Juventus To Accept £25m Bid For Ronaldo

Serie A giant Juventus are reportedly prepared to accept as little as £25million for Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo. The 36-year-old joined Juventus from Real Madrid in 2018, with Old Lady chiefs hopeful that he could help them to clinch an elusive Champions League title.
