Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid could rejoin forces when the summer transfer window reopens. Since the last couple of weeks, the future of the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been one of the most intensely speculated topics.
The Portuguese captain is being tipped to put an end to his three-year Juventus stay after the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.
As a result, a Real Madrid return is on the cards for the 36-year-old forward, likewise, a reunion with Manchester United, while a move to the MLS is also being suggested for the superstar.
So, in what would serve as a source of great pleasure for Real Madrid fans, Diario Gol is claiming that the prolific Portuguese is ready to move back to the club he spent nine glorious years with.
But the report also adds what Cristiano Ronaldo’s condition for that move to materialize is: he would only rejoin forces with Los Blancos if Zinedine Zidane is still their manager.
Under two a half years, Zidane and Ronaldo enjoyed immense success at the Santiago Bernabeu. The two icons guided the glorious club to three back-to-back Champions League triumphs – a feat never heard of – and a La Liga title.
Moreover, doubts have been raised several times this season as to whether Zinedine Zidane is the right man to carry Real Madrid forward, with the team lagging behind in their La Liga title defense and with the Frenchman making some questionable transfer decisions.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo appears to have no doubts about the Frenchman’s capabilities and would reportedly love to work with him again at Real Madrid.
