Cristiano Ronaldo asked not to start for Juventus against Udinese in Serie A on Sunday, according to Sky in Italy.

Ronaldo, who began the game on the bench, is out of contract next summer.

The 36-year-old Portuguese superstar has been linked with former club Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City.

Juventus risk losing him for nothing in 2022 unless they sell him this summer or agree a new deal.

We understand Ronaldo is open to leaving Juventus but no club has made an offer for him and he has not officially told the Italian club he wants to leave.

Juventus expect him to stay and vice chairman Pavel Nedved has said as much this weekend.

Any club wanting to sign Ronaldo would have to buy out his Juventus contract, which would cost €28m.

Juventus boss Max Allegri said ahead of the weekend that Ronaldo had no intention of leaving.

Allegri said: "He has never wanted to leave.

"He told me that he's staying and he will be in Udine."
