Former Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has cancelled his trip to Madrid to visit his ex-teammates at the Santiago Bernabeu before he starts to train with his new team Juventus.

According to a report in Italy Il Corriere Dello Sport, Ronaldo won't make a return to Spain in a bid to avoid the risk of meeting with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Perez and Ronaldo are not on good terms as the Portuguese forward feels that Perez did not do enough to defend him from tax fraud accusations.

Ronaldo will train with his new team for the first time on 30th of August, his first appearance with the Italian Champions will be 12th of August at the Villar Perosa in a friendly game.
