  • Cristiano Ronaldo was eager to join Real Madrid during the January transfer window
  • However, the move hit a snag after Carlo Ancelotti failed to approve it for various reasons
  • Ronaldo then signed a massive contract with Saudi Arabian side Al-Nassr

Real Madrid reportedly declined the chance to sign their former star Cristiano Ronaldo due to Carlo Ancelotti.

Following an explosive interview with Piers Morgan, where he slammed different aspects of Manchester United, Ronaldo left Old Trafford in January to sign for Al-Nassr.

The 38-year-old was open to the idea of returning to the Santiago Bernabeu, where he netted 450 goals in 438 outings to become the club's record goal scorer.

However, according to Spanish Newspaper El Nacional, noted by Sportskeeda, Ronaldo's dream return to Spain did not materialise as Ancelotti preferred to stick to Karim Benzema as his sole striker.

Considering the strong relationship the five-time Ballon d'Or winner had with the Italian manager between 2013 and 2015, the Portuguese considered it a betrayal, according to the report.

Ronaldo went on to join Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr as a free agent and has since scored nine goals and provided two assists in 10 matches for the club.

Perez says no to Ronaldo

Meanwhile, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez also ruled out a move to sign Ronaldo, Sports Brief had earlier reported.

When asked by fans if he plans to make a bid for the legendary forward, whose contract was ripped apart at Old Trafford, Perez replied:

"Sign Cristiano? Again? He's 38 years old", getting the age of the striker wrong.

Ronaldo's sister slams Perez

Sports Brief also reported that Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister has slammed Real Madrid president Florentino Perez for laughing at the possibility of bringing him back to the Santiago Bernabeu.

After the UEFA Super Cup game between Real Madrid and Frankfurt in Helsinki, Perez was asked by a fan about a potential return for the 37-year-old.

His response seems to have not sat well with Ronaldo's sister, Katia Aveiro who blasted the Spanish businessman.
