After Karim Benzema and Zinedine Zidane, another Real Madrid member has fueled the speculations of their former star man’s return.

Vinicius Junior has left the door wide open for Cristiano Ronaldo’s potential return to Real Madrid speculations by saying he “will always be welcome” at the club.

Ronaldo has been heavily linked with an exit from Juventus in the aftermath of the Serie A champions’ yet another failed European campaign.

Juve were kicked out of the Champions League at the hands of FC Porto last week, as they were in the 2019/20 season and the season before. After three successive eliminations at the last-16 stage, the Binaconeri have reportedly given up the hope that their marquee signing could lead them to continental glory.

In other news, intense criticism from the media and fans alike has left the Portugal captain frustrated and even he no longer wants to stay in Turin beyond this season.

Juventus CEO Fabio Paratici has played down the 36-year-old’s potential exit saying the rumors “make him laugh” while also insisting that he is the future of the club.

Paratici’s comments, however, have had no effect on the speculations, and now another Real Madrid member has added fuel to the fire after Karim Benzema and Zinedine Zidane.

“Cristiano is a legend at this club. He has achieved a lot,” Vinicius told TNT Sports

“I can’t say much because I don’t know what’s going on, but he will always be welcome.”
