Cristiano Ronaldo and Florentino Perez.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Florentino Perez are set to meet for the first time since the former’s move away from Real Madrid this summer.

The two exchanged messages when Ronaldo agreed his July move to Juventus, but as it was the summer, the player and club president weren’t able to bid each other a proper farewell – and there was slight controversy over the fact that Ronaldo, the club’s record goalscorer, didn’t get a farewell press conference.

Perez is reportedly looking to bring some normality to the relationship after that perceived snub.

Both will be in attendance for the Champions League draw in Monaco on Thursday, as the winner of the UEFA player of the year award will also be announced. Ronaldo is up against Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah and former Madrid team-mate Luka Modric.

Real Madrid have announced that they have completed the signing of Mariano Diaz from Lyon.

Just 14 months after being sold by the club to the French outfit, the striker is set to return.

Sevilla had agreed a €35 million deal for the forward but Madrid decided to trigger their first refusal, entitling them to his services for €22m after selling him for €8m.

Mariano was at Madrid from 2012 to 2016 but largely featured for the reserves, only making cameo appearances for the first team.

He is expected to bulk up Julen Lopetegui’s forward line currently consisting of only Karim Benzema and Borja Mayoral.
