GDS: How Ronaldo is blocking Juventus’ Morata move

Despite leaving 12 months ago, Cristiano Ronaldo is still negatively affecting Juventus‘ transfer plans, according to reports in Italy.

The Portugal captain left the Bianconeri on the eve of last season to re-join former club Manchester United.

However, the Premier League side’s failure to qualify for the Champions League has reportedly led Ronaldo to push for an exit but with little success as there have been few takers – though LaLiga side Atlético Madrid are the club most heavily linked with a move.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report Atlético are reluctant to let Juve target Álvaro Morata leave as that would leave then needing a new striker and increase the pressure to make a move for Ronaldo, which is something neither the supporters nor the dressing room would be in favour of.

Ronaldo spent nine seasons at Atlético’s arch-rivals Real Madrid and has regularly clashed with Rojiblancos supporters and long-serving manager Diego Simeone.

The report suggests Atlético may be willing to allow Morata to leave if they can find another suitable replacement.

  1. This makes no sense at all. If neither the Atletico Madrid supporters or dressing room (and we can add Simeone) want Ronaldo at the club, and lets face it CR7 hates them too, then where is the pressure coming from?! Not that I really want Morata back at Juve, but the whole story seems like nonsense

  2. Absolutely
    Makes no sense
    Don’t see how ronaldo is stopping morata’s move here.just using ronaldo to make a story

  3. i agree with everyone saying that this is non sense
    they can sell morata and look elsewhere…how is ronaldo involved in the story?

  4. Well done, you made an article that made absolutely no sense, and made people read it, i mean soon did everyone realise this was total garbage, but nevertheless kudos for succeeding in gaining all these views and comments!

  5. The Forrest Gump of commentators who always runs with non stories…be grateful that Juve exist because they mean you do, too. You literally have no other purpose that to comment on them. None.
