CRISTIANO RONALDO wants to re-sign for Real Madrid, according to reports.
But any Bernabeu switch is dependent on whether Kylian Mbappe stays with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 36-year-old has been linked with a move away from Italy this summer following the team’s disappointing 2020-21 campaign.
PSG and former clubs Manchester United and Real Madrid have both been linked with the superstar forward.
Juve chief Pavel Nedved recently told rival clubs to forget about trying to sign Ronaldo because he is staying put.
But Ronaldo still has his heart set on a move back to Real, according to AS.
Ronnie is hoping to be reunited with Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabeu having previously described the Italian as ‘an incredible man, one of the best and most important’.
But the Portuguese ace knows any chance of a return is directly linked to Mbappe’s future.
The Frenchman is Madrid’s No 1 transfer target.
Mbappe, 22, has just a year remaining on his existing deal and reports suggest he wants to join Real.
But a lack of cash could stop Real signing the Frenchman this summer and instead try to get him on a free transfer at the end of the 2020-21 season.
That could see them move for Ronnie on a short-term deal in the meantime.
Since arriving in Italy three years ago, Ronaldo has scored a breathtaking 101 times in 129 appearances.
