Ambitious Money-Grubbing: Real's Ronaldo Longing for Salary Equal to Messi's

Adjust Comment Print

LaLiga president Javier Tebas, who is a Real Madrid supporter, has spoken about the possibility of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Los Blancos following his reported fallout with the club's board. Frustration over stalled contract talks is at the root of things, but the sentiment of deciding his future "in the next few days" has now stretched a couple weeks.

While Marcelo wants Ronaldo to remain in the Spanish capital, the Brazil full-back said the 33-year-old will not determine whether worldwide team-mate Neymar will arrive or not.

"It was very nice to be in Madrid", Ronaldo told reporters.

"We all want Ronaldo to stay and Neymar has our doors wide open", Marcelo said.

The appearance of the Cristiano Ronaldo factor has given hope to the Neymar operation however.

The Real Madrid all-time top scorer later attempted to clarify his comments, but only tangled the web further, saying: "I can not guarantee that I will stay at Real Madrid, but this is not the moment to talk, as Madrid have made history, but neither am I going to hide".

Ronaldo is Real's record scorer and has helped the club win four Champions League titles in the last four seasons.

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.

De Gea is no stranger to reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid after he came close to signing for the Spanish side back in the summer of 2015, before the deal fell through due to paperwork issues.

The world-record signing, at almost £200m, had a high-profile spat with Edinson Cavani over penalty taking duties, and Unai Emery found it hard to manage the big characters in the dressing room. He reportedly isn't happy with being paid significantly less than fellow stars Lionel Messi and Neymar, with the latter rumored to be of interest to Real Madrid.

"It was an important meeting. Thanks to them I have won so much".
