The Portuguese had a unique bond with his ex-Real Madrid boss and has reportedly found a similar feeling with his current Juve coach.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future has become an intensely speculated topic as of late amid reports that Juventus are ready to get him off their books at the end of the season.

A sensational return to Real Madrid has been mooted for the 35-year-old while rumors have also linked him with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Should he quit, his loss will certainly be felt by the Italian giants as he has helped them to back-to-back Serie A titles and scored an astonishing 60 goals in 69 league outings.

However, a recent report by Tuttosport suggests the Juve fans can relax as Ronaldo plans on staying at the club until at least 2022.

Ronaldo is keen on continuing at Juventus after, as the report adds, developing a relationship with Pirlo similar to the one he had with Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid.

The report claims that he has been impressed by new boss Andrea Pirlo’s ‘humility’ and ‘ideas’ and intends to help him succeed in his initial year as a coach.

Additionally, Pirlo is also prepared to allow the superstar to achieve his personal goals and honor his current contract, which runs until June 2022.
