Real Madrid star and World Footballer of the year, Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly very much set for a departure from the club next summer window.
That is the latest development as regards the Portuguese goal-bomber who wants to force a summer exit, according to reports.
Ronaldo has reportedly told the Los Blancos board that he wants to depart at the end of the 2017/18 season.
And there are various reports already suggesting that he will force a transfer if Madrid fails to grant his desire.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo has reportedly vented anger on his side over the new contract of Barcelona attacker and rival, Lionel Messi.
The Portuguese skipper is reportedly not really too happy with Los Blancos over Messi’s new long-term deal with the Blaugrana.
After a few months of rumours, Barca confirmed late last month that the Argentine international has signed a new deal.
And that very new contract will see Messi stay put at the Camp Nou Stadium until the summer of 2021.
The 30-year-old reportedly has a tempting buyout clause which is within the range of €700m (£626m).
Meanwhile, there has been an increment in Messi’s weekly pay to £525,000, around £90m over the duration of the deal.
That amount simply now implies that Messi’s pay each and every week is around 50% more than that of Ronaldo.
And that is due to the fact that Ronaldo currently earns in the region of £360,000 weekly with Los Blancos.
According to a report emanating from Diario Gol, Ronaldo was livid when he heard the news of Messi’s fresh contract.
That is the situation as he has failed while trying to increase his own terms in the last few months.
