Real Madrid have sensationally decided that if Cristiano Ronaldo’s former club show an interest in re-signing him this summer, they will allow the Portugal international to leave the Bernabeu.
Speculation surrounding Ronaldo’s future seems to come up in every summer transfer window, although it only intensified recently when he hinted that he would be leaving Los Blancos in his post match interview immediately after his sides 3-1 Champions League victory over Liverpool in May.
According to El Gol Digital, new Real manager Julen Lopetegu has let Bernabeu chiefs know that he would be happy to let Ronaldo leave, with his former club Manchester United the clear favourites to secure his signature ahead of French money bags PSG.
Ronaldo is also rumoured to have fallen out with the La Liga sides captain Sergio Ramos and several other members of the Real dressing room, and it seems that despite flirting with leaving the club he joined for £80 million in 2009 this may well be the summer when it actually happens.
Despite being 33 Ronaldo is still in amazing shape and although United CEO would love to sign a player as commercially valuable as CR7 any deal would involve a monstrous financial outlay in terms of transfer fee and wages.
If Ronaldo does leave Real Madrid this year he will depart the Spainish capital as the clubs all time leading goal scorer and will go down in history as one of the 13 time European Champions greatest ever players.
