Italian club Juventus might not be Cristiano Ronaldo’s final club of a glittering career. The former Real Madrid player has hinted that he could make a return to one of his previous clubs in the future.
The 33-year-old moved to Turin from Real in the summer of 2018. He has since been in prime form for the Serie A champions, and has dominated the show even at this age.
Ronaldo had started his career at Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon. It was during that time that former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson noticed him, and brought him to the Premier League club.
Now, Ronaldo has hinted at a return to his maiden club sometime in his career.

“Will I return to Sporting like Nani? In football, you never know,” he told Fox Sports (via CalcioMercato).
Ronaldo signed a four-year contract at Juventus upon making the switch to Turin, and things could very well change after the completion of this deal.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner may be tempted to move back to his native country, where it all started for him. This will indeed be a huge moment for both the club and the fans.
Ronaldo’s former Manchester United teammate, Nani, moved back to Sporting in the year 2014. He was loaned out to several clubs following the 2014-15 season by the Red Devils, for whom he made 230 appearances.
