Ancelotti breaks silence on CR7 links


Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has responded to the links about Cristiano Ronaldo possibly returning to the club.

Ronaldo's future at Juventus remains unclear after a disappointing 2020/2021 campaign for the club, who finished the Serie A season in fourth spot.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has also been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

Ancelotti reveals that despite his close relationship with Ronaldo, the forward still has a contract with the Old Lady.

"I am very close to Cristiano, but I do not like to talk about players at another club," Ancelotti said at his unveiling, as per Goal.

"He has a contract at Juventus. I can tell you I love him a lot, and I am happy to see him still scoring many goals, playing very well."

Ronaldo won his second UEFA Champions League title during Ancelotti's first spell with the Spanish giants between 2015 and 2017.
