Ronaldo took to Instagram recently to deny all rumours about his future and has asked for people to respect him "as a man and as a player."

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has told reporters that star forward Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he'll be playing for the Old Lady this season. 

"He's always trained well, I just read the gossip in the papers. He never told us he wanted to leave," Allegri said at a news conference on Saturday. 

The coach outlined the Portuguese's importance to Juve. 

"He is an added bonus for us because he guarantees a large number of goals. Obviously, we also have to work as a team to get the best out of an individual," Allegri said. 

The manager's comments come after numerous unconfirmed reports concerning Ronaldo's future – rumours suggest he was mulling over a return to Real Madrid or a transfer to PSG or Man City. However, he has continually denied the claims.
