    But he has seen a number of avenues blocked off in the transfer market.

    Ronaldo spent nine years at the Bernabeu, scoring 450 goals in just 438 games while winning two titles and four Champions Leagues.

    Real missed out on signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, leaving a potential gap open for a new forward.

    However, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has brutally ruled out a reunion with Ronaldo this month.

    But Perez laughed off the notion before saying: “Again? He’s 38 years old!”

    It means Ronaldo is increasingly edging towards a Man United stay, with seemingly no takers this summer.

    As for Real, it remains to be seen whether they make any more signings after winning last season’s Champions League.

    Antonio Rudiger was snapped up from Chelsea on a free transfer.

    And the club paid £72million for promising Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

    Real have also bid farewell to several players. with Marcelo, Gareth Bale, Isco, Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral all departing.
