CRISTIANO RONALDO will decide his Juventus future in the next couple of days, according to reports.
The 36-year-old has just one year left on his contract and his future is believed to depend on whether Kylian Mbappe stays at Paris Saint-Germain.
According to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport, Ronaldo is expected to arrive in Turin very shortly to discuss his future with Juventus.
The forward, who is currently on holiday in Mallorca, reportedly wants to find a new club but his options are limited.
Paris is thought to be the only realistic destination, although it’s believed the French club will NOT make a move unless Mbappe leaves.
The 22-year-old striker has just a year remaining on his existing deal and rumours suggest he wants to join Real Madrid.
Mbappe’s departure would pave the way for Ronaldo to join PSG – yet the Spanish giants are said to be having financial difficulties.
A lack of cash could stop Real signing the Frenchman this summer and instead try to get him on a free transfer at the end of the coming season.
If Mbappe does leave PSG, that may allow for a reported swap deal involving Ronaldo and Mauro Icardi to be completed.
Juventus are thought to be admirers of the 28-year-old striker, who scored 111 goals in 188 Serie A games during a six-year spell at Inter Milan.

The Italian giants reportedly want to reduce Ronaldo’s £900,000-a-week salary and Icardi would be a much cheaper option.
But Juventus director and legend Pavel Nedved has publicly insisted the club want to keep the Portugal captain, casting doubt over a potential exit.
And Ronaldo’s team-mate Danilo claims the player will STAY in Turin next season as Juve look to reclaim their Serie A crown from Inter.
