Cristiano Ronaldo could end his playing career at his current club Juventus, the agent of the Portuguese superstar Jorge Mendes revealed.
The 34-year old has been with the club since 2018 and has continued to show perfect form. He’s played 62 games for Juve so far, contributing with 39 goals and 12 assists. Ronaldo received recognition by winning this year’s Serie A Player of the Year award.
Cristiano Ronaldo is happy at Juventus
“Yes, he could do that. He has signed a contract. He is happy at Juventus, working under a great coach,” Mendes told Italian outlet Calciomercato.
Mendes was also asked whether his client should’ve won this year’s Ballon d’Or, instead of Lionel Messi.
“He deserved to win it at least once over the last two years. If he had still been playing for Real Madrid, he would’ve won the Ballon d’Or. He can win it next year. I can only say what I think, and for me, it’s an injustice. Cristiano is only thinking about working and winning it next year.”
“Ronaldo has changed the history of football; he has made a small country like Portugal great. When he arrived at Real Madrid, he ended Barcelona’s dominance. There are no comparisons, Cristiano is the best. CR7 is the best player in the history of world football. Before Ronaldo, Portugal won nothing. Ronaldo has won the European Championship and the UEFA Nations League,” the agent added.
