Ronaldo who has been one of the most important players for Juventus only has a year left on his contract. While Juve and the Portuguese have had some success domestically, they have had their fair share of struggles in the European competitions.

Despite Ronaldo’s goal scoring exploits, a lack luster squad has meant that Juve have fallen off a cliff. With the Italian giants not making any major signings, the 36-year-old is eager to move away from the club.

While Ronaldo is a generational goal-scoring talent the 5-time Ballon D’or winner is on a hefty contract. With a contract that pays him 31 million per year, only a super European team can afford the superstar. After signing free agents like Leo Messi and Sergio Ramos PSG might not be able to afford such high wages right now.

The Parisians have a super-team right now and Ronaldo could have been the icing on the cake. A team containing Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar might have been a dream team. But bringing in Ronaldo without breaking FFP looks pretty much impossible.

Scoring more than 780 goals in his career, the Portuguese really has nothing else to prove and is an instant positive to any team he moves to. But the biggest problem is his hefty wage bill the 36-year-old demands.

With the Portuguese reportedly eying a move away from Juve, getting potential suitors right now might be a tough task. Where do you think will the 36-year-old end up in?
