ESPN’s Dalton Cara captures the emotions of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, whose World Cup dreams ended on the same day.

Rumours of a potential transfer that would send Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid to Italian champions Juventus led the front pages of multiple daily sport newspapers in Europe on Tuesday.

Marca in Spain and A Bola in Ronaldo’s native Portugal were discussing a report on Spanish TV station La Sexta’s “Jugones” show on Monday night that claimed Real Madrid had agreed to sell Ronaldo to Juventus for €100 million.

The newspapers cited the TV report in their own discussions of a potential transfer, but did not confirm the claim that the deal has already been agreed.

Meanwhile, the story on the front of Italy’s Tuttosport on Tuesday said Juventus are still preparing an offer of nearly €120m for Ronaldo.

Sources told ESPN Deportes’ Paola Nunez that the “Jugones” story means that Real Madrid are at least considering the possibility of negotiations with Juventus.

Spanish newspaper AS reported that Ronaldo’s camp had confirmed the existence of an offer from Juventus — and that more could follow in the coming days — but insisted that no deal was completed.

Any transfer would still require Ronaldo to agree personal terms on a new contract.

In May, the superstar threw his future into doubt by talking about Real Madrid in the past tense after beating Liverpool in the Champions League final, and talks over a new contract at Madrid have stalled.
