Ronaldo: What Next?

Ronaldo just needs to keep doing what he's doing. Juve's problems are those around the No.7, and not necessarily with the Portuguese superstar.

Juventus are a mess at the moment, but Ronaldo, along with Federico Chiesa, keeping the Bianconeri in the race to make the top four.

Whether he wants to stay in Turin for a final season remains to be seen, but Ronaldo will be a professional until the end of the season, and is currently top of the Serie A scoring charts. .
