Will Ronaldo come back to Real Madrid? That’s the question on every fans lip: Ronaldo’s return to Real Madrid!
Newly signed Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has addressed rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo to a similar return to the Santiago Bernabeu following his sensational return to the club.
In case you didn’t know, in a surprising turn of events, Zidane returned to Real Madrid, just ten months after quitting the club and has agreed to take over again until 2022.
Since his departure, and that of Cristiano Ronaldo’s, the European champions have been struggling to replicate their usual form, suffering an array of defeats under Julen Lopetegui.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner was immediately linked with a return to Real Madrid following Zidane’s re-appointment.
When the Frenchman was asked about a potential transfer for Ronaldo, Zidane told The Mirror UK, “That is not today’s issue. We have 11 games to play, then we will see for next year. We all know Cristiano, one of the best players in this club’s history.”
“But today is not for talking about these things. I am not thinking yet about that. The most important thing is to be back at the club, and I am just thinking now about these 11 games.”
“We will have time to look at the rest, with the appropriate people, then we will plan for next season.”
Real Madrid will hope to salvage whatever they can from the remaining La Liga games and will play their first game under Zidane on Saturday when they face Celta Vigo.
So, will Ronaldo return to Real Madrid?
