Cristiano Ronaldo returns to Real Madrid training

Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to training with the squad following an extended summer break.

The Portugal international’s future has been the subject of much debate this summer, with reports early in the transfer window suggesting that he wanted to leave the European champions after being accused of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities.

Speculation that he is keen on a return to the Premier League surfaced again earlier today, but he has rejoined the rest of the squad in training after being given extra time off due to his involvement in the Confederations Cup

Ronaldo could face former club Manchester United in the European Super Cup on Tuesday.
