Watch: Ronaldo hints at Juventus exit with a cryptic message

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at Juventus is set to be one of the talking points in the coming weeks after the Portuguese superstar wrote a cryptic message on his Instagram account that gave the impression that he could leave Italy this summer.

Ronaldo still has another year left on his contract but his future was put into question when he was left on the bench for Juventus’ final league game against Bologna on Sunday, with the club citing fatigue for the decision.

Reports said on Tuesday that the former Real Madrid and the Manchester United striker is set for fresh talks with the Juventus top hierarchy in the coming weeks to decide on his future.

Juventus’ season has been a frustrating one as they saw their nine-year Serie A winning streak brought to an end by rivals Inter but they were still able to secure the Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia titles.

Ronaldo wrote the following message on Instagram: “The life and career of any top player are made of ups and downs. Year after year, we face fantastic teams, with extraordinary players and ambitious goals, so we always have to give our best to keep ourselves at excellence levels.

“This year we couldn’t win Serie A, congratulations to Inter for the well-deserved title. However, I have to value everything that we achieved this season at Juventus, both in collective and individual terms. The Italian Super Cup, the Italian Cup and the Serie A Top Scorer trophy fill me with happiness, mainly due to the difficulty they carry with them, in a country where nothing is easy to win.

“With these achievements, I reached a goal that I had set myself since the first day I arrived in Italy: to win the Championship, the Cup and the Super Cup, and also to be Best Player and Top Scorer in this great football country filled with tremendous players, giant clubs and a very own football culture.

“I’ve already said that I don’t chase records, records chase me. For those who don’t understand what I mean by this, it’s very simple: football is a collective game, but it is through individual overcoming that we help our teams achieve their goals.

“It is always looking for more and more on the field, working more and more off the field, that records eventually emerge and collective titles become inevitable, some being the natural consequence of the other.

“So, I’m very proud with this fact that has been widely replicated in recent days: Champion in England, Spain and Italy; Cup winner in England, Spain and Italy; Super Cup winner in England, Spain and Italy; Best Player in England, Spain and Italy; Best Scorer in England, Spain and Italy; Over 100 goals for a club in England, Spain and Italy.

“Nothing compares to the feeling of knowing that I’ve left my mark in the countries where I’ve played, and that I gave joy to the fans of the clubs I represented. This is what I work for, this is what moves me and this is what I’ll always keep chasing for until the last day.

“Thanks to everyone who took part in this journey! We stand together!”
