Reports: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus teammate wants to stay till January, rejects Qatar move

‘Barca have same chance of winning Champions League as others’ – Setien

The Croatian was rumoured to be on his way out of the club in the summer transfer window and was linked with Premier League giants Manchester United. However, a move didn’t materialise and the former Bayern Munich star stayed put.

With Juventus failing to offload quite a few players, they were forced to keep Mandzukic and Emre Can out of their UEFA Champions League squad and both the players have been looking for a way out since. The 33-year-old was linked with a move to Qatar with Al-Gharafa Sports Club reportedly interested in his signature.

However, according to reports in Calciomercato, the forward has rejected a move to Asia and wants to stay in Italy at least until the January window. Whether a club makes a move for him in the winter window or not remains to be seen but it looks that he will stay with the Serie A giants for the next few months.
