Report: Juventus could go after Arsenal player in red-hot form if Ronaldo leaves
Cristiano Ronaldo has asked to leave Juventus and the Old Lady have identified a replacement – in Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Ronaldo, 36, has asked to leave Juventus after scoring 101 goals in 134 games for The Old Lady. He wants a change, ahead of Tuesday’s deadline.
Juventus have identified the man they want to bring in, if a club can strike a deal for Ronaldo in the next few days. TMW claim it is Aubameyang.
Having missed the 2-0 defeat to Brentford, and then only appeared as a substitute against Chelsea – Aubameyang scored a hat-trick on Wednesday.
Clearly, he is in form, reminding all what he can do. But the report says he wants to leave Arsenal if the opportunity arises. Juve could give him that.
Aubameyang replacing Ronaldo: Arsenal must allow Juventus move
Ronaldo looks as though he will get his move, but whether Manchester City will strike a move for the Portugal legend remains to be seen.
If Pep Guardiola’s side do not want Ronaldo, having missed out on Harry Kane, then who else could buy him? Real Madrid, perhaps.
But Ronaldo’s old side are focused on signing Kylian Mbappe and reports say Madrid are now in talks with PSG – after increasing their initial offer.
Perhaps PSG could replace Mbappe with Ronaldo? Time will tell. But for Arsenal, if Juve pursue Aubameyang, they have simply got to cash in.
The Gunners need to rid themselves of their big wage earners and Aubameyang is that. Bring in a replacement on a smaller wage.
