Tottenham fans react to surprise links with Cristiano Ronaldo
Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave the club this summer and Tottenham Hotspur has been mentioned as a possible destination.
According to SportItalia’s Michele Criscitiello, Max Allegri does not want Ronaldo to be part of a squad this season and the Portugal international is also keen to move on.
The 36-year-old is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world but a return to the Premier League would be quite surprising, especially with Spurs.
Ronaldo scored 36 goals in all competitions last season.
Recently, the player has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. Ronaldo even took to social media to express his displeasure with the constant transfer links.
If Ronaldo leaves Juventus this summer, it would be fair to assume that he will be looking to join a club that plays in the Champions League. Tottenham cannot provide him with that platform.
Moreover, Londoners will also find it difficult to pay his huge salary. A move to the London club seems unrealistic in many ways.
There is no doubt that Tottenham have to sign a top goalscorer this summer, but a decision by Ronaldo can be safely ruled out.
Here’s what Spurs fans had to say about the links.
Paratici knows the logistics of a deal with Ronaldo. Just do it.

It has as much credibility as I do to become an astronaut and fly to Mars!
