Real Madrid have reportedly decided not to make a move for former striker Cristiano Ronaldo despite the Portuguese eyeing an emotional reunion with the Spanish giants.
The veteran forward appears highly likely to be leaving Manchester United in the January transfer window having severed his ties with the Red Devils during his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
Now, Spanish outlet SPORT report that the veteran striker has offered his services to former club Real Madrid.
Having seen former teammate Karim Benzema having been struck down through injury – ending his World Cup hopes in the process – Ronaldo could potentially become an emergency option in the January transfer window.
As per Marca, the Spanish giants are not expected to make a move for the Portuguese or any striker in the winter window.
That news will certainly be damaging for Ronaldo as he eyes a reunion with his former club.
When asked if he had ambitions of ending his career with the Spanish club, he replied: “I would really like to, but things don’t depend on me.
Ronaldo was on the move only a few months after that statement as he ended his nine-year spell with Real with a big-money move to Serie A giants Juventus.
