Reports have suggested Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus this summer with his fellow Manchester United team-mate Nani revealing a private conversation between the duo

Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo told his former Manchester United team-mate Nani that he will “probably end up in America”.

Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018 to join Juventus though reports suggest he could leave the Serie A giants amid financial problems due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At 35, Ronaldo is certainly entering the final years of his career though the Portuguese forward has previously spoke about playing into his forties.

And his compatriot Nani, who now plays in the MLS for Orlando City, has opened up on a conversation between the pair with Ronaldo admitting he could head to the US.

“A couple of years ago, he told me that he will probably end up in America,” Nani told ESPN.

“It’s not 100 per cent but probably. There is a chance.”

“It is a great league. Obviously there are points where we must improve as a league, even in the quality of the players.

“Here you have fantastic clubs, well organised with fantastic conditions, great coaches, great players. You see every season improving.

“I think we all have the conditions in this league. We are in a great country. Everything is around us. It is all about being better, not being afraid to improve.”

On retirement, Ronaldo has previously said: “Much will depend on what I feel, on my motivation. Physically it will never be a problem.

“I am treating myself well and I think can play safely up to 40 years.

“The most important factor, honestly, will be more psychological – that will be the one that makes the difference.

“In any case, everything has a beginning and an end. I won’t last a lifetime but I still feel strong enough to continue winning.

“I will stop if I have no incentives.”
