Report: Juventus offers $116 million for Ronaldo

  Report: Juventus offers $116 million for Ronaldo Could Cristiano Ronaldo really be heading to a new club this summer?According to the BBC, Real Madrid are mulling a mind-blowing $116 million offer from Juventus for Ronaldo. Other reports, from both Italy and Spain, have stated Juventus will offer the Portugal star a four-year contract worth $35 million per season. It’s unclear whether this number is before or after taxes, but it would still make Ronaldo by far the highest-paid player on the club, with Gonzalo Higuain making just under $9 million per season after tax.

Juventus just signed one of the best goal scorers the Champions League has ever seen. Or, after reading the tweet below, we can OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL: Juventus sign Cristiano Ronaldo for €100 million. Report: Cristiano Ronaldo will be presented as a Juventus player next Monday.

“I don’t know if Cristiano ’s goal is the best in the history of football, but it’s certainly an extraordinary goal,” said the Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri. Ever the diplomat, LA Galaxy’s new star wasn’t about to be gracious towards Ronaldo after this strike against England.

Like a lot of folks, one of the first things you do after you shake the cobwebs out of your head and clear up your eyes in the morning is check your cell phone notifications. As I arose from my evening’s slumber on Tuesday, there was a message from my good buddy Jorid, a name that will sound familiar to the faithful readers of years past around here.

The message read: “DANIEL”


Ronaldo to Juventus? Spain's media says 'ciao', Italy's welcomes star

  Ronaldo to Juventus? Spain's media says 'ciao', Italy's welcomes star Spain's media said goodbye to superstar Cristiano Ronaldo while Italy's welcomed him on Friday after persistent reports that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will leave Real Madrid for Italian champions Juventus. "Ciao CR7" said the headline of Barcelona newspaper Mundo Deportivo."Real accepts his departure, the key day will be today (Friday) and Juve wants to wrap up the operation so it can announce it," the newspaper said.Spanish sport newspaper AS said that the player could be unveiled to Juve supporters in Turin as early as Saturday, with the date 7/7 symbolic for number 7 Ronaldo.

#SportsNews #BreakingNews #Football #AmazingTV Cristiano Ronaldo is getting a lot of praise for his post-match interview after Juventus heroics No matter

Cristiano Ronaldo after wining his fifth Champions League final. After the match he questioned whether he had a future at Real Madrid. Others, he feels, perhaps do not. This has a long way to go, even if in the next few days he does, as promised, make an announcement and even if that does

This was his way of telling me that Cristiano Ronaldo joining forces with Juventus had just became official. (And, in turn, I had to shake off the fuzzies out of my eyes and put together an OFFICIALLY OFFICIAL post because I was already falling behind.)

As of this post going live, we are a little more than 24 hours removed from Ronaldo-to-Juventus actually happening. Some probably still can’t believe, others already working over all of the possibilities of starting lineups that have Ronaldo playing alongside Paulo Dybala, Douglas Costa and others.

It’s not just talking about all the potential starting lineups Max Allegri will be able to use next season, though. As most of the team goes further on with its first week of preseason training, not only do we await Ronaldo Day in Turin but also any kind of remaining roster fluidity and transactions that many are anticipating because of the kind of money Juve just dished out and took on.

Let’s take a crack at a couple of them.

Praying for Juve’s online store serves

It’s timed out. It’s loaded slow as all hell. It’s taken you much, much longer than you probably thought to even get a sniff of trying to buy Ronaldo’s new No. 7 jersey.

(For the record, the BWRAO servers survived Ronaldo Signing Day just fine.)

Resolving the Alex Sandro situation — for good or bad

OK, so on a much more serious note, we have one of the names that has been linked with an exit almost immediately after the Ronaldo signing was announced.

Or, you know, a name that has been rumored to possibly leaving for the better part of the past 14 months or so.

Sandro seems to be in between two very important career decisions. He could either sign a contract extension with Juventus, something that has been floated out there as a possibility for months now. Or, as was the case last summer when teams like Chelsea reportedly came calling, the chance to ask to leave is very much a possibility as well.

Juventus reaches deal with Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo

  Juventus reaches deal with Real Madrid to sign Cristiano Ronaldo Ronaldo had played with Real Madrid since the 2009-10 season.A report by Sky Sports says Juventus agreed to a transfer sum of 105 million Euros ($123 million) to procure Ronaldo from the LaLiga club.

Well it wasn't Cristiano Ronaldo 's day on the pitch as he failed to score as Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the Champions League final 3-1 with a brace from Gareth Bale, but the Portuguese still claimed Or it might be that the Frenchman just opts for Juventus instead. Looking forward to the next few days

Sergio Ramos had a message for Cristiano Ronaldo after he left Real Madrid for Juventus . Ronaldo might be incredibly talented, but it's the hard work he's put in over the years that has seen him reach the summit of world football - and stay there.

For all we know, Sandro is happy in Turin and the arrival of Ronaldo will be the thing that is the final push to get a contract extension signed. He’s been flashing a smile whenever he’s been pictured during Juve’s first couple of preseason training sessions, so obviously that’s all we need to know about the situation, right? RIGHT?

Resolving the Daniele Rugani situation — for good or bad

I don’t want Juventus to sell Rugani this summer. I don’t want them to sell Rugani next summer or the next 10 summers after that. I get that Rugani may not be the all-world defender he was thought to be when he came back from his loan spell on Empoli a few years back, but that doesn’t even come close to meaning that he’s not of use to this squad.

If there’s one area of the field that will be in some kind of transition from older players to younger players in the next few seasons, it’s in defense. Rugani is already here, Mattia Caldara’s potential has people licking their chops and Juve’s new right back, Joao Cancelo, just celebrated his 24th birthday a couple of months ago.

But, unlike in previous transfer windows when Rugani was linked with a move away from Juventus and we could just kinda laugh it off, this just seems different. That’s mostly due to what Rugani’s agent has said about Chelsea’s pursuit of Maurizio Sarri. (Antonio Conte is still technically Chelsea’s manager, he’s conducting preseason training sessions, yet everybody pretty much knows he’s getting fired whenever they hire somebody else this summer.)

5 quick thoughts on the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer, which makes sense for everyone involved

  5 quick thoughts on the Cristiano Ronaldo transfer, which makes sense for everyone involved This deal is being done at the right time for a player who still has a lot to give at the top level of the game. On Tuesday Real Madrid made the announcement that the rumors were true: Cristiano Ronaldo had been sold to Juventus. The statement made clear it was Ronaldo’s desire to leave the club at this time — almost comically so — and looking at the deal, it all makes sense, not only for Real Madrid and Juventus, but Ronaldo as well.Here are some quick thoughts on the deal:1.

Cristiano Ronaldo consoled Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon after the quarter-final. Buffon was infuriated by referee Michael Oliver's decision to award Madrid a penalty late on. Modric honoured with mural next to Messi and Ronaldo on Kazan Hotel after Croatia book seal World Cup semi-final

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring the late, decisive penalty. Juventus passed over Madrid; Madrid, as ever, passed through to the next round.

Of course, if you’re going to sell a center back that’s currently on the Juventus roster, I’d lean toward Medhi Benatia so that Juve don’t lose one of their best young assets.

But, with Sarri maybe-or-maybe-not signing with Chelsea soon, the Rugani rumors are going to be ever-present whether we are annoyed by them are just completely despise them with every bone in your body.

Resolving the Gonzalo Higuain situation — for good or bad

Out of all the players on the Juventus roster not named Cristiano Ronaldo or Paulo Dybala, there might not be a player who would demand a transfer fee as high as Higuain’s would likely be. And because of that, it’s why he’s been rumored to be on the way out this summer.

Higuain has stated in recent weeks that he would like to play in England before his career is over. But he’s also said that he’s happy in Turin.

But, like the Rugani situation, there’s somebody in Sarri that he has had some of his best seasons that could very well be named Chelsea’s new manager soon. (Or not.)

Ronaldo’s arrival is obviously a huge boost to Juve’s squad. But it also makes thing just that much more crowded up front. It already seems like a foregone conclusion that Marko Pjaca will be heading somewhere else this summer, but that still leaves a lot of talented players vying for a certain number of starting spots.

Look: Cristiano Ronaldo's contract dwarfs highest-paid athletes in other sports

  Look: Cristiano Ronaldo's contract dwarfs highest-paid athletes in other sports If you think athletes in North America’s four major sports league’s make a lot of money, you might want to see what Cristiano Ronaldo is making. Ronaldo’s deal with Juventus pays him a staggering $64.5 million per year. For some perspective on that, Oklahoma City Thunder guard, Russell Westbrook and Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, Zack Greinke — the highest paid players in the NBA and MLB, respectively, combine to make $75.8 million. Cristiano’s average annual salary dwarfs the biggest contracts across the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL. pic.twitter.

After two minutes Juventus went ahead. Cristiano Ronaldo put the ball in the back of the net to send his side into the semi-finals. The European Champions will find out their next rivals this Friday.

Share What the Cristiano Ronaldo Transfer Means for Juventus , Real Madrid, and the Rest of European Soccer. And, like Ronaldo , he made noises about leaving immediately after the Champions League victory over Liverpool. (And it just might be !)

And knowing that Higuain is now on the other side of 30 and not exactly sporting 16 abs like Ronaldo has been when he hit his 30s, Juventus may well view this summer as the final chance to truly get a big-time transfer fee for Pipa.

We continue to dream of a Champions League trophy

Juventus just signed one of the best goal scorers the Champions League has ever seen. Or, after reading the tweet below, we can consider him the best. /insert G.O.A.T. argument here/

ONE-HUNDRED AND TWENTY GOALS. That’s just ... holy crap, you guys.

This Juventus roster isn’t close to being a finished product. There will be sales, maybe a couple more additions in low-cost, low-risk type of moves that Beppe Marotta seems to really enjoy. But one thing that we know is that Ronaldo and all of his European goals, exploits and general excellence are now going to be wearing a Juventus jersey.

Expectations just got raised a level or two. That’s probably being a little conservative, too.

Ronaldo reaches deal with Spain's Tax Office to end tax case .
Spain's Tax Office has accepted a deal with Cristiano Ronaldo to plead guilty to tax fraud and pay a fine of close to 19 million euros in exchange for a reduced prison sentence that will likely be suspended. A source with knowledge of the deal confirmed to The Associated Press the agreement will be finalized in the coming days. The deal was first reported in Spanish media.In Spain, a judge can suspend sentences for two years or less for first-time offenders.Ronaldo had already reached a tentative deal with the state prosecutor's office, but Spain's tax authorities had yet to sign off on the agreement.
