Other Juve players who returned to training on Monday after Euro 2020 commitments include Holland star Matthijs de Ligt, French midfielder Adrien Rabiot and Sweden’s Dejan Kulusevski.
However, it was Ronaldo the fans wanted to see and the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was happy to sign autographs and pose for photos outside Juve’s training base.
The Portuguese star has been linked this summer with moves to some of European football’s elite clubs, including a return to Manchester United and a possible move to French giant Paris Saint-Germain.

However, Juve have quickly turned down the prospect of selling Ronaldo as they prepare to improve on last season’s disappointing fourth place under new boss Massimiliano Allegri.
Ronaldo has scored 101 goals in 133 appearances for the Bianconeri since joining the club from Real Madrid in the summer of 2018.
The Portuguese star has enjoyed a successful spell at Juve; winning two Serie A titles and a Coppa Italia during his three seasons in Turin.
