Amid speculation linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Real Madrid or a move to the US, Juventus' sporting director has now spoken out about the Portugal superstar's future.
Ronaldo joined the Bianconeri from Los Blancos at the beginning of last season for a transfer fee of €100 million (R1.6 billion) and is contracted to the club until 2022, but has been linked with a potential move away from Turin at the end of the campaign.
However, Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici has now dismissed any suggestion that the 34-year-old could leave, stressing that the player will honour his contract with the reigning Serie A champions.
"He is very focused on his current objectives, I do not believe in the slightest that he will leave at the end of the season or later," Paratici said, as reported by Fox Sports.
"He is under contract; we are very happy with him and he is happy at Juventus."

Paratici also revealed that the Italian giants would not be making any signings during the January transfer window, despite speculation linking the likes of Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can with exits from the club.
"We will not make moves in January. The roster is complete and it is one of the best in Europe," he added.
Ronaldo made headlines again on Monday after scoring his 700th career goal during Portugal's 2-1 UEFA 2020 European Championship qualifying defeat to Ukraine.
