Cristiano Ronaldo could create a domino effect in the transfer market

10 Jul 2018

Atransfer to Juventus for Cristiano Ronaldo would shake up European football, with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner potentially starting a domino effect in the market.

Juventus are looking at ways of adding to their strengths by building an even greater team with the Portuguese forward at the heart of it, though in Italy they have spoken about the potential exit of Gonzalo Higuain from the Bianconeri in order to fund the arrival of Ronaldo.

The future of the Argentine looks set to be in London, with Chelsea having agreed a deal worth 60 million euros, according to Mediaset.

This could lead to a potential reunion with Maurizio Sarri, who has been heavily linked with taking over from Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

The arrival of Higuain at Chelsea would also lead to a bit of overcrowding in the striker department and Alvaro Morata looks the most likely to be moving on, as injuries hampered a bright start to life at Stamford Bridge, culminating in Olivier Giroud displacing the Spaniard from the starting line-up at the end of the season.

Morata could be set to move to Germany, and more specifically to Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians are keeping tabs on the 25-year-old, as well as Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, with Robert Lewandowski potentially looking to leave the Allianz Arena, though it will not be an easy exit for the Pole.

Lewandowski has been openly flirting with Real Madrid for months and, despite Bayern coach Nico Kovac stating that he will remain at the club, the poor World Cup performance of the striker who turns 30 in August will make it difficult for the Germans to demand an outrageous fee if Los Blancos come knocking.

If Ronaldo’s move to Juventus does become official, Real Madrid will surely need a Galactico to appease the fans and to remain at an elite level, though there are few players like this in the world.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Harry Kane are three who continue to be linked, though it will be extremely difficult to replicate the goals, performances and leadership of Ronaldo on the pitch.
