FC Barcelona President, Joan Laporta, is set to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to the Camp Nou this summer for a fierce partnership with Lionel Messi.
Juventus were at risk of losing Cristaino this summer when it looked like they were not going to make it to next season’s UEFA Champions League. Despite clinching the fourth UCL ticket of the Serie A, he’s still been rumoured to be eyeing a move away from the Old Ladies.
The five-time world player of the year winner has been linked to a sensational return to the Old Trafford this summer with Man United looking to offer Juventus Paul Pogba in return.
His boyhood club are also not out of it, his mother is assuring Sporting faithfuls that he’d return to the Portuguese giants someday as a player.
AS reports that Barcelona’s President wishes to unite the two rivals at Camp Nou next season ahead of David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
Larpota however wishes to offer Antoine Griezmann, Philippe Coutinho and Sergi Roberto in exchange for the Portuguese international.
Messi’s existing contract with the Catalan giants is set to expire at the end of June 2021 and he’s not our pen to paper to sign a new deal with the club.
He’s expected to be a Barcelona player next season despite the team’s failure last season and the club’s financial struggles.
It’s also believed that the club are almost where they want financially and also close to completing Messi’s contract renewal.
36-year-old Ronaldo is the highest earner in the Serie A currently and it’d cost FC Barcelona a fortune to bring him to Catalonia.
However letting Griezmann and Coutinho move to Turin would help Barca to afford the five time UCL winner’s wages.
