Cristiano Ronaldo is a free agent right now after his second stint at Manchester United came to an end in the aftermath of a controversial interview with Piers Morgan. With Portugal’s World Cup campaign coming to an end as well, the Real Madrid legend will now be looking for his next destination.

Amidst all this, he needs to maintain his fitness as well. And without a club at the moment, Ronaldo decided to return to his old stomping grounds in order to make sure that he is up to speed.

As reported by Relevo, Ronaldo is back at Valdebebas. After receiving the relevant permission from the club, he was able to have a different field than the one where the training of the first-team was led by Carlo Ancelotti. The Portuguese legend carried out a personal session to the surprise of many of those present at the facility.

Of course, such a decision will lead to fresh rumours of Ronaldo making a potential return to Real Madrid. But Los Blancos are not believed to be interested in bringing him back at this stage of his career. Also, it is not exactly uncommon for former players to use the facilities of clubs to remain fit while they are without a team.

It is safe to say that Ronaldo is one of the best players in Real Madrid history but at the same time, at 37 years of age, he is no longer the player that he once was.

We saw proof of that this season in his displays for Manchester United and also at the World Cup with the Portugal national team.

Thus, it might be best for Real Madrid to leave the memories alone and not bring Ronaldo back for a second run at the Santiago Bernabeu. We have already seen how his reunion with Manchester United turned out.

Ronaldo played for Real Madrid during his prime and won four Ballon d’Ors while at the club, and it should stay that way, even though a short spell might make some sense, considering Karim Benzema’s injury issues this season and Los Blancos’ lack of options in that area of the pitch.
