It was reported that Ronaldo and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli had met in Greece earlier today to finalise the deal to take the Portuguese captain to the Serie A.
The Real Madrid striker is on a postseason break in Greece following the end of a campaign that saw him help his club to a third straight Champions League title and then captain his country at the World Cup in Russia.
Gazzetta Dello Sport had first reported that Agnelli was making a trip from Italy to Greece on a private jet, with ESPN saying that a source confirmed to them that it was indeed with the intent of finalising a deal for Ronaldo.
The Italian publication also reported that Ronaldo and Juventus head coach Max Allegri had spoken on the phone last Friday.
The 33-year-old would be a massive signing for Juventus, as Max Allegri looks to claim a Champions League trophy that has so far alluded him in his career.
Ronaldo is Madrid’s all-time top goal scorer and has won the European Cup four times during his nine years at the Bernabeu, with his contract due to expire in 2021
