Report: Allegri told Agnelli to sell Ronaldo

Former Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reportedly advised patron Andrea Agnelli to ‘get rid of’ Cristiano Ronaldo. ‘He’s blocking the growth of the team’.

La Repubblica claims Allegri left a piece of advice to the President before he was sent away.

“Get rid of Ronaldo, he’s blocking the growth of the team and the club,” the former coach told the patron, according to the newspaper.

Juventus has won eight Scudetti in a row and Ronaldo was aiming to add to his already five Champions League trophies between Manchester United and Real Madrid.

But the report claims the scenario has changed from being ‘the deal of the century’ for Juventus to almost become ‘a prisoner’ of their star.

Ronaldo’s deal expires in 2022, but Calciomercato.com reports the forward will meet with the club after the season to discuss the future.

Juventus are, according to the outlet, ready to say farewell to the Portuguese star, but there are a couple of aspects to consider.

There are no concrete offers and there’s a problem with taxes. The report reveals that if Ronaldo leaves Turin, he would be forced to give up the fiscal benefits that only Italy can offer.
