Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio says that Cristiano Ronaldo and the Bernabeu outfit must always go forward together "hand in hand" amid continuing doubt over the Portugal captain's long-term future plans.

Ronaldo has scored an incredible 450 goals in just 438 games for Los Blancos and helped them win a fourth Champions League in the last five years with victory over Liverpool last month.

Cristiano Ronaldo - wearing a Real Madrid kit - is the image that EA Sports have chosen to promote its best video game, Federation Internationale de Football Association 19.

TeamTalk are citing a report from AS that claims Ronaldo has made a decision to leave Madrid after they refused to meet his salary demands following talks over yet another contract extension.

Asensio, 22, said of the Frenchman: "What Zidane did took us all a little by surprise, but my experience with him has been very good".

He said recently: "It's the right business thing to do and it's the right moral thing to do". He eventually went on to tell Bloomberg: "We actually encourage women".

Record claim that Ronaldo is not motivated by an improved deal but wants Madrid to make him an offer in recognition of his performances this season.

There's been a lot said since on both sides, with speculation around how serious Ronaldo really is, how seriously Real are actually taking it, and above all, how this could end.

Per Jose Felix Diaz of Marca, Neymar still believes he can secure a "miracle move" to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer, and Real continue to view signing him as their No. 1 priority.

The newspaper also reported that Ronaldo would prefer to stay in Europe after leaving the 13-time European champions and Italy, France or England could be his next possible destination. With the focus now shifting to the World Cup, top clubs have begun their work on the transfer front.
