Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly being eyed by Real Madrid in a move to sign him up and bring back the Portuguese international footballer to the Bernabeu for a second time.

According to the Mirror, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner could make a return to Real Madrid this summer transfer window as the Spanish giants are keen on a sensational reunion with Ronaldo.

Ronaldo is still under contract at Manchester United until 2023 with the option to extend a further year. The 37-year-old striker has created another historical season with much-needed goals for the club. Despite the team's poor and inconsistent performance, Ronaldo has scored 23 goals in 35 appearances — 17 goals in the Premier League.

Reports about Ronaldo planning to exit Old Trafford has been in the headlines as Man Utd is unlikely to qualify for the Champions League. United have been largely damaged due to defeats by Manchester City, Everton, Liverpool and Arsenal. In addition, the newly appointed manager, Erik ten Hag, reportedly plans a new strategy and a team rebuild – wherein Ronaldo will not be guaranteed to play every game. Ten Hag plots a future built on high energy and youth, which also triggers rumors of Ronaldo leaving Man Utd.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo has caught the attention of Bernabeu officials, who are now plotting to set up a LaLiga return for him. His performances in England made influential vital figures at the club wanting a Ronaldo comeback, knowing he would be a great addition to the team who will bring secured goals in LaLiga. On Saturday, Carlo Ancelotti's side were announced as champions as Real Madrid grabbed the LaLiga title after a 4-0 victory over Espanyol.

Ronaldo scored his 100th Premier League goal in the team's 3-1 defeat over Arsenal, which was followed up with the equalizer earning Man Utd a 1-1 draw with Chelsea. Real Madrid is reportedly more than open to welcoming their all-time top-record goalscorer back to the club. The club failed to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, with the French player turning down a massive £172 million ($215 million) offer. While Ronaldo's fee reportedly would not cost more than £10 million ($12 million) in an up-front fee.
