Cristiano Ronaldo's agent ‘holds informal transfer talks over Real Madrid return’ after Juventus Champions League exit

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly held 'informal talks' with Real Madrid about a return to the club.

Rumours are rife that Ronaldo could be sold by Juventus after their miserable Champions League exit at the hands of Porto.

And rejoining Real Madrid – who never replaced his exploits at the Bernabeu – could be an option.

Spanish TV program El Chiringuito reported that Mendes has already spoken with Los Blancos in what would be a stunning transfer.

And newspaper Marca has confirmed that dialogue between Ronaldo and Real 'was resumed just a year ago' and that a return 'has passed through the player's head'.

The superstar, 36, and his team-mates suffered disappointment this week after they were dumped out of the Champions League by Porto.

Ronaldo was heavily criticised for his part in the setback as he turned his back on the free-kick that sealed victory for the Portuguese side.

And that could prove to be one of the last big moments in his career at Juventus as speculation mounts he may be offloaded at the end of the season.

Despite being under contract in Italy until 2022, he has been linked with a big-money move to both China and the USA’s MLS previously.

Italian journalist Emanuele Gamba told Calciomercato that he thinks Ronaldo will stay at Juventus for at least another 12 months.


However, he claims that the forward’s agent Jorge Mendes offered the icon’s services to both United and Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Ronaldo arrived at Juventus after his glittering nine-year spell at Real Madrid in 2018.

Even though they have lifted Serie A each season he has been there, their lack of success in the Champions League has been deemed as a major fail.
