London: Spanish football giants Real Madrid are ready to stun the football world by putting star striker Cristiano Ronaldo up for sale for a staggering 150-million-pounds.
According to reports, the news of the possible transfer has emerged after Ronaldo had a training ground row with Madrid manager Jose Mourinho.
Club president Florentino Perez is reluctantly willing to listen to offers.
Madrid paid a world-record fee of 80 million pounds to Manchester United in 2009 and Perez has said he would want to make a significant profit to appease the supporters for the sale of their best player.
Ronaldo, after all, was seen as Madrid`s answer to the dominance of Barcelona.
While there would be numerous suitors for his signature, even top clubs will balk at the astronomical fee and the player`s wages.
At Madrid he commands a salary of 20m euros a year, leaving him with 12m euros net - more than 200,000 pounds a week.
The two Portuguese are said to have clashed over tactics used in the Champions League semifinal.
