There is no option for Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo to return to his former club Real Madrid in the summer, reports the correspondent of Eurosport in Spain Fermin de la Caye. After the elimination of the "Bianconeri" in the round of 16 of the Champions League, it became clear that Ronaldo will almost certainly leave Turin after the end of the season and there are rumors that he may return to Real, where he won the Champions League four times.
However, according to the information, this cannot happen and there are three reasons. The first is that the main transfer target of the Royal Club this summer will be the big star of French football and PSG Killian Mbape. The 22-year-old striker rejected the offer of Parisians for a new contract, and his current contract expires in 2022, and Real will throw all their strength to attract him after the European Championship, as they see in Mbape successor to Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the best football player in the world.
The second reason is that at the moment Real can not afford to pay the huge salary of Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner receives 64m euros a year, which is unaffordable for Madrid in view of the financial crisis caused by the pandemic. In addition, Real will have to pay a transfer fee to Juventus, although the asking price is not too high - 29 million euros.
The number 3 reason for Eurosport is the bad relations between the president of Real Madrid Florentino Perez and Ronaldo. The two quarreled a few years ago and in the last seasons of the Portuguese at the "Santiago Bernabeu" did not even talk, as they have not yet smoothed their relationship.
In this situation, it seems increasingly likely that Ronaldo will continue his career at PSG, especially if the French champions part with Mbape.
