Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has left the door open for the potential return of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zinedine Zidane.

Juventus signed Portugal forward Ronaldo in a sensational deal totalling 112million euros (£99.2million) earlier this summer.

Meanwhile, Zidane left Los Blancos in the summer after capturing an incredible three Champions League titles in a row, the third of which came when Real beat Liverpool in Kiev.

However, Perez has not ruled out the possibility of both returning.

“There are two figures that I want to refer to: the worthy successor of [Alfredo] Di Stefano and the club’s top scorer, Cristiano Ronaldo,” he said.

“During nine seasons, he has been a benchmark and his achievements will be recounted from generation to generation.

“He is an example for all those who wear the Real shirt and those who have the dream of doing so in the future. Thank you very much, Cristiano.

“Another of our great references is and always will be Zidane.

“As a coach, he has entered the history books as a giant of Real Madrid. He won nine titles in less than three years, with three Champions League triumphs.

“Zidane is Real Madrid and he knows, along with Cristiano, that this is their house forever. Thanks Zizou.”
