Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is reportedly keeping an eye on Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation at Juventus as he plots a stunning swoop to take the Portuguese star back to the Bernabeu.
Ronaldo left Real for Juventus in a deal worth almost £100million in July 2018.
However, Italy has been the European epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak and there all Serie A football has been postponed for the foreseeable future.
With no matches being played clubs are struggling financially and many have asked their players to take pay cuts.
Ronaldo has agreed to waive four months’ wages to ease the financial burden on Juventus.
But if Maurizio Sarri’s side are still struggling their summer then top-earner Ronaldo could be sold.
Spanish publication Sport claim Perez is looking into a possible deal for the attacker as the pair retained a good friendship after his departure.
It is reported Juve may sell their prize asset for a cut-price fee in the region of £52m – around half of what they paid.
The 35-year-old may not have too many big contracts left in his career before he is forced to retire.
And Ronaldo’s former Portugal international team-mate Jose Fonte has suggested the ex-Manchester United star could finish his career with Los Blancos.

“I know he loves Madrid, that’s for sure,” Fonte replied. “I think it’s clear that he loves Madrid.
“He loves the club itself, obviously it’s, if not the biggest club in the world, it’s one of the biggest.
“I know he’s left many, many friends there and he’s always left the door open so I wouldn’t be surprised if he goes back to Madrid.
“But I see it [being] a bit difficult to be honest.”
Ronaldo set a gigantic number of records during his nine-year spell at Real.
He is the club’s all-time record goalscorer after finding the net on 450 occasions.
The forward also became Europe’s most decorated footballer as he claimed five Ballon d’Ors.
