News of Cristiano Ronaldo’s displeasure with certain issues at Real Madrid has been making the news in recent weeks.
Reports say the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has fallen out with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez. The reports say the Portuguese star is unhappy that he earns less than both Lionel Messi and Neymar even after just claiming the Ballon d’Or.
There are also reports that he has asked for his €900 million release clause be reduced to €90 million so as to facilitate a move away.
New reports now suggest that former club Manchester United is pondering over a move to sign the superstar. The English giants are known to be in the market for attacking signings and as a result, are linked with many star forwards – they have been linked with Ronaldo many times in the past.
Their Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho recently claimed the club need to spend more in the transfer market if they are to keep up with rivals Manchester City and is now said to be considering a move for Ronaldo – a player he managed at Real Madrid.
It is still unknown if these reports are true but we definitely haven’t heard the last of this story.
Any potential move will most likely occur over the summer but the chances are rather slim considering the player’s age and even though he is expected to play at the top level for a few more years, his relationship with Mourinho is still unclear and might be a factor.
