Last month, it was claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo could surprisingly leave Juventus in the next transfer window. His club has now finally broken its silence on the rumours.
The 35-year-old has been in fine form in 2020, scoring 22 goals since the turn of the year.
His latest brace in a 2-1 win over Lazio saw him become the first player to net 50 goals in each of the Premier League, LaLiga and Serie A, while he also became the first Juve player in 68 years to reach 30 league goals.
However, at the beginning of June, it was reported that the Bianconeri and Ronaldo could go their separate ways after the 2019/20 campaign.
Juve's sporting director, Fabio Paratici, has now rubbished exit talk involving both the club's superstar and coach Maurizio Sarri, though.
"I'm here since 10 years, and we've been leading the Serie A table for nine years," he told Sky Sports Italy.
"I've lived five years with (previous manager Massimiliano) Allegri, winning nine out of 10 Italian titles, and there have always been problems or some talks about internal meetings, even after some wins.
"We are used to these type of things, and this year has been the same too.
"I certainly confirm that Sarri will stay as Juventus coach next year, and the same for Ronaldo, who is totally convinced to stay here with us."
Ronaldo and Ciro Immobile both sit on 30 strikes in Serie A this season, and could still catch Robert Lewandowski, who has scored four more goals, in the European Golden Shoe race.
