Cristiano is already out of Juve. Or, at least, he has decided so. The Portuguese showed up this morning at the Bianconera sports city and left an hour later without participating in the training session. More than saying goodbye to his colleagues and the board, he could not do. Yesterday ‘Sky Sport’ revealed that the ex-Madridista had already emptied his box office and today, apparently, he already said goodbye.
Cristiano was always clear about his intention to leave and did not want to waste another minutes. Yesterday, as AS announced, his agent closed the agreement with Manchester City for a contract until 2023, but what is strange is the farewell of Cristiano when, among the clubs, there is still no approval. La Vecchia Signora is waiting for the official offer from the Citizens and their requests have not changed: 25/30 million or a barter that includes Gabriel Jesús. The problem is that Guardiola considers the Brazilian non-transferable and opposes his departure, which has complicated the signing. Mendes will try to fix the matter this Friday to make the operation official this weekend and not extend the soap opera.
The Italians, meanwhile, are looking for a replacement and are in a hurry: if the Brazilian does not arrive, Vecchia Signora will try to bring Kean back and negotiate for Icardi. But the Turin team is aware of the difficulty of both objectives. For this reason, the list is extended and includes the name of Real Madrid player Jovic. The Serbian striker is Ancelotti’s first option to give Benzema a rest, but the arrival of Mbappé could change things. Ancelotti, after the preseason, believes he can get a better performance from the player, but it is not a secret that Madrid are not happy with the performance of a player who cost a whopping 60 million and the arrival of Mbappé would not help him to have minutes.
