Juventus this season has been weak both in the domestic league and in the European competition. But they are still the Serie A champions. This is too early to write them off for next season.

The 2019/20 season is over for us, much later than usual but yet sooner than we expected. Now it’s time for reflection, time to analyse the ups and downs because critical thinking is the only way to improve. A huge club such as Juventus must always think like the best in the world, work like the best in the world, so that we can call ourselves one of the best and biggest clubs in the world. Winning the Serie A once again in such a difficult year is something that we are very proud of. Personally, scoring 37 goals for Juventus and 11 for the Portuguese National Team is something that makes me face the future with renewed ambition and desire to keep doing better and better each year. But the fans demand more from us. They expect more from us. And we have to deliver, we must live up to the highest expectations. May this short vacation break allow us all to make the best decisions for the future and come back stronger and more committed than ever. . See you soon! 💪🏼👊🏼
For the straight two seasons, Juventus couldn’t come close to winning the Champions League and Ronaldo failed to add a sixth one to his name. He had an incredible season but he is fond of winning trophies.
On the other hand the potential destination for Cristiano Ronaldo, PSG has won four trophies in the 2019/20 campaign. It might look like a possible environment for Ronaldo.
