Zidane opens the door for Cristiano Ronaldo return

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has not ruled out the possibilities of the club re-signing Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo has been a subject of speculation in the past week following Jucve’s ouster in the Champions League and while reports indicate that the attacker might consider his options in the summer, Ronaldo has retaliated that he was happy at Juve and was looking forward to achieving greater things with the team.

There had been reports that both Madrid and Manchester United might reconsider signing the player with Zidane adding fire to these speculations after claiming that he wouldn’t rule out a return.

Asked about the possibility of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner returning to Madrid, Zidane told Sky Italia: “Yes, it may be (true). Now, let’s see what the future will be like. I was lucky enough to coach him and he is very impressive. Right now, he’s helping Juventus.”

Ronaldo departed the Bernabeu for Juventus at the end of the 2017/18 campaign with his replacement Eden Hazard having failed to cement a place in the team due to consistent injuries.

In 2018, Juventus signed the former Manchester United winger for an incredible £99.2 million in the hope he could bring Champions League glory to Turin for the first time since 1996; a task they failed in after being eliminated in the last 16 by FC Porto.
