Ronaldo's Real Madrid Return

Ronaldo's Real Madrid Return

Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to training with Real Madrid so could be in contention for the UEFA Super Cup against former club Manchester United this week.

The forward was back in training for the first time since helping Real land successive Champions League titles, which then saw him head off to Russia to represent Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

Having enjoyed a break, if that's the right word to use given his tax case had been ongoing this summer, Ronaldo was back on the training pitch with Real over the weekend, welcomed back by his teammates and Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.

Now working on his form and fitness - almost certainly maintained during his off time knowing Ronaldo - the Portuguese is simply looking to get back his match fitness and sharpness.

However, according to reports on Sky Sports, Ronaldo has again told the club he wants to leave and return to the Premier League as he didn't have problems, like he's having in Spain, during his spell in England.

Sky said: 'Cristiano Ronaldo told a Madrid court last week he wants to return to England, Sky sources understand. The Real Madrid forward appeared in court last Monday to deny he had evaded about £13m in tax by using three off-shore companies based in the British Virgin Islands.'

Adding: 'Ronaldo told the court he believed he had paid more tax than he should since he moved to Madrid eight years ago. At one stage during his 90-minute appearance, Ronaldo said: "I never had these problems in England. That's why I want to go back there".'

Jose Mourinho has played down Man United interest, insisting it would be impossible to re-sign the forward with it claimed neither club (United) or player want a 'media circus surrounding his future.'
