Cristiano Ronaldo set to be offered new two-year deal by Juventus to keep forward beyond 39th birthday – The Sun

JUVENTUS want to tie Cristiano Ronaldo down for a further two years – extending his contract beyond his 39th birthday, according to reports.

The Portuguese star turned 35 in February but continues to smash in the goals and prove he is still rivalling Lionel Messi as the world’s very best.

Now according to Tuttosport, his side are hoping they can convince the ex-Real Madrid man to stay at the Allianz Stadium.

Ronaldo’s current four-year deal signed in 2018 runs out in 2022.

And an extra two years – taking him until the end of the 2023/24 season – would mean he turns 39 in his final season in Italy.

The £500,000-a-week hero would certainly continue to demand high wages.

But if Juventus have still not won the Champions League by the time his current deal endss in 2022, Ronaldo will surely be begged to stick around to try and help the Italians secure European glory for the first time since 1996.

This season he has scored 25 goals in 32 appearances, including 21 in 22 in Serie A.

He managed to score in 11 consecutive top-flight games between December 1 and February 22 – missing the win over Brescia – before firing a blank against Inter Milan in their most recent match.

The reports adds that Juventus are also lining up a number of traditional No9s aged under 30 to come in and play alongside Ronaldo.

The idea would then be for them to eventually take on the responsibility of replacing him as the side’s primary goalscorer.

Premier League stars Harry Kane and Gabriel Jesus are both options, as are Mauro Icardi – on loan at Paris Saint-Germain from Inter – and Timo Werner.
