Perez is unhappy over how Cristiano’s potential move to Juventus has unfolded
It has further been revealed in Real Madrid Latest News that Perez is extremely unhappy with Cristiano and his agent, Jorge Mendes, over how the whole situation has unfolded in the last couple of days. The construction magnate is now determined to not let the his Portuguese star leave for the 100-million-euro fee that had been originally quoted.
To elaborate on this Real Madrid Latest Transfer News, the primary reason for Perez’s change of heart is down to the “dissatisfaction” he feels about how Cristiano’s potential departure has been mooted and hushed, without ever taking him in the loop. After Zinedine Zidane‘s resignation following the Champions League final win over Liverpool in Kiev, Perez is not keen on letting his other pillar of strength leave at a time when the club will be looking to rebuild under new head coach Julen Lopetegui.
While it now remains to be seen as to which party makes the next move in what is quickly turning into a game of chess, Ronaldo is himself is clear in his head that he wants to make the move to Serie A and Turin this summer. The 33-year-old superstar is looking for a new challenge and views Juventus as the perfect stop to conclude his incredibly successful playing career.
Super agent Jorge Mendes and Jose Angel Sanchez, the right hand man for Florentino Perez, have already met earlier this week to discuss the transfer and speed up the negotiations between all the concerned parties. If Ronaldo indeed makes the move to Italy, it would bring an end to a glorious association which has lasted for nine long years and yielded numerous accolades for the player.
