The agent of star player Cristiano Ronaldo has contacted Real Madrid this year regarding a potential return from Juventus, according to multiple reports.

However, the latter of whom clarify that it was made clear that such a move was not feasible this year due to the economic situation and squad planning situation in the Spanish capital.

Ronaldo has netted 92 goals in 121 outings for the Bianconeri but is now aged 36, with the club said to be open to a sale in order to create room in their wage bill and reinvest in their squad.
