Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Juventus is appearing to be coming to an end after the superstar was sidelined from the Bianconeri's new kit launch, which is a surprise considering that he is arguably the most marketable athlete in the world today.

Ronaldo's future at Turin has been a source of speculation following the club's poor performance in the recently concluded season as they lost their Serie A title to Inter Milan while also getting knocked out in the round of 16 by Porto in the Champions League.

The 36-year-old has been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United and now his departure looks imminent considering that he is usually at the front and centre for any commercial events.

Matthijs de Ligt, Rodrigo Bentancur, Weston McKennie and Paulo Dybala were all chosen as the main models to advertise the strips for the 2021-22 season, with Ronaldo relegated to further down the page. 

The Portugal skippers exclusion from the front spot has added further fuel to fire that he could leave the club in the summer despite having one-year left on his current deal. However, there still is uncertainty as to which club would be willing to pay the £27million asking price for the player and whether they would be able to afford his massive wages.

Despite all the speculation surrounding his future, Ronaldo continues to score goals for fun - netting 36 goals in all competitions last season, including 29 in the Serie A, which was the highest in the league and helped him win the Serie A Golden Boot.
