Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo told him that he wants to leave the club in this transfer window.
It has been confirmed by the returning Bianconeri coach that the 36-year-old Portuguese has communicated his desire to quit Juve.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Ronaldo told the manager on Thursday that he has his heart set on leaving the Old Lady before the transfer window closes.
"Cristiano Ronaldo told me yesterday that he wants to leave Juventus immediately," Allegri said in a press conference, per Romano.
"It's true and confirmed. This is why he wasn't training today and he's not available for tomorrow match vs Empoli."
The ex-Real Madrid forward is expected to join Premier League champions Manchester City in a move that is widely viewed as a controversial one given his status as a Manchester United legend.
Ronaldo spent six years at the Red Devils between 2003 and 2009, during which he won a remarkable nine trophies and the Ballon d'Or.
