Manchester United transfer target Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly held talks with new Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri about his future but will only make a final decision once he has played at Euro 2020.
Ronaldo could leave Juventus this summer following a disappointing year for his side in Serie A.
However, he has put discussions over his next destination on hold to help Portugal defend their 2016 European Championship success.
The 36-year-old has just a year remaining on his contract in Turin.
Juventus’ nine-year domination of the Italian top-flight was comfortably ended by Inter Milan, who topped the division with a 12-point lead over rivals AC Milan.

Ronaldo and his side finished a lowly fourth under Andrea Pirlo.
The former Italy midfielder was sacked after the end of the season and has since been replaced by Allegri.
An impressive tally of 29 league goals in 33 appearances was not enough for Ronaldo to help them finish any higher, despite making him the division’s top scorer.
Inter forward Romelu Lukaku came second with 24 goals despite playing in three more matches than Ronaldo.

Allegri’s return to Juventus following a two-year hiatus may not be enough to convince the former Manchester United star to remain at the club.
It was the 53-year-old who was in charge when Ronaldo’s £86million move from Real Madrid was sanctioned in 2018.
However, ESPN claim that the pair have held talks over the forward’s future and Juventus hope to convince him that he should turn down interest from elsewhere.
More talks are planned for their return to pre-season once Ronaldo has played for Portugal at Euro 2020.
Ronaldo has been linked with a sensational return to former club Man Utd, where he played 292 times and scored 118 goals between 2003 and 2009.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing a forward, despite tying down Edinson Cavani to a one-year contract extension last month.
Cavani joined the Red Devils at the start of last season following his release by Paris Saint-Germain and scored 17 times during his debut season.
“He came here in October and had not played football in seven months,” Solskjaer told Norwegian broadcaster TV2.
“It takes time to get in shape, even if he takes care of himself.
“He got some injuries and little things that bothered him, and it is only recently that we have begun to see some of the best of him.
“When he gets this experience and a run-up, he will be better than this year, despite the fact that he is getting older.”
