Sporting Lisbon has interest in Cristiano Ronaldo returning to the club to finish his career.

Ronaldo began his professional career with Sporting before his transfer to Manchester United. Ronaldo will play against Sporting this week in the Champions League.

Sporting president Bruno De Carvalho told Marca: "Yes, without a doubt, I would love for Ronaldo to end his career here, at home.

"He represents a lot for us and it would be beautiful if he could end his career here. He is a world ambassador. He always speaks well about us and how fond he is of us."

Ronaldo is expected to sign an extension with Real Madrid.
