See Shocking Reason Why Cristiano Ronaldo Will Not Play Against Former Club Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly have to wait to face his former Real Madrid team-mates as he will sit out Juventus’ summer tour. The Serie A outfit completed a £100million switch for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner following Portugal’s World Cup exit.

And according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo has been given permission to sit out of the pre-season US trip.

Juventus will face Bayern Munich in Philadelphia on July 25 and Benfica in New York on July 28. They then take on an MLS All-Star line-up in Atalanta before the clash with Real in Washington D.C. on August 4.

Fans would have hoped to see Ronaldo, 33, face Los Blancos just weeks after quitting the Bernanbeu.

But AS has backed up La Gazzetta dello Sport’s claim, insisting the decision to let him sit out was made after long talks with Juve chief Max Allegri and his staff.

After making his move, Ronaldo – who will earn £26m a season with Juve – said: “It wasn’t a very difficult decision to take.

“I prefer to think of me in the present – the present is very clear, I enjoy football, I am still rather young and I have always like challenges in my life.

“So from Sporting, to Manchester to Real, it was a dream, I didn’t really think I would win so many titles individually or at a club. “I think this new challenge will be as good as the others. It is just one new step in my career.”
