One of the greatest footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo, has reportedly decided that he wants to leave Juventus and has decided the four clubs he is willing to sign for.
Ronaldo has enjoyed three successful seasons in the Serie A since leaving Real Madrid, scoring 81 goals in 98 league appearances and helping the Old Lady to two titles.
The Portugal captain has had an incredible career, winning the Ballon d’Or five times, the Champions League five times and leading his country to glory at Euro 2016.
But as he enters the final year of his contract in Turin, the 36-year-old is believed to have told Juve that he would like to leave the club and conclude his career elsewhere.
Speaking on Twitch, Fabrizio Romano has said that Ronaldo has spoken with Juve and made them aware of their intentions, but the club wants him to stay.
He has also said that he only wants to play for Premier League clubs that are playing Champions League football this season.
Therefore, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United are Ronaldo’s only options if manager Massimiliano Allegri lets the striker depart.

The revelations mean that Ronaldo could return to Old Trafford after 12 years away.
Ronaldo was signed by Sir Alex Ferguson for just £12m from Sporting CP in 2003, he scored 84 in 196 appearances after that, helping the Red Devils to three consecutive Premier League titles.
In July, Gazzetta reported that Juventus would be willing to let Ronaldo leave for just £25m, just over a quarter of the price they paid for him in 2018.
If City’s pursuit of Spurs’ wantaway striker Harry Kane fails then they could be tempted by the potential availability of Ronaldo.

Cityzens boss Pep Guardiola praised Ronaldo earlier this year and spoke of how he felt his side lacked a player of his quality.
Speaking in February, he said: “We don't have players who can win the game by himself – we don't have a [Lionel] Messi, a Cristiano, [Kylian] Mbappe or Neymar. We have to do it as a team.
"I'll be honest, I would love to have a player who scores every single game four goals and runs like these players run, I would love it.”
However, jumping ships and playing for Manchester City could ruin Ronaldo’s relationship with United makes the move unlikely.
