Zidane on Ronaldo’s potential return: “It could be”

15 Mar 2021

It looks like rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Real Madrid are not baseless after all: Zinedine Zidane gave an interesting answer when asked about it.

“Rumours about Ronaldo’s return to Real Madrid are true? Yes, it could be… we know Cristiano but he’s a Juve player now, and we have to honour this, he’s playing for another club. Now let us see what the future will be,” he told Sky Sports.

Ronaldo’s return to the capital was mentioned as a possibility last week, when Marca reported his agent Jorge Mendes has been exploring that route for a year now.

Zidane was initially more tight-lipped but it looks like he let slip more than he wanted today. The summer transfer window surely promises to be interesting.
