Jorge Mendes and Real Madrid open talks on Cristiano Ronaldo return
The player is strongly linked to a return to his former camp
Failing to guide Juventus beyond the round of 16 for the second year in a row, Cristiano Ronaldo’s time at Juventus seems to be coming to an end.
Although the Portuguese player still has a year of Serie A contract, Juventus are said to be eager to monetize the player. With the Italian club unwilling to extend Ronaldo’s deal, there are reports that Juventus are ready to drop Ronaldo for £ 25million.
The first club to be linked with Ronaldo is Real Madrid. The La Liga giants are said to be extremely keen to indulge Ronaldo’s services given the discounted price he is bound to be available for.
Real Madrid open talks with Ronaldo
Spanish sports journalist Josep Pedrerol continued to provide a massive update on Ronaldo’s future. Speaking about the Portuguese player’s future, Pedrerol claimed that Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes and Real Madrid are already in negotiations.
“Jorge Mendes has spoken with Real Madrid about the possibility of Cristiano returning,” Pedrerol told El Chiringuito.
Current Real Madrid coach Zidane, meanwhile, spoke about Real Madrid when asked about the player’s return.
“You know what he is, what he’s done and how much love we have for him. He’s made history here, he’s magnificent. Now he’s a Juve player and I can’t tell you anything about what they (the media) are saying. He’s a Juve player and I have to respect those things, ”Zidane said.
Ronaldo flourished and prospered as a player during his time at Real Madrid with him who won two La Liga trophies and four Champions League titles. The player spearheaded his team’s consummate success with him, scoring 450 times.
Ronaldo later decided to move to Juventus where he won a Serie A trophy. The player is currently the league’s top scorer with the 27 goals to his name, which brings his total to 97 in 121 matches for the Italian club.
