Jorge Mendes, the agent of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, has confirmed that the player will not return to his former club Sporting Lisbon, despite his mother’s attempts to persuade him to return.
Ronaldo has become one of the greatest players in the world since leaving Sporting Lisbon for Manchester United for 12.24 million pounds (about 17 million dollars) in 2003.

The Portuguese captain turned into a state of great inspiration at Real Madrid after leaving Manchester United in 2009, where he broke the previous record in scoring goals in the competition with 450 goals.
Ronaldo joined Juventus 3 years ago, as his contract came to an end in 2022, and speculation is raging at the moment about the future of the 36-year-old player, at a time when Juventus and coach Andrea Pirlo face the risk of not qualifying for the Champions League next season.
Dolores – the mother of the five-time FIFA World Player of the Year – wants Ronaldo to return to Sporting in order to help the team win more trophies after winning the Portuguese League title this season after a 19-year absence.
“I will talk to him and try to convince him to return next year to the Alvaldi Stadium to wear the colors of Sporting Lisbon,” Ronaldo’s mother said in televised statements.
Despite this, Mendes ended speculation about the Portuguese player’s return to Sporting, noting that Ronaldo is not planning to return to his country yet.
“Cristiano is proud of the title that Sporting has achieved, and he has shown it publicly, but he does not plan to return to Portugal at the moment from his career,” Mendes said.
Ronaldo scored his 100th goal for Juventus in the match that his team beat Sassuolo 3-1 last Wednesday
