Who can replace Cristiano Ronaldo? Perhaps nobody. A 36-year-old that has scored over 600 goals is not easy to replace, neither to find. But Juventus can’t sleep on their trophies and must have a replacement in sight, just in case. They have found it, and it could arrive to Turin in any moment. Let us find out.
First, he will be under serious pressure given Cristiano Ronaldo’s extraordinary performance in the ongoing season: 16 goals in 18 games for Serie A, four in five matches for UEFA Champions League, two in three Coppa Italia games and one netting in the Italian Super Cup final. Not an easy benchmark at all.
But despite that, we are sure that Memphis Depay would love to move from Lyon to Turin once his current contract with Olympique OL expires at the end of this season. The 27-year-old from Netherlands has joined his actual team four years ago, after being acquired in the winter transfer market in 2017. After an initial interest from Barcelona, and allegedly from Real Madrid, his new GPS target could be in Italy.
Now, how much are we talking about considering it would be a free transfer? Once that step is sorted, of course, there is a salary. Local newspaper Il Corriere di Torino states the club has already offered a four year contract earning €5 million per each season which would represent $6.05 million per year. Is he changing from white to white and black?
