So far, no one has expressed interest in the 37-year-old actor (Picture: Getty) Real Madrid is the latest club to back out of a deal to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
The 37-year-old is eager to leave Manchester United this summer after the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League, and his agent Jorge Mendes is actively looking for a new club for him before the start of the new season.
According to reports, Ronaldo’s representative met with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to discuss a sensational return to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Ronaldo scored 450 goals in 438 games for Real Madrid, but according to Marca, there is no chance of him returning.
So far, the veteran striker’s attempts to find a new club have been fruitless.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly met with Mendes about a sensational move to Stamford Bridge, but the London club has since cooled their interest, with Thomas Tuchel not thought to be interested.
Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have both declined offers.

Real Madrid was Ronaldo’s home for nine years. (Image courtesy of Getty) Atletico Madrid have also been approached about signing Ronaldo, who would be delighted to join Real Madrid’s city rivals. However, Diego Simeone’s side is unable to fund a transfer, a situation that could change later this summer.
Ronaldo has not returned to pre-season training due to ‘family reasons,’ and as a result will miss the club’s tour of Asia and Australia.
Throughout the tour, Erik ten Hag has been questioned about the future of last season’s top scorer, and the Dutchman remains confident that he will play a role in his team.
‘That is something Cristiano is capable of,’ ten Hag said.
‘Throughout his career, he has demonstrated everything. I’ve made my demand. We want to play in a specific manner. A top player can make a difference, and Ronaldo is unquestionably the best player in our squad.
When asked if Ronaldo could stay at United beyond this season, ten Hag replied, ‘Yes. ‘Of course, I signed for three years here, but football is also a short-term game.’ We have to win right away. So I don’t plan too far ahead. I have a strategy; it is a process that will take time, but we must ensure that there is a winning team from the start.’ MORE: Ajax manager compares Calvin Bassey to Liverpool and Manchester United legends Virgil van Dijk and Jaap Stam.
