Cristiano Ronaldo’s Man Utd exit left Juventus boss furious as he ‘wasn’t told’

Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Manchester United left Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri “furious” as he “wasn’t even told”.

The Portuguese forward has returned to Old Trafford after 12 years, having played for Real Madrid and spent the last three seasons with the Italian side.

And his move back to the Premier League happened in only a few days.

Originally heading to Manchester City, the forward left the Serie A side’s training ground on Wednesday to force through his exit.

He was on a plane to Lisbon the following day, where the Red Devils entered negotiations with Jorge Mendes and announced the deal at the end of the day.

While Juventus took a £12.85million (€15m) fee with another £6.86m (€8m) in add-ons, Italian outlet Il Giornale [via The Sun] have reported that Allegri was not in the loop.

The manager has been left 'furious' with the Old Lady’s club president Andrea Agnelli and sporting director Federico Cherubini as he 'wasn't even told' about the deal.

He returned to the club at the start of July to replace Andrea Pirlo following a 2020/21 campaign which saw the club finish fourth in the league and get knocked out of the Champions League round-of-16.

And Allegri has reportedly fumed at the upper management that the sale of Ronaldo was ‘not the agreements' that saw him return.

The club have not made many changes to the squad Pirlo left behind, with Weston McKennie their biggest spending.

Moise Kean and Manuel Locatelli are on the books but they have only been signed on loans from Everton and Sassuolo respectively.

Ronaldo joined the Old Lady after nine seasons at Real, scoring 450 goals in 438 games to win four Champions League honours and take his Ballon d’Or tally to five.

Signing on for £89m in 2018, the 36-year-old added 101 more goals to his tally in 134 games as well as two Serie A honours.

And the forward had an emotional message for the Juventus fans, which he shared last week on his 337m-follower Instagram account.
