Juventus Make Final Decision On Ronaldo's Future

Serie A giants Juventus have made a decision on Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been heavily linked with a return to Real Madrid.

The Portuguese was linked with a return to the Spanish capital after questions were raised about his future in Turin following the side's shock UEFA Champions League exit at the hands of FC Porto.

Los Blancos manager Zinedine Zidane did not help the cause with his comments about the five-time Ballon d'Or winner last week, but Juventus CEO Sporting director Fabio Paratici has confirmed Ronaldo.

“We have a project that we started from last season, one game will not change our views or our strategy," he told Sky Italia.

"This line continues and we are very happy with what we’ve done, so we’ll continue working to improve.

“This is Juve, we have Cristiano Ronaldo, the best player in the world, and we’re holding on tight.”

Paratici also confirmed they have no plans to part ways with manager Andrea Pirlo after the surprise defeat to Benevento left the side 10 points behind league leaders Inter Milan.

"We were not unsatisfied with the previous coaches, but there were different reasons why we decided to change," he added.

'"ust as a defeat won't change the project of a club, a victory won't either. Once an approach has been decided on, we see it through.

"I don't believe the word 'transitional' exists at Juventus. We play every game aiming to win, some go better than others, but transition isn't an issue here. Every year is important, even when it doesn't necessarily have the same results as in the past."
