Bad news for Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo has already left Real Madrid.
The Portuguese star was unveiled at new employers Juventus on Monday. Ronaldo, who is now 33-years-old, has joined the Bianconeri in a 100 million euro deal.
Real Madrid were happy to allow Ronaldo to leave. However Los Blancos were stunned earlier in the summer when Zinedine Zidane quit.
Zidane had just won the Champions League for a third time in three seasons. Few saw his resignation coming.
On Tuesday, news has broken out of Spain that Zidane could be about to join forces with Ronaldo at Juventus.
Zinedine Zidane is returning to Juventus
According to Libertad Digital, Zidane will return to Juventus in October as sporting director.
Apparently the Zidane-Turin comeback is confirmed by ‘sources close to the Agnelli family’.
Zidane is set to work alongside Fabio Paratici at the Allianz Stadium.
It’s claimed that the French World Cup winner wanted to stop working as a coach to work in the boardroom instead.

Zidane is a Juventus icon
It goes without saying that Juventus fans would be over the moon if Zidane returned to the club.
Zidane spent five successful seasons as a player in Turin before moving to Real Madrid in the summer of 2001.
At Juve, Zidane won the Serie A title twice, plus the Super Cup, Italian Cup and the Intercontinental Cup.
He was also a Juve player when he won the World Cup and European Championships with France in 1998 and 2000.
Not sure if it will be sporting director or a directors role. Either way, Zidane and Ronaldo? We are going places….. what a summer
