Real Madrid are reportedly ready to allow Cristiano Ronaldo to leave the club if they can find somebody to spend the £80million they initially paid for him, according to The Sun.
Ronaldo arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu six years ago, and despite him fast approaching his 31st birthday, club chiefs are aware that there is still heavy interest on him from some of Europe’s top clubs (via Sun).
And The Sun claims that Spanish football journalist Pete Jenson feels that though Real are publicly against cashing in on the player, the club’s hierarchy are secretly hoping to receive a huge bid for him in the near future.
The news will come as a huge boost to both Manchester United and Chelsea, who have both been recently linked to his signature (via Sun).
Ronaldo recently claimed that he would like to finish his career with dignity, meaning he could be more open to a return to the Premier League than heading off to see out his days in Qatar or the United States (via Sun).
And furthermore, Ronaldo has been at loggerheads with current Madrid boss Rafa Benitez, who has refused to mould the squad around the Portuguese superstar (via Sun).
