– Cristiano Ronaldo has rejected an offer to sign a new deal with Real Madrid
– The 33-year-old led Los Blancos to their 13th Champions League title after beating Liverpool in Kiev
– He wants to earn as much as Lionel Messi and Neymar before extending his contract with the Spanish League giants
Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo has not changed his mind on dumping Real Madrid this summer over alleged breach on promise.
The 33-year-old became the first player to win five Champions League titles in the history of the competitions after leading the Galacticos to their 13th UCL triumph last month in Kiev.
Ronaldo claimed he was promised an improved contract by Madrid board after conquering Europe in 2017, but only offered a deal earlier this year, which led to the former Manchester United to stall on signing a new contract till the end of the season.
Ronaldo’s representative Jorge Mendes has met with Los Blancos president Florentino Perez and Jose Angel Sanchez on Tuesday over the issue but no conclusion has been reach.
Ronaldo was offered €25 million-a-year deal– increasing to €30 million-a-year depending on the performance of both Ronaldo the individual and Real as a team.
However, the deal is nowhere near the salaries of Neymar (€37 million) and Lionel Messi (€50 million) reasons the 33-year-old rejected the deal.
Madrid chiefs were said to have expressed their anger towards Ronaldo’s agents following his comments after their Champions League victory in Ukraine on Saturday, May 26.
The former Manchester United star referred to the Real in past tense during his remarks after the game.
Ronaldo has been impressive for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit – leading them to four Champions League wins in the last five years.
The striker, whose release clause stands at €1 billion has reportedly told his employers to allow him leave, and for the first time the Bernabeu hierarchy are receptive to the idea.
But it remains to be seen if the latest spat will end in a handshake, a ceremony and a new deal – or whether Ronaldo will finally wave goodbye to the Spanish capital.
Naijaloaded previously reported that Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to leave the club this summer and make a return to Premier League side Manchester United.
Ronaldo has been superb for Los Blancos this season as he has helped the club qualify for the final of the Champions League where they will face Liverpool.
The 33-year-old Portugal international has scored 42 goals in 41 games, including 15 in the Champions League.
