Carlo Ancelotti Eager to Reunite with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti wants Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Real Madrid. The coach is pressuring both his club and the player to make it happen in the final two weeks of the window. The news was reported by Spanish program El Chiringuito TV.

The gaffer is the main proponent of the move. He is apparently obsessed with it and continuously calls the striker’s entourage to convince him to move. The star has not openly weighed in on the matter because there have not been any talks between the teams, journalist Edu Aguirre added. He indicated the deal might be possible but hinges on multiple factors.

First of all, the Italian manager needs to convince Florentino Perez. The Real Madrid president had shot the proposition down when it was first suggested early in the summer. “It does not make sense for Ronaldo to come back here,” he stated in a presser.

The chairman has been focusing his efforts on signing Kylian Mbappé from PSG, La Repubblica and multiple sources inform. They need the French striker to come forward and directly ask to leave. On the other hand, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has insisted that he would not sell his crown jewel.

Juventus have stated multiple times that Ronaldo would stay too. He has been linked more insistently to PSG than to Real Madrid. The domino has not started, and he will open the season with the Bianconeri. He previously spent eight years with the Galacticos, winning La Liga twice and the Champions League four times.

UPDATE: Ancelotti denied the report later in the day, claiming that he never asked to sign Ronaldo this summer.
