At the heart of many rumors in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo would want to return to Real Madrid according to information from AS newspaper. Under contract with Juventus, the 36-year-old Portuguese would already discuss with the Madrid club.
Criticized from all sides in Italy after the elimination of Juventus by Porto in the knockout stages of the Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Serie A during the next summer transfer window. After the information of El Chiringuito on exchanges between his agent Jorge Mendes and Real Madrid, the Portuguese himself would discuss a return to Spain according to the newspaper AS.
The Madrid daily assures that the five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or has been discussing for several months the conditions of a return to Spain, where he played between 2009 and 2018, winning in particular four titles in C1 and two trophies in La Liga (in 2012 and 2017).

CR7 would like to return to Madrid
But the publication goes even further and estimates that the 36-year-old Portuguese would “have a great desire to put on the Real Madrid shirt again” before the end of his career.
Soon three years after his surprise departure to Serie A, Cristiano Ronaldo would never have stopped following the news of La Liga and the club merengue. According to AS, the Lusitanian striker even kept an excellent knowledge of the Real Madrid squad.
Still, a potential return to La Liga is still far from being realized. Under contract with Juventus until June 2022, Cristiano Ronaldo should not be allowed to leave the Old Lady for free, even the Spanish newspaper also indicates that “his departure from Juventus would be no problem if Real decided to bring him back “.
Like Lionel Messi, whose future at Barça seems most uncertain, Cristiano Ronaldo could also shake the next summer transfer window. While waiting for a possible departure, the Portuguese will try to win a third consecutive league title in Italy. Only third in the standings, ten points behind Inter, Juve moves this Sunday to the field of Cagliari. Top scorer in the championship with 20 goals in 22 games, CR7 will still be Turin’s main offensive asset. What to forget his setbacks in the Champions League and silence the critics.
