Less after. The president looked at me with eyes that did not want to say the same thing, as if I was no longer indispensable, if you know what I mean, "he explained in the weekly.
According to the footballer, Florentino Perez even let him know that his "departure would not be a problem."
Cristiano Ronaldo also indicated that his transfer to Juventus was not related to any desire to earn more money: "If I had made my transfer a money deal, I would have gone to China , where I would have won five times more than here or at Real. I did not come to Juve for the money, "assured the Portuguese.
At the beginning of July, Cristiano Ronaldo changed clubs and went from Real Madrid to Juventus in Turin. The contract with the famous 33-year-old national footballer from Portugal is four years old and will expire in the summer of 2022.
