With Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo being linked with a shock return to Real Madrid, a player close to him has admitted he would not be surprised to see the five-time Ballon d'Or winner rejoin the Spanish giants.
The possibility of the Portuguese superstar going back to Los Blancos has been discussed in a number of publications of late, despite Marca recently suggesting that the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners have not considered trying to make the Portugal captain's return happen.
His international colleague Jose Fonte, however, recently claimed that Ronaldo has always "left the door open" on a potential over move back to Real.
"I know he loves Madrid, that's for sure," he told talkSPORT.
"It's clear that he loves the club itself, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest.
"He's left many, many friends there and he's always left the door open.
"So I wouldn't be surprised if he goes back to Real Madrid."
Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 matches in nine years for the Spanish giants after his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009.
