Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother mounts pressure on son to join her football club

Cristiano Ronaldo’s mum Dolores has vowed to persuade her son to make a spectacular return to Sporting Lisbon.

The superstar is being heavily linked with a move away from Juventus and his mum made the assurance as she celebrated Sporting’s first league title in 19 years.

Ronaldo started his professional career with the Verde e Brancos, before he moved to Manchester United in August 2003.

He then moved to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 and was picked up by the Bianconeri after nine years in the Spanish capital.

His future at the Allianz Stadium is uncertain, as Juventus are struggling to finish among the teams in the Champions League and Ronaldo has been linked with a move away from the club.

The hypotheses have been a return to Madrid or Manchester, with Paris Saint-Germain reportedly interested in the 36-year-old too.

But with Sporting CP preparing for the Champions League in 2021-22, his mother told fans she would try to lure the European Champion back to the Primeira Liga.

“I will talk to him and try to convince him to return next year,” she said, captured by TVI 24.

“To the Alvalade Stadium and to wear the colours of Sporting.”

She posted a video of herself on her Instagram story dancing and singing after Sporting’s triumph.
