Reports in Italy claim Juventus could be open to parting ways with Ronaldo this summer through a direct trade deal.

Juventus would reportedly consider swapping Cristiano Ronaldo in exchange for either Paul Pogba or Mauro Icardi.

With Ronaldo’s contract to expire in 2022, the Portuguese star can depart Turin next year as a free agent unless he leaves this summer. Should he go, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are his two most probable destinations.

According to Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus would consider allowing their prized asset to leave in one of the following two swap deals.

Paul Pogba

Manchester United are reportedly keeping tabs on Ronaldo.

Juventus are aware of this and would be open to offering CR7 in a direct swap deal involving former Bianconeri midfielder Pogba.

The Red Devils legend, however, may have to accept a pay cut to ease a return to Old Trafford this summer.

Mauro Icardi

If Kylian Mbappe leaves Paris Saint-Germain this summer, Ronaldo is the reported favorite to replace the striker.

Therefore, Juventus would consider allowing PSG to take their star player if Icardi is included in a swap deal. The Argentine has been a long-term target for the club. Although no official talks have taken place.

Icardi also claimed last week that his future lies with PSG, making this transfer rumor an unlikely prospect.
