The Brazilian has a deal at Real Madrid that runs until 2022, but it looks increasingly likely that the club will be open to selling him in the summer after his relationship with the club’s fans has considerably soured. Moreover, his friendship with Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to smooth the deal over on the Juventus side of things.
