Real Madrid presidential candidate Riquelme targets Ronaldo return

Real Madrid presidential candidate Enrique Riquelme admits he'd be keen to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

Riquelme is set to challenge Real Madrid president Florentino Perez in this summer's club elections.

And on his transfer plans, he declared: "I personally asked our sports management if we can bring back Cristiano Ronaldo.

"But it will be up to them to choose. The executive and the sporting must absolutely be separated."

Former Real star Ronaldo has a deal with Juventus to 2022.
