The five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo is set for a thrilling return to former club, Real Madrid which he departed from in 2018.
Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Real Madrid at some stage would come as no surprise, says Portugal team-mate Jose Fonte, as the Juventus superstar has “always left the door open”.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner took the decision to depart Santiago Bernabeu during the summer of 2018.
After nine record-breaking years in the Spanish capital, Ronaldo opted to take on another new challenge in his remarkable career.
He enjoyed considerable success with Manchester United and Real, now he eyes Italy as the next land for an all-time great to conquer.
Accordung to Jose Fonte “It’s clear that he loves the club itself, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest. He’s left many, many friends there and he’s always left the door open.
So I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to Real Madrid.”
His agreement with his club could also be broken if Ronaldo decides he wants out of Turin, with Fonte claiming that steps may be retraced back to Madrid.
Though Ronaldo’s fan are hopeful of potential return to Real for an illustrious countryman: “I know he loves Madrid, that’s for sure.
A long-term contract has Ronaldo tied to the Bianconeri through to 2022, at which point he will be 37 years old.
Age is just a number of the Portuguese icon, though, and there is every reason to believe that he will play well beyond the end of his current deal.
