a firm response to speculations that Cristiano Ronaldo is considering an exit from Juventus.
Paratici insists Ronaldo represents the future of Juventus and claims criticism towards the five-time Ballon d’Or winner makes him laugh.
The Portuguese captain has suffered recent criticism, coming in aftermath of the Bianconeri’s Champions League exit.
Several sources have claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo is honestly considering an exit from the Turin club. Meanwhile, the likes of PSG, Inter Miami, and Real Madrid have been named as his potential next destinations.
Although Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo has dismissed those reports yesterday, hinting that Cristiano Ronaldo has more than proved his worth for the Old Lady.
In a like manner, Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici has firmly shrugged off all exit claims.
“We focus on one game at a time, we must do the best for ourselves, not for the others. Inter’s win changes nothing for us,” he told Sky Sport Italia ahead of Juve’s away clash at Cagliari
Then speaking on Ronaldo’s ‘potential’ exit, the Juve sporting director adds: ” It makes me laugh. I never imagined Ronaldo could be put into question. I grew up in a small town and I heard people discussing Platini, Rivera, Baggio, top players inside bars.”
” Ronaldo won five Ballon d’Ors, I don’t know how many Champions League. He won so many trophies and scored so many goals at Juventus. It’s a privilege to have him here, we are happy to have him here.”
“He surely represents the future of Juventus.”
