Cristiano intent on fulfilling Juventus contract
However, AS understands that the Portuguese forward is unaware of any such plans on the part of the Serie A champions and has no intention of leaving the Allianz Stadium, where he is happy.

PSG could sign star but he's "out of reach" right now - Leonardo
Paris Saint-Germain are among the clubs who have been linked with a move for Cristiano, and sporting director Leonardo did not rule out a swoop when he told a recent interview that the Parisians are in the “closed circle” of four or five teams able to sign the star.
However, he added: "It’s normal that this possibility is talked about although due to the craziness of the market he is not within reach at the moment."
Those close to Cristiano agree that an approach from PSG is unlikely as things stand, although they also say: “Let’s see what happens with the vaccine for covid-19. That could really change the transfer market in football.”
Cristiano not interested in Manchester United return
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the financial struggles many clubs are enduring is an obstacle currently facing Juve if they do opt to offload the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.
One of the clubs who it is thought could afford a move for Cristiano are Manchester United, who are reported to be interested in taking the forward back to Old Trafford, where he spent six successful years before joining Real Madrid in 2009.
But although Cristiano retains great affection for United, he is understood to be against re-signing for the Red Devils as he feels his time at the club is in the past.
