A month ago, Juventus director, Fabio Paratici said they are not ready to lose Cristiano Ronaldo despite their defeat to Benevento, who are struggling to escape relegation.
Fabio Paratici told Sky Sport: “We’ve decided to keep Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s the best player in the world and he’ll stay with us”.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, after scoring an hat-trick against Cagliari last month was seen to bring his official career goal scoring record to 770, which made Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli present a special jersey named “G.O.A.T” to Cristiano Ronaldo for breaking the official record of goals scored by Pele of Brazil.
The 36-year-old, who joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018, has scored 25 goals in 27 appearances for the club in the Serie A 20/21 season. His contract with Juventus will expire on June 30, 2022.
Meanwhile, in another development, Andrea Agnelli has denied rumours about resigning: “I’m not leaving the club and who says the opposite brings me luck”, he told Repubblica. 🚨⚪️⚫️ #Juventus

With only the El Clasico clubs remaining in the Super League, Real Madrid and Barcelona, following massive notice of withdrawals from other big clubs last night, Andrea Agnelli, who is also the vice-president of the league, has accepted that the project cannot be continued.
As Juventus watch their tenth consecutive Serie A title slip away, their 1-0 loss to Atalanta in the last game now puts their top-four spot in danger as they are just two points off Napoli who are 5th on the league table.
The last time Juventus had 62 points or less at this stage was in 2010/11 season when they finished 7th on the log.
Andrea Agnelli will hope the tide is turned around as Juventus prepares to meet Parma in tonight’s encounter. He will be expecting all three points to enable them move to the third position ahead of Atalanta.
