Juventus Chief Football Officer Fabio Paratici attended Sky Sports before this evening's game agaimnst Cagliari. Paratici responded to rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo's possible departure from the Italian giants at the end of the season: “The idea of makes me want to burst out laughing… During my career, I have never once thought that I would have to discuss whether Cristiano was a good signing or not. I grew up in a small village listening to those kinds of discussions in bars, with people talking about Rivera, Mazzola and Platini. He is the Capocannoniere of Serie A, he's won the Ballon d'Or, the Champions League and he's already won several trophies with us. It's a privilege to have him here, he represents our future, without any doubt at all,” Paratici explained, before discussing other matters.

The team's current situation: “We have to treat this season as an atypical one, it's difficult to be at 100% all of the time with so many commitments in such a difficult situation”.

The future: “We have a lot of league games plus the Coppa Italia ahead of us. We have to think about the present, although it's obvious that many of our younger players will improve with time, as is usually the case. Kulusevski could be one of those”.
