Juventus superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly told his club team-mates that he intends to leave Turin in the summer, with Il Messaggero (via Marca) claiming that the striker wants to pursue a new challenge.

Ronaldo's future at the club has come under intense speculation following Juventus' poor performance by their high standards in the recently concluded campaign, with the Bianconeri losing their Serie A title to rivals, Inter Milan while also getting knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 stage by Porto.

Though the club managed to qualify for the Champions League on the final day of the season, there are fears that Ronaldo could leave the club in the summer - with it being understood that Juventus might let him go in order to save up on his massive wages.

The 36-year-old's contract with the club runs till the summer of 2022, and that might not matter considering that the report states that the player for his part has told his team-mates that it is time for him to leave the club.

Despite Juventus' poor form, Ronaldo has been his usual brilliant self in front of goal this season, scoring 36 goals in all competitions, of which 29 came in the league - ensuring that he finished the campaign as Serie A's top goalscorer and won the Golden Boot for the first time in his three years in Italy.

The likes of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Sporting CP have been linked with his signature, though nothing has been confirmed as of now.
