Cristiano Ronaldo has given no indication that he wants to leave Juventus and is expected to be back in Turin later this month, club director Pavel Nedved said on Wednesday.

“Cristiano is on holiday. We have no signal from his entourage that he wants to leave. We’re waiting for him and he will return around July 25th as scheduled,” Nedved said.

The 36-year-old Portuguese professional footballer has one year left in his contract. His future had been in doubt after a difficult campaign during which Juventus lost their Serie A crown after nine years and exited the Champions League in the last 16. They only sealed fourth place and elite European football on the last day. 

Juventus open next season at Udinese with Massimilano Allegri fired up as he returns as coach after two years. He was sacked despite winning five consecutive league titles with the Turin club.

“There was a certain routine with Allegri for a period of five years,” said Nedved. “Then he went for two years to take a little holiday but now he’s back with great motivation.”
