Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed his future at the club following their historic title win.
The Old Lady secured their eighth successive Serie A title following a 2-1 victory over Fiorentina on Saturday.
Ronaldo at Juventus: Five things you need to know…
- Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus last summer from Real Madrid for €100 million.
- The former Manchester United star has made 38 appearances this season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions.
- The 34-year-old has won two trophies this season with Juventus, confirming the Serie A title today.
- Juventus have already won the Supercoppa Italiana earlier in the campaign.
- Rumours had started to emerge of a potential departure for Ronaldo after just one season in Italy.
The five-time Champions League winner – four times with Madrid, once with United – wasn’t on the scoresheet today in Juventus’ 2-1 win against Fiorentina that secured the Serie A title but he has played a big part in this season’s success.
19 of his goals have come in the league and only three players – Fabio Quagliarella (22), Krzysztof Piatek (21) and Duván Zapata (20) have scored more than the 2016 European Championships winner.

With rumours starting to circulate regarding the forward’s future, Ronaldo has been quick to dampen any such talk by telling reporters that his future remains with the Italian champions.
Ronaldo said: “I will stay to #Juventus next season for sure, 1000%”
Earlier in the day, Ronaldo was quoted saying: “For me, there is only Juventus,” further cementing the claims that he will remain with Juventus for the foreseeable future.

Ronaldo is a record breaker
There isn’t a single football supporter on the planet who can honestly admit that they do not hold Ronaldo’s footballing talents in the highest regard.
It has taken Ronaldo just one season to win his first Italian league title but the 34-year-old has a habit of picking up league medals throughout his career.

Juventus’ success today means that Ronaldo is the first player to win league titles in Italy, England and Spain.
Ronaldo won three Premier League titles throughout his spell in England with Manchester United and a further two league titles following his move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Only Jose Mourinho – as a manager of course – has achieved the same success.
The former Manchester United manager won league titles with Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
Only two men have won the top-flight title in England, Italy and Spain.

But for Ronaldo, can he can one better?
Does he fancy the Bundesliga next? Eredivisie? Chinese Super League?
Time will tell!
