Where is Cristiano Ronaldo taking his cars?
Is he leaving Juventus?
Please allow me to digress for a moment because in order to talk about Cristiano Ronaldo's cars, I have to start with football. Italian giants Juventus fell short this Serie A season, failing to defend their title and, with just one game to go, they're still not sure they're going to secure a UEFA Champions League position.
The Turin-based club won the Italian league for 9 consecutive years before arch-rivals FC Inter went back to winning ways, claiming their first Serie A title since 2010, thus interrupting Juventus' record-breaking winning streak.
Juventus haven't won the Champions League in 25 years and counting, and between 2016 and 2019, they put a lot of eggs in that particular basket, buying Higuaín (from Napoli), Cristiano Ronaldo (from Real Madrid) and De Ligt (from Ajax) for €90m, €100m and €75m.
It was essentially an 'all-in' move to win the UCL but it didn't pay off, and football, just like everything else, has been financially disrupted by the pandemic, which means that without a UCL spot next year, big players like Ronaldo are probably going to leave.
Transfer speculation rumours have been following the Portuguese star for months and his name has been linked with moves to Ligue 1's Paris Saint-Germain, and some even talked about a potential romantic return to either Manchester United, where he played at the beginning of his career, or to Sporting Lisbon, the club where Ronaldo learnt his trade as a youth.
These rumours have been fuelled by the fact that just a couple of nights ago, Ronaldo has had all his cars loaded on a truck because he's moving them from the garage where he kept them in Turin to an undisclosed location.
The third highest-earning athlete of 2020 (Forbes), Ronaldo owns a variety of supercars and luxury cars including a Rolls-Royce Cullinan, several Ferraris including an SP2 Monza that he recently purchased, and a Bugatti Chiron. Some say he's the one who actually bought the one-off Bugatti La Voiture Noire (unconfirmed).
In the video, we can see seven cars being loaded onto the trucks, including a G-Wagen and - please do correct me if I'm wrong - a car that appears to be a Ferrari F12 TDF.
