A journalist close to Barcelona revealed that the Italian club Juventus had offered its first star, Cristiano Ronaldo, to the Catalan club, to get rid of his huge salary.
According to Spanish journalist Guillem Ballagh, who is close to Barcelona, Juventus spoke with Barcelona in order to sell Ronaldo to the latter, in a deal that might bring the two Millennium football legends, Lionel Messi and Ronaldo, together into one team.
According to Balagh, Juventus wants to get rid of Ronaldo’s huge salary, which exceeds 30 million euros annually, so he began to communicate with major European clubs, including Barcelona.
“He (Ronaldo) has been offered for sale to many clubs, including Barcelona. I am not sure if they can sell him with his huge salary, who will pay him that money?” Ballagh said, according to the Daily Mail.
This is the first time that the “dream scenario” is close to realization, which is Messi playing alongside Ronaldo in one team, a remote possibility that has always represented a discussion for fans.
Although the possibility of Ronaldo moving to Barcelona is very weak, the idea of selling him may make sense to Juventus financially, as the expenses of keeping Ronaldo are very huge, and the Italian champion has been seeking to rebuild the team and rely on young people, since Andrea Pirlo was appointed coach of the team
