Former Juventus chief Luciano Moggi has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo has “already signed” for the record Italian champions.
Increasing reports this week have linked the Portuguese star with a move to the Serie A.
The Italian and Spanish media have since claimed Ronaldo, 33 has accepted to move while both Real and Juve negotiate a transfer sum believed to be around €100 million.
Fueling the speculations further, Moggi, who was given a life ban from football after the 2006 Calciopoli scandal, took to Twitter writing that “Ronaldo has already signed for Juve and undergone medicals in Munich.”
“This is my belief after talking with some important people,” he added in a subsequent interview with Tele7Gold.
But Juventus General Manager Giuseppe Marotta has refused to comment on speculation.
Asked by Sky Sports Italia whether Juventus fans “could dream of Ronaldo,” Marotta said: I will not speak [about the speculation].”
Spanish media outlet AS has also reported sources close to Ronaldo as saying he had accepted an offer of an annual wage of €30m after tax.
According to TV show “El Chiringuito de Jugones,” Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes was in Madrid on Wednesday for a meeting with president Florentino Perez and director general Jose Angel Sanchez.
