Ronaldo trains with former club after leaving Man Utd
Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo, on Wednesday trained at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas training ground on Wednesday, as he prepares to take a decision on his future.
The 37-year-old is without a club after leaving Manchester United last month.
He returned to Madrid after Portugal’s exit at the World Cup in Qatar, where he made a second-half substitute appearance in their quarterfinal defeat to Morocco on Saturday.
Sources have told ESPN that Ronaldo asked for permission to train at Real Madrid City on Wednesday to maintain his fitness, a request that was welcomed by the club. He worked alone on a separate pitch, away from where Madrid’s first-team squad were training with manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The relationship between the five-time Ballon d’Or winner and Madrid took a hit when he left in 2018, joining Juventus in a €100 million deal, but has improved since then.
Ronaldo is the highest-scoring player in Madrid’s history and won four Champions Leagues and two LaLiga titles in nine hugely successful seasons at the club.
After three years at Juventus, Ronaldo was linked with a return to Madrid last summer before Ancelotti ruled out a move and the forward rejoined United.
