Paratici assures Juventus fans: No doubt Ronaldo here next season

Juventus chief Fabio Paratici insists there's no danger of losing Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo was named Serie A Player of the Year in Milan on the night he finished runner-up to Barcelona ace Lionel Messi in the Ballon d'Or count.

Paratici said on the red carpet of the Gran Gala awards: “I smile because there are other problems. He wanted this award [Serie A MVP] because he is an ambitious person and he wants to show he is also the best here.

“In our opinion he deserves the Ballon d'Or. He will be at Juventus next season, without a doubt.

“He wants to win another Ballon d'Or with us, and we support him."

On January, Paratici added: “We won't buy anyone in January, not even player sales, with the exception of maybe [Mario] Mandzukic."

He also said of Paulo Dybala's contract talks.

“We're not talking about a renewal, we'll talk about it when the time is right."
