Rumours have suggested that Ronaldo could join Real Madrid or PSG. The transfer market ding dong continues to chime as the market races to its end. The heavyweights continue to shadowbox in the dark while they drop anecdotes with hints as to whichction they're going. Names are bandied, and the superstars are never far from their lips.

The usual suspects with pockets deep enough to scare the central bank, and reputations hinging on deep history, are placed on the line.

With Lionel Messi's future sorted, it's time for his eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo to hug the spotlight. After all, what is a 'ying' without the 'yang'?

Several rumours have linked Cristiano Ronaldo with a move away from Juventus, with his former stomping ground Real Madrid and oil-rich Paris St Germain described as his landing point.

Ronaldo in the eye of the storm

No press is bad press, especially if you're a superstar that needs to be in the spotlight. Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has come out to set the records straight as to where his future lies.

Amidst the constant use of his name and linking him to his past and future, the UEFA Champions League all-time top scorer has labelled it disrespectful to his person.

Following the denial of Real Madrid's manager Carlo Ancelotti of intending to bring him back to the Santiago Bernabeu, the 36-year-old has debunked all the rumours that have linked him away from Juventus.

Setting the records straight

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Ronaldo expressed his disappointment at the whole saga. He faulted the frivolous way his future is covered in the media. It is disrespectful to all the clubs involved in these rumours. It is also impolite to their players and staff, Ronaldo said.

On Real Madrid, the mercurial goal scorer added that his story at the club has been written. Elucidating further, he said, "it is in words and numbers, in trophies and titles, in records and headlines. It's in the Museum at the Bernabeu Stadium, and it's also in the minds of every fan of the club.

Factors behind the buzz

Kylian Mbappe is a figure of interest in Real Madrid. The player's contract situation at PSG has generated a lot of talk over his future, which seems to increasingly lie away from Paris. A transfer merry-go-round between PSG, Real Madrid and Juventus may ensue should he depart the Parc des Princes.

Ronaldo is seen as act replacement for the young Mbappe. Thea of pitching Ronaldo, Messi and Neymar in an all-star attacking lineup has always excited the club owner Al Khelaifi.

Ronaldo has also been linked to Manchester United and Manchester City, with the latter unlikely to happen should the opportunity present itself.

Buttressing Ronaldo's stance of remaining at Juventus is Ancelotti's denial of the claims linking him to Real Madrid.

The Instagram post summarizes that Ronaldo will remain at Juventus.
