Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Italy and will link up with his Juventus teammates for pre-season training ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.

Ronaldo was on holiday following Portugal's Euro 2020 exit at the hands of Belgium, but is due at the club's training ground on Monday.

The 36-year-old's future has been a subject of much speculation this summer with Ronaldo entering the final year of his contract. He has been linked with a move away from Turin, as Paris Saint-Germain keep an eye on his contract situation.

Ronaldo reportedly spent the last weeks in Mallorca with his family, returned to Turin in a private plane, according to journalist Romeo Agresti.

He is set to undergo medical examinations at the club before linking up with the rest of the squad. Juve vice-president Pavel Nedved revealed last week that Ronaldo would "stay with us". "Ronaldo will return to training on Monday and he will stay with us," Nedved told Sky Sport Italia (via AS).

He also provided an update on Paulo Dybala's future - another player who has been linked with an exit from the club. Nedved added: "[Director Federico] Cherubini has already been in contact with his [Dybala's] agent, who will arrive in Turin next week. We are in good time to get the situation resolved, it’s not a problem."
