Cristiano Ronaldo News: The legend trains at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas while awaiting next club move
In Cristiano Ronaldo news, he is training at Valdebebas just four days after Portugal's elimination to Morocco in the World Cup, according to a report from Revelo.
The striker has returned to Madrid, his home of 9 years from 2009-2018, where he is now training at Valdebebas, on his own, to maintain his form and shape for second half of the season. Cristiano received all relevant permissions from the club and was able to train on a different field from the one hosted by the first team training.
After his contract was terminated with Manchester United this month, Ronaldo has been on the lookout for a new club. He has an economically mouth-watering offer on the table from Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr, but has not given a "yes" yet as he awaits any offers from potential European and Champions League competing clubs. It is no secrete that Ronaldo would love a return to Madrid, but the club considers the Cristiano Ronaldo chapter closed and does not want to bring the veteran into the current squad dynamics.
Ronaldo's return to Valdebebas reportedly surprised many this morning, with many academy players desperate to see the legend and snap a picture. The fact that Ronaldo chose to train in Madrid at Valdebebas, and the club granted him permission, suggest that the relationship between the two is solid. Cristiano Ronaldo will forever be one of, if not the greatest, player to ever play for Real Madrid.
Transfer-specialist Italian journalist, Fabrizio Romano, confirmed that Ronaldo has been training at the Real Madrid sports center to remain in top physical shape.
"Cristiano Ronaldo has trained at Real Madrid sporting center Valdebebas in the last hours – on a separated pitch #Ronaldo As revealed by @relevo/@hugocerezo, Cristiano's just working there to keep his form thanks to great relationship with the club, waiting for new chapter," he tweeted.
So far, only a concrete offer from Saudia Arabia club Al Nassr has been tabled in front of Ronaldo but the 37-year-old is probably holding on for a contract from a top European club. Ronaldo remains keen on playing at the top level of European football for a few more years and possibly look to win a few more titles.
As far as Al Nassr are concerned, the club's manager Rudi Garcia has opened up on the subject. The French manager was quoted as saying by Daily Mail to AS: "I think that any coach would be delighted to train a great star like Cristiano and already in November 2021 I was very close to going to United.
