Juventus insist they are expecting Cristiano Ronaldo to see out the final year of his contract in Turin.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 101 goals in 133 games since joining the Bianconeri in 2018 from Real Madrid.
The Portuguese superstar, 36, has been linked with a summer exit, including potential switches to former club Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
Questions continue to revolve around his immediate future, with Ronaldo’s final year set to cost Juventus £75million in wages and amortisation.
There have also been suggestions that Ronaldo himself would like to move.
But Juve’s new CEO Federico Cherubini insists there has been no indication from the player’s camp that he is looking for a way out.
“There has been no signal from Ronaldo,” he told reporters on Thursday. “Especially the rumours that there should be a transfer and there’s no sign from Juventus in this regard.
“Last season he scored 36 goals in 44 games, the numbers don’t always say everything but hide many truths, we are happy that Ronaldo will join the team as soon as he has finished his holidays.”
Pressed once more over whether he expects to see Ronaldo in black and white next term, Cherubini defiantly added: “I don’t have the crystal ball, but right now there are no signals regarding a possible transfer.”
Juventus will have Max Allegri back at the helm in 2021-22 as they look to regain their Serie A crown following Inter Milan’s triumph last season.
But the returning Italian may not see new faces arrive before a Scudetto bid, following a number of big-spending summers since his 2019 departure.
Cherubini said: “We arrive from a few seasons where we have made important and targeted investments that put us in a position to reach the beginning of the season with a competitive team.
“We may not even carry out a transfer market, because we believe we have a competitive team, and our idea is our coach.
“Of course, in a logic of sharing strategies and objectives, we know that something can be improved but it doesn’t mean that this will happen.
“We have a plan for the progressive strengthening of the team over the years and above all to wait for those investments made in recent years, especially in the last two years with the rejuvenation of the squad.
“We are convinced that we already have ample room for growth with the technical assets at our disposal.
“It will not be a market in which we will be very active, but we will be vigilant and ready to seize opportunities with technical and economic parameters in line with our plan.”
