Transfer Update: Ronaldo

After Cristiano Ronaldo was visibly upset about being substituted by manager Andrea Pirlo recently, there has reportedly been a new development regarding his Juventus future.

The 35-year-old, who turns 36 on Friday, scored a brace in his side's 2-1 Coppa Italia semi-final first-leg win over Inter Milan on Tuesday, but was substituted by Pirlo with 10 minutes left to play, and was clearly not happy to be taken off.

His manager, though, later downplayed the incident, saying: "There is no contract clause that says he can't be subbed off. He knows he is a fundamental player for us but to get his breath back, he must always be at the top."

Despite the minor spat between the pair, however, he is now reportedly set to sign a contract extension.

According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo will sign a new deal that will see him stay in Turin until 2023, with his current contract expiring at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.

He has been in fine form this season, having scored 22 goals in 23 appearances across all competitions for the Bianconeri so far.
