Balague said that Ronaldo has been offered to every club, which includes Barcelona.
“He’s been offered everywhere, including Barcelona. I’m not sure if they can get rid of him easily with the kind of money he earns. Who is going to pay that kind of money?”, Balague said.
Adding further Balague revealed that Ronaldo was earlier offered to Real Madrid, who declined the offer.
“We have seen this over the last months, we have seen links with Real Madrid, Madrid said ‘no chance! He’s not coming back. There have been talks about MLS etcetera because Juventus wants to get rid of that wage. It’s as drastic as that,” Balague added further.
