Real Madrid are reportedly open to a sensational reunion with five-time Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo, but only under one condition.
The 36-year-old is believed to be keen on a return to the Santiago Bernabeu, although Juventus have insisted they are not planning on selling their superstar, with both sporting director Fabio Paratici and vice-president Pavel Nedved publicly stating he is "going nowhere".
However, behind the scenes there are rumours that Ronaldo and Juve are set to meet for showdown talks because the player is considering his future in Italy after yet another UEFA Champions League disappointment.
Reports in Spain also suggest that Ronaldo has expressed his willingness to return to Los Blancos, who are assessing the situation.
According to AS, the Spanish giants are seriously considering making a move to bring their former No. 7 back, especially with Zinedine Zidane's side having struggled to hit the same goalscoring heights from Ronaldo's days in Madrid.
However, the LaLiga club has suffered massive financial losses due to the coronavirus pandemic, and would only push ahead with the transfer if Ronaldo accepts a salary decrease.
The forward is currently earning €31 million (R544 million) a year at Juventus, which is believed to be €10 million (R175 million) more than what he pocketed at Real.
