There are no signs Cristiano Ronaldo will leave Juventus, the club’s football director said on Thursday, dismissing speculation that the forward could move this summer.
The 36-year-old’s contract with the Serie A club expires in June 2022, and the club expect him to return to training after a break following Portugal’s Euro 2020 exit.
“There has been no sign from Ronaldo about a possible move, and no sign from Juve,” Federico Cherubini said.
“We are very happy that Ronaldo will rejoin the team once the rest period after the European Championship is over.”
In May it was reported Ronaldo would hold fresh talks about his future with Juventus in the summer.
The Portugal captain was set to leave the Italian giants if they missed out on qualifying for the Champions League.
Cherubini said he did not have a crystal ball to predict the future but that Ronaldo remains “pivotal” for Juventus.
“Let me reaffirm I’ll be happy if he stays,” he said.
Juventus finished fourth in Serie A after they beat Bologna 4-1 and Napoli dropped points with a 1-1 draw against Verona.
Speaking at a press briefing on Thursday, Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli added he was “absolutely certain” the club will participate in the 2021-2022 Champions League.
The club plans to raise up to €400m (£345m) in a new share issue to offset the hit to finances from the Covid-19 pandemic.
Juventus have appointed former Ferrari racing team principal Maurizio Arrivabene as chief executive officer for football as part of a broader revamp of its sporting management structure.
