Agent Jorge Mendes confirmed “if Cristiano Ronaldo does leave Real Madrid, it’ll be for a new stage and challenge in his brilliant career.”
Amid multiple reports of an imminent move to Turin, with the medical set for Saturday – the seventh day of the seventh month for CR7 – his representative spoke to Portuguese paper Record.
“If Cristiano Ronaldo does leave Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the President, the whole team, the medical staff, the supporters and all the Madridistas around the world.
“It will be a new stage and a new challenge in his brilliant career.”
Real Madrid signed a gentlemen’s agreement in January allowing the Ballon d’Or winner to leave for €100m only to certain clubs, avoiding Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.
