Juventus are fully convinced star player Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at the club next summer, according to reliable football journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Ronaldo has been impressive for Juventus ever since joining them in the 2018 summer transfer window, but rumours in recent months suggested both parties would part ways at the end of the current season. The reason most pointed out was that the financial repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic would force the Old Lady to offload the Portuguese attacker, who is the club's highest-paid player by quite some distance.

However, there seems to be no plans in place for Ronaldo and Juventus to part ways before the former's current contract with the Bianconeri expires in the summer of 2022. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed on Que Golazio Podcast that Juve are 'fully convinced' that the 35-year-old will stay at the club next summer.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo, who was recently named 'Player of the Century' at Globe Soccer Awards, has scored 16 goals from 14 matches across all competitions for Juventus this season. The five-time Ballon d'Or will be aiming to continue his fine form for the European giants, who, despite his great performances, have struggled at times this season, with the defending Serie A champions currently languishing at sixth in the points table in the Italian top-flight.
