Cristiano Ronaldo Makes Final Juventus Decision Which Will See Him Walk for Free

Cristiano Ronaldo has reached a verdict on his Juventus future after entering the final 12 months of his deal in Turin, according to reports in Italy.

Ronaldo has been heavily linked with sensational returns to Real Madrid and Manchester United over the last year, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believed to be in touch with the 36-year-old.

Despite his advanced years, the Portuguese icon continues to post incredible goalscoring numbers and was the top scorer in Serie A last season with 29 goals in 33 games.

It is no surprise Ronaldo is as in-demand as ever - but he has decided to see out the final year of his deal.

That's according to La Gazzetta dello Sport , which claims Ronaldo appears likely to leave for free next summer with no terms agreed for an extension.

Juventus are expected to push for a new deal over the next 12 months, but the five-time Ballon d'Or winner is also keen to return to Sporting Lisbon, where he emerged from the academy ranks.

This latest update on Ronaldo's future is not a surprising one, as Juve chiefs and players have been adamant the player will stay at the Allianz Stadium for some time.

Sporting director Federico Cherubini added: "We haven't had any indication on the part of Cristiano Ronaldo [that he wants to leave].

"We don't need to talk about a transfer and Juventus do not want to sell him. We're talking about a player who scored 36 goals in 44 games last season.
