Portugal international forward Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave Real Madrid, according to AS.
The defending La Liga and UEFA Champions League winners, who currently lie a huge 19 points adrift of leaders and rivals FC Barcelona in the Spanish top-flight this term, could lose the striker’s services over ‘unfulfilled promises’.
The 32-year-old, who has 147 international caps for his country, has scored 16 goals and provided three assists in 24 appearances in all competitions for Madrid so far this season.
Ronaldo, who arrived at the Bernabeu back in July 2009 following his then world record £80m move from Premier League giants Manchester United, has netted an astonishing 422 goals in 418 games overall for the club.
However, the report suggests the Portuguese striker wants to return to Old Trafford after becoming increasingly frustrated at Madrid and the delay in new contract negotiations.
Ronaldo is understood to have told team mates that he wants to leave Zinedine Zidane’s side.
He is valued at £108m by transfermarkt and scored 118 goals in 291 appearances in all competitions for United following his arrival from Sporting Lisbon back in August 2003.
