Rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the Santiago Bernabeu have done the rounds in the media again, suggesting the Portuguese star is unhappy at the club. The reports claim that Ronaldo is unhappy about a ‘broken promise’ related to a new contract that he was due to receive.
It was only last month that everything seemed great, as Ronaldo picked up his fifth Ballon d’Or which cemented him as one of the best footballers to ever play the game. Also, very recently Zinedine Zidane stated that he expects Ronaldo to stay with Real until he retires. These rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt as the man himself has also stated on many occasions that he wishes to end his career at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Return To Manchester United On The Cards?
Cristiano Ronaldo has been excellent since signing for Real Madrid eight and a half years ago and losing him would be a huge blow for the club. His current contract runs until 2021 and the rumour is that Real president Florentino Perez promised to extend the deal and offered a pay rise.
However, the newest reports state that these promises have been broken and that there is no new contract in sight. Spanish publication AS state that Ronaldo feels let down by Perez and the club and even state that the player now wishes to return to his old club Manchester United.
It is also claimed that Manchester United are aware of this and will look to make an offer in the summer. Ronaldo’s relationship with Perez has not been great at the moment and it could cost the club dearly. Los Blancos have reportedly been looking at deals for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, who could act as replacements for Ronaldo, should the Portuguese superstar leave the club soon.
