Juventus share prices rocket as club make Cristiano Ronaldo move

05 July 2018

Italian champions Juventus have made an offer of Sh11.7 billion (100 million euros, $116.6 million) for Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, according to various media reports on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo now plays for Real Madrid in La Liga.

Ronaldo, who joined Real from Manchester United in 2008 for a then world record 80 million pounds ($105.65 million), is the Spanish club's all-time top scorer with 451 goals in all competitions and has won two La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies with them.

LeBron James agrees to four-year, $154 million deal with Lakers
While there had been dialogue between Paul and Altman since the season ended, James had not given the team any sense of his plans. The Lakers have a young, talented but inexperienced roster and they were hoping to land both James and possibly George.

Despite the glut of silverware, however, the five-times world player of the year has endured frequent fallouts with Real and has declared on several occasions that he wants to leave the club.

The 33-year-old, whose Portugal were knocked out of the World Cup last 16 by Uruguay on Saturday, hinted after May's Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was considering leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, Ronaldo backtracked on those comments in the days following, and has not spoken about his club future since.

He went from an unheralded second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M in 2009 to become one of the best big men in the league. Randle was given a $5.6-million qualifying offer by the Lakers earlier this week, which made him a restricted free agent.

Sources close to Ronaldo told ESPN that Juventus have made an offer to Real Madrid for the Portuguese superstar but that no decision has been reached by any party at this point, despite an earlier unverified report in Spain saying the clubs had agreed on a deal.

ESPN Deportes' Paola Nunez reported that the "Jugones" story means that Real Madrid are at least considering the possibility of negotiations with Juventus.

Real Madrid issued their denial after Spanish sports dailies Marca and AS ran articles citing the posting.

They were without both Fabian Schaer and captain Stephan Lichtsteiner at the back, prompting Johan Djourou and Lang to come in. The Swiss certainly weren't playing like a team ranked No 6 in the world and with only one loss in their previous 25 games.
