The Portuguese superstar returned to training in Turin this week, although his long-term future remains unclear with his contract set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 season.

Regardless of the contract situation, Allegri has insisted he expects a lot from the five-time Ballon d'Or winner in the coming campaign.

"Ronaldo is a great player and a smart guy. I spoke to him yesterday as I did with the others," Allegri said at a press conference, per Juve's official website.

"I told him that this is an important season and that I am happy to meet him again, now he has more responsibility, because three years ago we had a more experienced team, while now there are younger players.

"I expect a lot from him in terms of responsibility, he is in good condition and he is fit.

"There are different moments in a season, playing one game every three days I'll need to rotate the team, involving all the players."

Here are 10 players, including Ronaldo, who could be in the running for this year's Ballon d'Or prize!
