Despite Zinedine Zidane recently saying Cristiano Ronaldo could make a stunning return to Real Madrid, it has been claimed there are three reasons why the Spanish giants do not want to re-sign the Juventus talisman.

According to Eurosport, Los Blancos are not interested in taking the 36-year-old back to the Santiago Bernabeu next season.
Zidane recently fuelled speculation when he stated that rumours linking Ronaldo with a return to Real could be true, but a new report suggests the move is unlikely to materialise.
It is claimed the Spanish giants are put off by the five-time Ballon d'Or winner's big wages, especially after the financial strain the club has been put under by the coronavirus pandemic.

Secondly, Real still consider Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe to be their ideal signing, whether they make an official approach for the 22-year-old this year or in 2022.
The final reason, according to Eurosport, involves club president Florentino Perez, whose last dealings with Ronaldo might have hurt their relationship.
The Portugal captain decided to leave the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners in 2018 after reportedly feeling undervalued by Los Blancos' chief, who it is said did not want to give Ronaldo a bumper new deal in Spain at the time.
