Juventus vice chairman Pavel Nedved has once again insisted star attacker Cristiano Ronaldo will stay at the club.

Ronaldo was heavily linked with a move away from Juventus earlier this summer, with Paris Saint-Germain mooted as a potential destination for the Portuguese attacker.

The 36-year-old, though, now appears set to stay at Juventus, and Nedved insists they are counting on the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who has a year left on his current contract with the Serie A side.

"Ronaldo is our player, he has a year left on his contract and we are happy to have him with us," Nedved said ahead of Juventus' 2-1 win over Monza, as quoted by Tribal Football.

"He guaranteed goals every year, and a lot of them too. He's a top level player and we are counting on him."

Meanwhile, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has revealed that Ronaldo arrived at the Old Lady training camp after vacation with 'enthusiasm'.

Ronaldo, who was not called up for their clash with Monza, is expected to be available for selection against FC Barcelona in the Joan Gamper trophy final match, which is set to take place Johan Cruyff stadium on August 9, 1:00 am IST time.
