Cristiano Ronaldo Reportedly Looking for a New Team


43 - Ronaldo has scored three or more goals on 43 occasions in a match at club level, seven of those hat-tricks coming in the Champions League - a record he shares with Lionel Messi. "At this moment, he wants to leave".

They cite sources who claim Ronaldo is "deeply disillusioned" after it was claimed he had defrauded Spanish tax authorities out of 14.7million euros and that he feels he is "a victim of persecution".

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane broke off his holiday to call Cristiano Ronaldo in a bid to persuade his unsettled star not to quit the club, Spanish sports daily Marca said yesterday.

"He delayed his move to Madrid for a year because Ferguson was like a father to him", Calderon told BBC Radio 5 Live (via the Mirror).

This isn't the first time Ronaldo has threatened to leave Real Madrid, and he could just be after a new contract to offset any financial penalty handed to him from the courts.

Cristiano Ronaldo is in the spotlight again, but this time not for his skills as a player.

According to Italian football expert, Gianluca Di Marzio, Ronaldo has told his agent, Jorge Mendes, to do "everything he can" to make the move a reality.

There is, however, one big problem with this argument and that is the fact that Ronaldo signed a new five-year deal with Real only last November.

Spanish publication Don Balon have reported that Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Cristiano Ronaldo over his price tag.

He has also won two La Liga titles with the club he joined from Manchester United for GBP80m in 2009.

Ronaldo previous year extended his contract with the Spanish team until June 21, saying he wanted to end his career at the club.

But now it appears that Ronaldo is, in fact, not at all happy.

With United keen and interest likely to come from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and clubs from the Chinese Super League, they face a tough task to persuade the Portugal worldwide to move to Stamford Bridge.
