Antoine Griezmann could replace Cristiano Ronaldo if Juventus fail to qualify for the UEFA Champions League
Juventus will face Bologna in a very crucial last day fixture of the Serie A season. This match will decide their qualification for UEFA Champions League.
If Juve fail to qualify for the UCL, Cristiano Ronaldo might leave the club and could be replaced by Antoine Griezmann according to the reports.
Griezmann has been heavily criticized for failing to replicate his Atletico Madrid form at the Camp Nou. His current deal with Barcelona will expire in 2024.
But the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has been linked with a potential return to Atletico. He has also attracted Liverpool’s management after the transfer rumors.

Sporting president Frederico Varandas has cleared his intentions on Ronaldo’s transfer. He said that he will be happy to see the Portuguese back to his old club.
“I think he will play here one day,” said Varandas.
“Cristiano was among the first to send me a message to congratulate us for the championship victory.
“Now, however, he has another year on his contract with Juve and I know he wants to continue competing to win the Champions League.
“Obviously, his return here depends on him: in addition to being a great player, Cristiano is a great fan of Sporting.”
