Now Ronaldo has returned to Europe without a club and is training with former side Real Madrid in a bid to keep his fitness up.
He first trained with Los Blancos on Wednesday as speculation over a stunning comeback began.
And those links rumbled on when he arrived in a Mercedes for Real training yet again on Thursday.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano posted a clip on social media of Ronaldo turning up.
And he added: “Cristiano Ronaldo had training session at Real Madrid center Valdebebas also today. He’s allowed to train on separate pitch.”
He has never been shy in revealing his fondness for Real and would no doubt happily return.
Yet, despite president Florentino Perez’s kind words down the years, it’s believed the club have shut the door to a potential return as they don’t want to disrupt Carlo Ancelotti‘s current squad.
It’s believed the forward will be offered a staggering £173million a year to complete a free move to Saudi Arabia.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo is NOT expected to retire from international duty after Portugal’s World Cup heartache.
The ex-Sporting Lisbon star was spotted in tears in the tunnel following the gut-wrenching defeat to Morocco.
But CM Journal claims Ronaldo has already informed Portugal chiefs he intends to continue playing for his country.
And that puts him in contention to lead his nation at Euro 2024 in 18 months time.
He was subbed on in both Portugal’s last 16 clash with Switzerland and quarter-final against Morocco – but was unable to end his career-long knockout stage goal drought.
