Cristiano Ronaldo Jr rejoins Real Madrid academy days after father trained at club while searching for free transfer

    CRISTIANO RONALDO JR returned to the Real Madrid academy just days after his father trained with the first team.

    The 12-year-old scored more than 50 goals in 20 games for Los Blancos’ age group sides before leaving for Manchester United.

    And he is now back in their youth set-up as he looks to continue to make a name for himself.

    Journalist Edu Cornago confirmed his return to the Madrid academy on Tuesday.

    It comes just days after his dad, Cristiano, was training with Real’s first team.

    He has been linked with a shock return to the Bernabeu – where he spent nine sensational years from 2009 to 2018.

    The Portuguese superstar, 37, scored a remarkable 450 goals in 438 games for the Spanish giants.

    He then departed for Juventus where he claimed two Serie A titles.

    A return to Man Utd then came about in the summer of 2021, with Ronaldo bagging 24 goals in his first season back at Old Trafford.

    However, his second campaign was a far more frustrating one as he was largely benched by manager Erik ten Hag.

    Eventually, after just three goals in 16 matches, his contract was ripped up following an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.

    He went to the World Cup as a free agent and returned after a quarter-final exit with Portugal.

    Real Madrid have been allowing him to train with them while he searches for a club.

    But a second stint in the Spanish capital seems unlikely.

    A transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr appears to be the frontrunner in a deal that would see Ronaldo pen a £173-million-a-year contract.
