Cristiano Ronaldo could make a reunion with Manchester United next summer if Juventus fail to finish in the top four of the Serie A and qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.

They are level on points and matches with fifth-placed AC Milan, who play Juventus in a potential Champions League decider next month. If Juventus lose their hopes of securing Champions League football for next season could well be over.

According to a report from Tuttosport, Ronaldo is not ready to play in the Europa League next season and is looking for a new club where he can challenge for a sixth Champions League title.

The 36-year-old Portuguese is contracted at Juventus until 2022 but will not stay at the club if Juventus fail to qualify for the Champions League.
The club would also find it difficult to afford the five-time Ballon d’Or winner if they fail to secure UCL football for next season. Ronaldo’s current contract is worth 27 million Pounds and Juventus would find it difficult to keep Ronaldo at the club without revenue from the Champions League.
