While speculations about his next club continue, with many believing the Portuguese captain will succumb to the Saudi outfit Al-Nassr’s call, Ronaldo has decided to train at Real Madrid’s Valdebebas base until his future is decided.

According to Spanish outlet Relevo, the Portuguese captain went with his son, Cristiano Junior, to ask for permission from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to use the Valdebebas training complex to keep fit as he is currently without a club.

The 37-year-old Portuguese star made this request a few days following his country’s defeat to Morocco in the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Real Madrid’s president, Perez couldn’t refuse Ronaldo’s request and immediately gave him the green light to use their facilities, reportedly telling the beleaguered former Manchester United forward: ‘Of course, this is your home.’

Cristiano Ronaldo is the highest goal scorer in Real Madrid’s history and won four Champions Leagues and two La Liga titles in nine hugely successful seasons at Santiago Bernabeu.

Ronaldo looks to keep himself in good form as he searches for a new club following his miserable departure from United and his country’s World Cup exit.

The five-time Ballon d’Or holder has been a free agent since mutually terminating his contract with Manchester United last month following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.

The aftermath of the explosive interview saw his contract at United terminated. Recall that he said in the interview that he felt ‘betrayed’ by the club and that he ‘didn’t respect’ United manager Erik ten Hag.

Before the interview, there’s been a report of unruly behavior from the five-time Ballon d’Or winner where he refused to come off the bench and headed down the tunnel prematurely after United’s victory over Tottenham.

Ronaldo was fined and the United boss, Ten Hag dropped him from the first team as a punishment for his insubordination.

However, the drama didn’t stop at Old Trafford as it extended into the Portuguese camp during their stay in Qatar.

Ronaldo was dropped by Portugal head coach Fernando Santos for their World Cup matches with Switzerland and Morocco.

Ronaldo came off the bench in both matches but was unable to make any significant impact as they were knocked out in the quarter-finals by the African nation, Morocco.

This later resurrected reports that Ronaldo has continued with his old attitude as he threatened to walk out on Portugal.

However, the 37-year-old Portuguese captain and the country’s football federation instantly denied the report.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been linked with a potential move to Saudi Arabia’s outfit Al-Nassr following his contract termination at Old Trafford.

So far, there is nothing official on the talk that Ronaldo’s next destination will most likely be Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr.

While many think Ronaldo will sign for Al-Nassr following Portugal’s World Cup elimination in the quarter-final phase, it appears Ronaldo ignores the move as he returns to Madrid on a limited basis to decide his future.

It remains to be seen which club the 37-year-old Portuguese captain will move to but his future is likely to be decided imminently, with a big-money move to a Champions League club according to his ambition.
