Cristiano Ronaldo is back in Madrid and training at Real Madrid’s academy as he looks to maintain fitness while looking for a new club.
He reportedly trained alone at the Valdebebas training ground after getting approval from the club on Wednesday.
The striker, however, was kept away from Carlo Ancelloti and the first-team squad which was training in the nearby field as they prepare for the return of club football after Sunday’s final.
Ronaldo and Madrid’s relationship was on the rocks following his move from the Spanish capital to Juventus in 2018 for 100 million euros but has steadily improved since then.
He was in the running for a return after leaving Juventus but Ancelloti decided to stick with Karim Benzema who went on to have a spectacular season with the team.
But his status at Real Madrid is secure as Ronaldo is the highest scorer in the club’s history. Together they won four Champions League titles and two La Liga’s in nine years.
Ronaldo, meanwhile, is still on the lookout for a new club after exiting Manchester United with no deal appearing to be close.
There were reports that he will join Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr in a highly lucrative deal but he denied last week that a deal had been done.
