Cristiano Ronaldo likely to leave Real Madrid over unfulfilled promises

Cristiano Ronaldo likely to leave Real Madrid over unfulfilled promises

Real Madrid want Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club but "the door is always open" for Neymar, left-back Marcelo has said.

Speaking at the Festival Naturhouse Inclusive Football Sevilla, Del Bosque didn't want to go too deeply into Ronaldo's comments after the Champions League final last month, when he suggested he would leave Madrid. Meanwhile, there's never any shortage of faithful Messi followers who believe the Barcelona player should be the cover of every game ever.

The AEAT is said to have finally agreed to a more lenient punishment than it had initially sought after accepting the player's explanation of how he pays tax on earnings from the image rights contained in his Real Madrid contract.

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

Manchester United will be willing to let David De Gea join Real Madrid this summer but only if they are able to negotiate a deal for Jan Oblak, according to reports in Spain.

Ex-Real and England manager Fabio Capello last week claimed it was Ronaldo's desire to finally return to Old Trafford and reunite with old boss Mourinho.

Buffett told CNBC on Thursday that the CEO will probably be announced within two weeks. Public companies owe it to all of them to get this right, they said.

Marcelo was also asked about Sergio Ramos and Roberto Firmino as the fallout from the Champions League final continued.

"I guess it would be necessary to recognise more Real Madrid's three titles, with due merits, no other thing".

Both Ronaldo and Neymar have cut agitated figures recently and both players could move on from their respective clubs this summer. "But whether you truly get value for money is a question that only fans can answer".

In football, cash is king, and while the World Cup is a welcome break for most of us from the ludicrous transfer fees and ever rising price of replica shirts, there's still an very bad lot of money involved.

"For a sixth year in a row I am the top scorer in the best competition", Ronaldo said.
