Cristiano Ronaldo wants Real Madrid return and negotiations 'opened' with Juventus superstar available for just £25m

CRISTIANO RONALDO wants to make a sensational return to Real Madrid, according to reports.

The Portuguese icon left the Spanish capital three years ago, joining Juventus for £85million.


Ronaldo, 36, was recruited by the Old Lady with the aim of taking them over the line in the Champions League after a series of near misses.

But things haven't worked out for Juventus in Europe, having failed to go beyond the quarter-finals since Ronaldo's arrival.

Following their latest exit at the hands of Porto, their second at the round of 16 stage in a row, club chiefs are reportedly eager to offload CR7 for just £25m – in order to rid themselves of his enormous salary.

It's claimed that Ronaldo earns around £1.1m-a-WEEK gross – which accounts for around a fifth of Juventus' entire wage budget.

Come the summer, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner will still have a year left on his contract.

But according to Diario AS, he wants to make a remarkable return to Santiago Bernabeu.

After joining Madrid for a then-world record fee of £80m from Manchester United in 2009, Ronaldo broke all kinds of records with Los Blancos.

He scored 450 goals in 438 games for Madrid, while winning two league titles and four Champions Leagues.

Ronaldo reportedly left Santiago Bernabeu because he no longer felt 'indispensable' in the eyes of president Florentino Perez.

But it would appear all may be forgiven and forgotten, with a potential reunion on the cards in the coming months.

Ronaldo has bagged 92 goals in 121 appearances for Juventus, adding two Serie A titles to his overflowing trophy cabinet.
