It’s perhaps the world’s worst-kept secret that Cristiano Ronaldo is Juventus’ highest earner.
The Portuguese star is the club’s biggest draw currently and is widely considered one of the best players in football.
Following Juve’s exit from the Champions League and the appointment of Andrea Pirlo as the club’s new manager, there’s been talk about a clearout at the club.
The effect of the coronavirus pandemic on the club has rendered the current wage structure unsustainable.
Reports indicate that the Turin club want to balance their books and have offered Ronaldo, whose €400,000-a-week wages take a huge chunk of their budget, to a host of clubs, including Barcelona.
