Juventus reportedly turned down the chance to sign Manchester United's Edinson Cavani in part exchange for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo officially re-joined the Red Devils from the Serie A giants on Tuesday, signing a two-year contract with the option to extend it by a further year.
The Italian side also confirmed the deal from their end, revealing that £12.9m would be paid up-front with a further £6.9m coming in add-ons.
The report claims that Juventus never considered Cavani as a potential signing as they were not prepared to recruit a player on such a high salary.
Cavani is now to stay at Old Trafford this season, though he is to wear a new shirt number, as the iconic number 7 shirt has been vacated for Ronaldo, with the Uruguayan taking the number 21, which he also wears for the national side.
The 34-year-old striker made 39 appearances across all competitions for United last season, scoring 17 goals and providing six assists.
