There is currently little clarity over Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Juventus. But recent reports suggest that the Portuguese might end up staying with the Italian giants beyond his current contract.

Ronaldo's contract with the club has another year left on it, as a result of which rumors of his exit have been rife. However, as per a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport via Calciomercato, Ronaldo might extend his stay with Juventus.

The aforementioned report claims that Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes is keen to extend his client's stay in Turin. The former Real Madrid man could sign a one-year extension on his current contract with Juventus and might even take a paycut.

Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United have been linked with moves for Ronaldo. It looks highly unlikely, however, that the two clubs will go in big for the Portuguese in the ongoing transfer window.
