Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly said his goodbyes to his Juventus teammates and left training early.
The Portuguese was reportedly at the Serie A giant’s facilities for just 40 minutes this Friday and opted against training.
He is determined to complete a transfer away from Juventus after agreeing on personal terms with Manchester City.

Ronaldo held a meeting with his agent Jorge Mendes and Juve on Thursday, and after a conversation with Pep Guardiola has agreed to sign for Man City.
Juventus and the Premier League champions still need to agree on a transfer fee for the Portuguese, with Man City against the idea of spending money.
Juve want £25million for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner but Man City would rather pay this money to Ronaldo in wages over two seasons.
Man City have reportedly offered Raheem Sterling in a swap deal for Ronaldo, but Juve are against bringing the Englishman to Italy.

Instead, Juve are keen on snapping up Gabriel Jesus, but Guardiola is reluctant to part with the Brazilian forward.
Man City made signing a centre-forward a priority this summer after parting company with Sergio Aguero when his contract expired.
Jack Grealish was the first big-money signing through the door at the Etihad, and Harry Kane was expected to follow suit.
But City and Tottenham couldn’t come to an agreement over the transfer fee, with Guardiola’s side offering £50million less than Daniel Levy’s asking price.
With no wiggle room, and City unprepared to increase their offer, Kane was forced to admit defeat, and announced he would be staying at Spurs on social media.
“It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks,” wrote Kane.
“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100 per cent focused on helping the team achieve success.”
