Juventus offers’contract extension’ for CR7.


Juventus Consider Offering Cristiano Ronaldo New Deal Until 2023.


Juventus are keen to extend Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract until 2023 – in a move which would keep the Portuguese at the club until he’s 38 years old.

The superstar joined the Bianconeri in the summer of 2018 and has gone on to make 64 appearances so far for the club – scoring 40 times and providing 12 assists.


This campaign, Ronaldo has managed ten goals in just 14 Serie A appearances, while he has also managed a further two in the Champions League.

Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes recently insisted that the former Real Madrid man is ‘happy’ to remain at the club and work alongside manager Maurizio Sarri.


When asked if his client would end his career in Turin, Mendes replied: “Yes, I think so. He signed a contract with Juventus, he is very happy at Juventus and he is also happy with the coach. He’s happy with everything.”

Corriere dello Sport (via the Daily Mail) are now reporting that the club could look to renew the 34-year-old’s contract until 2023.


The report notes that Ronaldo is, in fact, ‘interested’ in extending his contract beyond 2023 after he held talks about his future with Mendes at the Dubai Globe Soccer Awards, where he recently won the award for best men’s player for the fourth straight year.

The forward believes he can continue to be a crucial figure for the club and Juventus’ sporting director Fabio Paratici is aware of this. As a result, he is ‘prepared’ to offer him a three-year deal with the possibility of an additional year.


Ronaldo’s current contract is set to run until the summer of 2022 and while a new deal isn’t expected to see him earn a pay rise, it will extend his stay at the club by at least a further year. The contract could be signed in spring, with the club keen to wait until they have a clearer idea of what trophies they could win this campaign.

The Bianconeri’s chairman Andrea Agnelli sees the five-time Ballon d’Or winner as a ‘vital’ presence in the dressing room and, as a result, he is hopeful of reaching a fast agreement with the player.

CR7 wins overall best player at Dubai.


Cristiano Ronaldo has been named men’s best player at the Dubai Globe Soccer awards, taking home the honour for a fourth successive year.

By Ronaldo’s own standards it’s been a modest 12 months, struggling to fully adapt to life in Serie A, and thus failing hit the goalscoring bar he sets for himself. This led to a third-place finish in the Ballon d’Or standings, with Lionel Messi and Virgil van Dijk ranking first and second, while the Dutchman also clinched the UEFA Player of the Year award


.

However, it’s not all bad for Ronaldo, as after helping Juventus to Serie A in 2018/19, he can rely on one individual honour – the Dubai Globe Soccer Men’s Best Player, an award he has made his own, winning it in six of its nine seasons in existence.

“I have to thank my family, my girlfriend, my boy there, Cristiano, my three kids who are waiting for me in the hotel, my friends, my teammates of Juventus and the national team, my agent, all the people here tonight who support this gala,” Ronaldo said, as quoted by thenational.ae.


“I have to say thank you to the Arabic community, which is always great with me. I have to thank Dubai as well – it’s a marvellous place to be, I’m coming every year and I love this place.

“And finally to thank [everyone] who voted for me. It’s a great honour to be here and receive this amazing award. I hope to be here next year to receive this award, of course. Thanks to everyone, and a happy New Year.”

England and Lyon full-back Lucy Bronze won the inaugural Women’s Best Player award, after a remarkable year saw her get her hands on the Women’s Champions League and Division 1 Féminine, while also picking up a bronze medal with England at the summer’s World Cup.

Elsewhere it was a Liverpool clean sweep, as Jurgen Klopp, Alisson Becker and Liverpool themselves won the equivalent awards for best manager, goalkeeper, and overall best club.

Cristiano Ronaldo eyes career as movie star when he retires from football


Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed a desire to try film acting when he finally retires from football.

The 34-year-old has bagged ten goals in 14 league appearances for Juventus this season, but the ex-Real Madrid man is apparently already planning for life after football, despite remaining at the top of the European game.


FBL-KSA-ITA-JUVENTUS-LAZIO
Speaking at the Dubai International Sports Conference, as cited by FotMob, Ronaldo explained that he would quit football when his ‘body is no longer responding in the right way on the field’, and hinted that he would like to try his hand at acting in the future.

“Several years ago, the age of playing football was until 30 to 32, but now you find those who are 40 years old playing on the field,” he is quoted as saying.


“The moment my body is no longer responding in the right way on the field, then it would be the time to leave.

“I aspire to continue my studies after retiring from football.

“One of the things that I seek to challenge myself in, for example, is acting in a movie.

“I hope I live more than 50 years to learn new things and face different challenges and try to find solutions for them.”


Ronaldo went on to explain that it is his personal drive and determination which has allowed him to continue plying his trade among Europe’s elite, confessing that ‘there are no special miracles or secrets’ to his success.

“The love of football is the main motive in achieving all the titles I ever won,” he added. “There are no special miracles or secrets in my success story, or any other success story. Rather, it is a great dedication to what you do.


“At the age of 34, I still have that fitness through diligence and hard work to get titles.”

Ronaldo won the Serie A title with Juventus last season, and I Bianconeri are joint-top with Inter going into the Christmas break this year.

…Break ties with Cristiano ronaldo

Barcelona striker, Lionel Messi has won his sixth Ballon d’Or, breaking a tie for most ever with his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo.

2-2: Ronaldo remember scoring days to save Juventus from draw against Sassuolo.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first Juventus goal since October to rescue a 2-2 draw at home to Sassuolo, as the Italian champions dropped points for only third time this season.

Leonardo Bonucci fired Juve into the lead with 20 minutes played in Turin, but an exquisite finish from Sassuolo winger Jérémie Boga levelled the scores just three minutes later, reports Reuters.

Francesco Caputo then put the visitors in front soon after the break with his seventh of the season. The striker pounced following a defensive mix-up and an error by keeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Maurizio Sarri brought Paulo Dybala on for Federico Bernardeschi with 53 minutes played. The Argentinian made an immediate impact, grazing the bar with a free kick after Ronaldo had a goal ruled out for offside.

Dybala was then brought down in the box by Filippo Romagna, and Ronaldo stepped up from the penalty spot to equalise and end his four-match goal drought.

Sassuolo’s 18-year-old goalkeeper, Stefano Turati, kept the visitors level with a save from Paulo Dybala, and then recovered from an error to stop Aaron Ramsey’s shot from trickling over the line.
It all happened so quickly, I never expected this,” said Turati, who was called up by Roberto De Zerbi on the night before the game. “It was an incredible day for me.”
Sevilla climb to second in La Liga

Sevilla moved up to second place, behind Real Madrid, with their ninth league win of the season – but had to work hard for a narrow 1-0 win over bottom club Leganés.

Diego Carlos struck the only goal in the 63rd minute of an end-to-end game. The defender blasted the ball into the roof of the net from close range after Jules Koundé’s overhead kick was parried.

Leganés are much-improved under Mexican coach Javier Aguirre and they produced a gutsy and bold display, creating numerous chances to score. Moroccan forward Youssef En-Nesyri narrowly missed with a bicycle kick early in the second half, before Carlos struck for the hosts.

The visitors laid siege to the Sevilla area in stoppage time but Julen Lopetegui’s side held on, extending their unbeaten run to 10 games – but the head coach was far from happy.
“We can’t kid ourselves, we need to improve a lot,” Lopetegui said. “We should have tried to keep playing attractive football and we would have created more chances, but sometimes you play badly and win, or play well but you lose.”
