Think hes going to leave for PSG, he wants one more CL.
Why would PSG want him? They've already got Mbappe and Neymar, they don't need to add a 35 year old Ronaldo who can barely run anymore

PSG or Bayern would be the smart move.

He is still a top 3 player in the world as he has shown this season and would make any of those teams immediate favorites for the CL

Looked at their starting line up and must admit I was surprised to see their side looks shit. Apart from Ronaldo, there's not one player in their front 6 that I rate.

He can't pull miracles out of his ass every damn time. He's been there for the team once again, for the unpteenth time. I've lost track the number of times he's dragged 10 other men out of the mud.

You can spend the next 5 pages discussing whatever you want about his technical quality, I don't watch him for his technical competence, I watch him for everything else. He was the difference maker for Juventus tonight, yet again, regardless of the final outcome.

Scored all the last 7 CL-Knockout-Goals from Juve in the last 2 years.

It's difficult, if you are the only player at Juve.

He honestly should go straight to the board and tell them to feck Sarri off or he leaves.

I'd take Dybala and I do like Rabiot, but ye, apart from that, not much else. Think their squad's age is finally catching up with them. That being said, they got some fecking weapon defenders, we should be keeping tracks, some of them can't even get into the squad

What a complete waste

Starting the biggest game of the season next to a finished Higuain and freaking Bernardeschi and ending the game playing with Olivieri(who?)... Juve better spend some money this summer that's for sure.

Losing to Lyon isn't as bad as what would have happened to them if they played City so the result ends up being the best thing about this incredibly depressing Juve season.

Just want to see Scholes hit a volley.
It was like watching a man stuck with pensioners. Sarri is an idiot. The fact Higuin gets to play with Ronaldo, what more can I say.

He was doing it all today: dribbling past defenders, scoring goals. Even a half decent side and they've gone through.

He was very good in the 2nd half and clearly tried very hard but neither his teammates nor his manager were up for it.

Teammates matter in football. Who would've thought, eh? Hopefully a good lesson for the Ronaldo fanboys.

Ronaldo must be thinking of leaving. He will probably win more Scudetti if he stays. Still he looks the level above anyone else at Juve besides Dybala. The fact he's starting alongside Higuain says it all. Higuain was done years ago.

Don't quite get this.
Probably in reference to the criticism Messi got for not single-handedly dragging Barca to a CL win the last few years. As tonight shows, there's only so much one player can do if the rest of your team doesn't perform.

Messi has not once played in a team as poor as this one. Higuin is 32. He was 25 when playing with Messi in Argentina.

? He has done these comebacks "on his own" for YEARS now and he almost did it again in back to back season. There has never been a more clutch performer in the game.

A Alien invasion.
United would be the smart move. He could take the boys under his wing.
No. I like how these players are moving forward together,collectively and individually. These guys no longer need a Ibra type mentor,nor do they need someone to hold their hands.
They're now mature enough to take us forward.

This current Barcelona runs it close though.

Can't compare that squad with what Barca has fielded in the last 20 years. fecking Higuain wouldn't be fit to clean their toilets.

Needs to leave immediately - prime Ronaldo couldn’t carry this bunch of wasters. Like the PSG suggestion.. would fit them like a glove.

Ends the season with 37 goals in 46 games. All of Juve's CL knockout goals in the last 2 years, 7 goals, were scored by Ronaldo, scored in 4 of 6 games.

On the Juventuz fan forums his thread is filled with universal praise right now. On all the other players threads they are all being shredded to pieces. I'm one for giving quite a bit of weight into different kinds of praise, and this says a whole lot. He's done it for 15 years in every possible team and configuration.

That Move would benefit both of them.

Great City and Ronaldo lifts there brand even more.

He would make them immediate favorites in the CL and they more then likely would win it as well.

PSG wins the CL and solidify themselves as footballing giants.

They all say he should go request a transfer because the club has failed him.

They are not wrong. The best player in the world chooses to play for you and you cant even put a half decent midfield behind him?

They got him to win the CL and he did his part by scoring every goal for them in the knockout stages. Brought them back from the dead vs Atletico and he was whiskers away from doing it yet again tonight.

He simply leaves you lost for words this man.
