Real Madrid could bring back Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer. Yes, the 5-time Ballon d'Or winner who had, in a sensational move, left Los Blancos two years ago could be on his way back to Santiago Bernabeu. According to an Italian publication Corriere Dello Sport [via DailyStar], tabling a €58m offer for the Portuguese skipper might be enough to convince Juventus to consider letting their star man leave in the summer.
Rumours have been rife that Juventus and Ronaldo would part ways this summer with a potential financial crisis looming over the Old Lady due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has brought footballing activities to a halt. However, the league leaders in Serie A are currently not short of cash but may have to face the financial consequence of the virus outbreak.

Nevertheless, there is no clarity regarding whether Real Madrid is interested in bringing back their former forward, who had spent nine years in the Spanish capital and helped Los Blancos win the UEFA Champions League four times.
Since the Portuguese left Real Madrid, the Spanish side has failed to repeat the feats they once achieved. They now trail FC Barcelona by two points in the La Liga, while also have to mount a one-goal deficit in the second leg of the Champions League to advance further.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo helped Juventus to Serie A title in his inaugural season while he could not inspire them to glory in the UEFA Champions League. This season, the Old Lady remains as the league leaders in Serie A, while they also have to mount a 1-goal deficit when they face Lyon in the second-leg in the Champions League, which has also been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.
