Ronaldo Left Out Of Starting Lineup, Fuels Rumors

Jonathan Grant | August 23rd, 2021

Much of the summer in the world of soccer has been dedicated to whether or not Lionel Messi would be staying at Barcelona or leaving to go elsewhere. He ended up moving to PSG due to financial complications beyond his control. Now… it looks like Cristiano Ronaldo could be set to move somewhere else as well.

The Boston Globe

Rumors had been swirling that he would leave Juventus, but those were knocked back by those at the Italian super club. Those only got turned upon Sunday, though, when the Portuguese was left out of the starting lineup against Udinese. Some are reporting that was by his own request… At any rate, he did come into the game with 30 minutes left only to score a goal that was overturned by VAR and then get yellow carded for celebrating it. It’s a very interesting time in the game, and now you have to wonder whether anyone can afford him if he indeed wants to move.
