SPORTbible claim the five-time Ballon d'Or winner wants out and wants to reunite with Carlo Ancelotti who is now in charge at Real Madrid.

It was gathered that Kylian Mbappe’s situation could be the key decider to Ronaldo’s future. If the Frenchman leaves PSG to join Real Madrid, then Ronaldo might head to the French capital as replacement.

However, Mbappe’s possible move to Spain remains a complicated one and him staying back at PSG could see Ronaldo return to Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo joined Real in a world-record £80 million transfer from Manchester United in 2009 and went on to score a record-breaking 450 goals in 438 games.

After winning a fourth Champions League trophy with Los Blancos, he made a shock £99 million switch to Juventus in 2018.

Ronaldo not interested in PSG move

Cristiano Ronaldo has, however, shut down all speculations linking him with a move to Paris Saint Germain this transfer window after re-joining his Juventus teammates in training on Monday, July 26.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner recently concluded his summer holiday in Spain with his family after winning Euro 2020 highest goalscorer award.

He scored five goals and one assist in four games in the competition despite crashing out at the last-16 stage earlier this month.
