Pirlo speculates on Ronaldo's future & reveals Chelsea snub for being ‘very old’

A Juventus icon admits a man currently starring for the Bianconeri will have several options to consider when the time comes to leave Turin

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to have plenty of options to consider when the time comes to leave Serie A champions Juventus, says Andrea Pirlo, with it possible that the Portuguese superstar could remain in Europe or head to MLS or Asia.

A five-time Ballon d’Or winner has completed his first season in Italy and made history by adding a title in a third country to his impressive collection of silverware.

The 34-year-old has stated that he will be back for more with the Bianconeri in 2019-20, but speculation is already attempting to predict his next move.

Former Juve star Pirlo is aware of the numerous options being discussed and admits anything could happen, amid links to former club Manchester United and a possible new adventure elsewhere.

The Italian icon told the Daily Mail when asked where Ronaldo's career path will take him: “I don't know.

“He has two or three years on his contract with Juventus and after then it's possible that he comes to the USA or to another country.

“I was very happy to play here [in America]. It was an important experience for me, for my family.”

Pirlo added on the impact that Ronaldo has made in Italy, with 28 goals and 13 assists recorded in 43 games across all competitions: “I was surprised [when he joined] because it's very difficult to get Ronaldo to Juventus but it's important for Serie A. 

“He improves the league, he improves the other teams. It's important for the country.

“We hope that Ronaldo is a trendsetter and more big names will follow him.”
