The Portuguese will be invited back next year so Real can pay tribute to one of their all-time greats.
Now that the dust has settled following Ronaldo’s £100million switch to Juventus earlier this summer, Madrid and president Florentino Perez have decided to plan Ronaldo’s ceremonial return to honour his years of service.
He will receive an invitation back to Madrid for the 2019 edition of the Bernabeu Trophy with Juve.
The pre-season friendly has traditionally been used to celebrate the return of a former player, with club legend Raul gracing the Bernabeu pitch again with Al Sadd in 2013.
Iker Casillas was also the subject of such an offer in both 2017 and 2018, but Porto have been unable to fit the fixture in due to their hectic pre-season schedule.
The club are also planning to make several tributes to other former stars ahead of the 2019 Bernabeu Trophy and have placed it at the top of their agenda.
This year’s instalment will be played against AC Milan on August 11.
