Jorges Mendes, the super agent that represents Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, has said that if the player leaves the club, it will be for a “new stage and challenge”.
Serie A champions Juventus are reported to have made a bid of €100million (£88m) for Ronaldo, who is Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer after nine seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Mendes is believed to have negotiated personal terms on behalf of the 33-year-old.
Speaking with Portuguese newspaper, Record, he dropped a big hint that Ronaldo could be set for an exit.
“If Cristiano Ronaldo does leave Real Madrid, he will be eternally grateful to the club, the president, the whole team, the medical staff, the supporters and all the Madridistas around the world.
“It will only be for a new stage and a new challenge in his brilliant career,” Mendes said.
