Cristiano Ronaldo has rejected an offer from China to stay in Europe
The 33-year-old looks set to quit Real Madrid this summer, as he nears a stunning €100m (£88m) move to Juventus.
Ronaldo has repeatedly threatened to leave the Spanish capital over the years, usually in the hope of receiving a new bumper deal from the club.
But this time it appears the attacker isn’t bluffing with the Champions League holders.
However, Ronaldo has said no to a staggering offer from an unnamed Chinese side.
According to Spanish publication Marca, the Madrid forward was offered a two year deal from an Asian outfit, where he would earn €100m (£88m) per season.

Ronaldo still believes he has something to offer at the highest level, and a move to Juventus would allow him to win some of the world’s most prestigious trophies at a third European side.
The former Manchester United man will reportedly earn around €30m (£26.5m) per year at the Serie A giants.
And speaking earlier this week, Jorge Mendes hinted a deal could be close.
“If Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid he will remain eternally grateful to the club, the president, all the management, all the medical personnel, all the officials without exception, the Adepts and all the Madridistas scattered around the world,” he said.
Ronaldo’s last game for Madrid was the Champions League final victory against Liverpool.
The Portuguese star is now enjoying his holiday after being knocked out of the World Cup by Uruguay last week.
