Italian media such as Tuttosport, have been optimistic to land the showbiz footballer and have already published their cover pages with the pictures of Ronaldo by welcoming him. Some stores have also started selling Ronaldo’s number 7 jersey in the striped colors of Juventus.
Amidst all the rumors and exaggeration the fans of Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo have been trying their best to show their admiration for the player and want him to stay. The hashtag #CristianoQuedate has been trending on various platforms which translates in English to Cristiano Stay.

“Let’s see what happens, I don’t think he’s going to leave, and I’d like him to stay because he’s the best player in the world. I can’t imagine Cristiano Ronaldo at any other club”
The same was posted by the fan profile of Ronaldo on Instagram and the close friend of Cristiano Ronaldo, Ricky Regufe liked the post which has caused a stir amongst the fans who interpret as a possibility of Ronaldo staying in the Spanish side.
