"Ronaldo vai sair do Real" reads the newspaper's front page today.
According to a report from ESPN, Ronaldo is "determined" to end his nine-year stay in the Spanish capital, but will only make a switch to clubs playing in particular competitions.
They claim that Ronaldo is unhappy with the unfulfilled promises from club president Florentino Perez, and has finally made a decision about his future. The outlet reports that Ronaldo now earns €23.6m per season and had agreed with Perez to see that upped to €37m net after tax.
TeamTalk are citing a report from AS that claims Ronaldo has chose to leave Madrid after they refused to meet his salary demands following talks over yet another contract extension.
No new contract for Ronaldo?
LeBron James played NBA Finals with self-inflicted broken hand
The Cavs only scored 13 points in the third quarter, began with LeBron James on the bench in the fourth, and appeared to give up. The Cleveland Cavaliers went out with a whimper in Game 4 of the NBA Finals and were swept by the Golden State Warriors .
Manchester United were (of course) reported to be a possible destination for Ronaldo, who left them for Madrid nine years ago.
Ronaldo remained silent about his future but did speak about his team's chances at the tournament in Russian Federation at Belem Palace in Lisbon on Wednesday where he and his teammates gathered and had an audience with the country's president, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. The European champions kick off their campaign with an Iberian derby against Spain on June 15. "These players are examples for the children, just as they try to imitate how they head the ball, they also look at their behaviour".
Madrid, however, are not panicking while Ronaldo prepares for the World Cup with Portugal and will not be brow-beaten into a decision on his future.
"Anyone has your own opinion, you can say he's an "idiot" or not but I consider it's necessary always to have respect regarding your fellow professional".
In football, cash is king, and while the World Cup is a welcome break for most of us from the ludicrous transfer fees and ever rising price of replica shirts, there's still an bad lot of money involved. The group stages are going to be very hard but with the players that we have, we can think big. "It's a privilege to represent our nation and let's see what awaits us".
