One can still dream! Or is there more to it?
According to the Spanish newspaper “Marca”, Cristiano Ronaldo is looking to return to Real Madrid!
The Portuguese, who was the face of the royal star ensemble from 2009 to 2018, is thinking about leaving his club Juventus Turin. The paper speculates that a planned salary cut at Juve, due to the corona pandemic, is a reason for the 35-year-old’s thoughts on switching. The fact that Real Madrid was hit hard financially by the crisis due to a lack of revenue is not mentioned.
Rather, the report is based on the fact that Ronaldo never made a secret of the fact that his heart still beats for Real. His presence at the Clasico in March and his social media cheers after the recent win against Barcelona bear it out.
Whether a return to Madrid would be worthwhile for CR7 from a financial point of view is questionable, because the “Marca” continues to write that the tax advantages in Italy are the reason why Ronaldo and many other well-known stars want to switch to the series A would have decided. The Spanish capital city club could not attract with a comparable argument.
The biggest problem with Ronaldo’s return plans, however: According to the report, Real is not even considering a comeback of the superstar.
