Vice-president of Juventus, Pavel Nedved spoke of the hot spots of the transfer window of his club, confirming in particular the presence of Cristiano Ronaldo at the resumption.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s vacation is coming to an end. After a Euro finished in the round of 16 with Portugal, then a hook by Greece, the striker is back in Italy, where he is expected in training on Monday. A priori, he should not have to pack his bags anytime soon, since Pavel Nedved, vice-president of Juventus, has confirmed that he will still be Turin next year, thus brushing aside some transfer rumors.
“Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Monday and stay with us,” insisted Nedved, questioned on this subject after the victory (3-1) of the Bianconeri against Cesena in a friendly. Last week, he had already said that “no one in Ronaldo’s entourage” had informed him of his intention to leave. At the start of the summer, rumors in the Italian press sent him to Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain.
Dybala and Chiellini expected to extend
Nedved also returned to the Paulo Dybala case. Under contract until June 2022 with the Old Lady, the Argentinian was for a time sent to FC Barcelona, while his extension was slow in coming. It should finally take place in the next few days, according to its leaders. “His agent is expected in Turin in the next few days and everything will be resolved, assured Nedved. Relations between us were not cold, we are on schedule.”
A last file was finally discussed: that of the extension of Giorgio Chiellini, whose contract expired on July 1, 2021. Captain of Italy, European champion this summer, the 36-year-old defender is now awaiting a new contract, which could take the form of an additional year, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano. “Chiellini is on vacation. Let’s give him time to recover and then we can calmly talk about his extension,” Nedved delayed for his part.
