Juve ‘begin Ronaldo negotiations’

Italy champions Juventus are offering Cristiano Ronaldo €30m per season to leave Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

Marca lead their Tuesday edition with reports that the Bianconeri will offer the Portuguese star a four-year deal while Madrid have ‘promised a great discount’ on his reported €1 billion release clause.

According to the Madrid-based newspaper, Juve have already contacted Madrid to try to work out a fee for the global superstar.

Portuguese sports daily A Bola backs up such reports and states negotiations are already underway between the two clubs regarding a potential deal.

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes constructed fellow Portugal international Joao Cancelo’s €40m transfer to the Old Lady from Valencia last week.

Juve are hopeful of ending their 23-year Champions League drought next season after seven successive Serie A titles while Ronaldo has won five titles in his career.
