Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo had begun to consider his exit from the club after their Champions League exit at the hands of Porto last season.
La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that while there is clarity about Ronaldo’s decision now, his heart had begun to waver right after Juve were knocked out of the Champions League by Porto last season. Ronaldo had a very good relationship with Andrea Pirlo till the time he departed but the changes and the lack of stability at the Bianconeri have forced him to now seek a move.
It is said that Ronaldo was affected by criticism from the fans after the loss to Porto and after that, he had contacted Jorge Mendes to understand whether he could leave or not.
That’s why, it is said, in interviews last season, Ronaldo sounded non-committal about his future at Juventus and never concretely stated that he’s staying at the club.
