Cristiano Ronaldo has left the door open for a potential return to Real Madrid, according to the forward’s Portugal team-mate Jose Fonte.
Reports in Italy have suggested that Juventus would be willing to let Ronaldo re-join Madrid for as little as £50m as they attempt to ease the financial burden on the club caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ronaldo spent nine years in the Spanish capital, helping Madrid win four Champions League crowns and two La Liga titles as well as becoming the club’s all-time top scorer with 450 goals.
“I know he loves Madrid, that’s for sure,” Fonte told talkSPORT.
“It is clear that he loves the club itself, it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world, if not the biggest. He has left many, many friends there and he has always left the door open. So I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to Real Madrid,” said Fonte.
Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, joined Juventus in June 2018 for a fee in the region of £100m and has since scored 53 goals in 75 matches.
He helped Juventus clinch their eighth successive Serie A title during his debut campaign in Turin.
Prior to the suspension of Serie A due to the coronavirus pandemic, Juventus sat top of the table a point ahead of nearest rivals Lazio.
