Cristiano Ronaldo's future is up in the air at Juventus with his time in Turin looking like it could be up.

It comes after a disappointing season for the Old Lady, who sacked Andrea Pirlo after they finished fourth in Serie A and crashed out of the Champions League to Porto.

With Ronaldo desperate to win the top prizes, a departure is on the cards – while Juve may also cash in to alleviate themselves of his €31m-a-year salary.

And the 36-year-old is not short of options, though a return to Real Madrid has already been ruled out by president Florentino Perez.

Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Juventus this summer

He told El Chiringuito in April: " Cristiano Ronaldo will not come back to Real Madrid. It does not make sense, he has a contract with Juventus. I love him a lot, he has given us a lot."

However, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are potential destinations for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner.

According to Marca, Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes has flown to Italy to negotiate an exit from Juventus.

He has been with the Portuguese forward for a number of years now, successfully earning him moves to United, Real Madrid and, most recently, Juve – all for mega fees with big wages.

If successful, a major pay packet awaits Ronaldo at PSG or United – who are both prepared to tempt the Serie A giants with players in a potential swap deal.

Marca further report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would throw Paul Pogba into a deal that would see them return to their former clubs.

The Frenchman's future is also up in the air as he enters the final year of his contract, while speculation over his time at the club has long dragged on for several seasons.

Juve have always been keen on bringing back the 27-year-old, while Pogba has also hinted in the past he would not be against a move to Italy.

United fans would love to see Ronaldo return to Old Trafford, with many believing he has unfinished business at the club.

He won the first of his five Ballon d'Ors and his first Champions League medal, both in 2008, while with the Red Devils before signing for Real Madrid for a then-world record fee of £80m.

However, PSG could trump the Red Devils to his signing with a prospect of one of the most dangerous frontlines to ever be seen in football.

The report states that Mendes has been in France to speak with the Ligue 1 outfit – who would boast an attack of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Ronaldo if all goes to plan.

Mauro Icardi would be used as a makeweight as per the deal, who knows Italy well after playing there with Inter Milan and Sampdoria.

With Ronaldo still with Portugal at the Euros, any deal will likely take place after the tournament finishes.
