Real Madrid are said to be prepared to risk losing Ronaldo as they insist he is only worth €30m per year, a €7m increase on his current salary of €23m.
Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid this summer and his decision is "irreversible", according to reports in Portugal.
When rumours surfaced this time last year of a possible departure, the club dismissed such rumours citing the contract renewal of November 2016, which now sees Ronaldo bound by contract until 2021 with a 1 billion euro release clause, as evidence of the 33-year-old's long-term commitment to the club. As a result, he's angry and disappointed to the point he's looking for an exit.
The five-time Ballon d'Or victor was given time off after helping Real Madrid lift the Champions League trophy for the third consecutive season - and fourth time in five years - following a 3-1 win over Liverpool on May 26 in Kiev.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are reportedly edging close to a sensational deal for the Portugal captain, Ronaldo.
