Isco hopes Cristiano Ronaldo stays at Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane shock

365 days later and writing about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid seems like the same thing from previous year but this time the club have told him to go and find a buyer.

At the end of last month, the Frenchman left his post as Los Blancos manager, which came as a surprise to many as it came just days after he oversaw Real's UEFA Champions League final win over Liverpool.

Ronaldo became one of the best players in the world during a six-year spell at Old Trafford before sealing a then world-record move to Madrid in the summer of 2009.

'It was very nice to be in Madrid, ' he said.

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

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.

Meanwhile, according to Marca, Madrid have told Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes that they are unwilling to match the player's demands.

"Cristiano doesn't own Real Madrid so if the president wants to sign somebody he will do it", Marcelo said.

Ronaldo has a place in the list's top three for a sixth successive year, while Neymar has moved 13 places to fifth after his €222 million move with PSG in 2017.

"Along with this Ronaldo is not happy with the priority that is being given towards bringing in Neymar and Zidane's departure was another blow as little by little he has lost allies at the club like Pepe, Coentrao and James Rodriguez", the publication further stated.

Jorge Mendes has been contacted by the Portugal worldwide - who is now training with his compatriots ahead of this summer's World Cup.
