Madrid: The relationship between the World’s most valuable footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and his employer Spanish giants, Real Madrid is headed for splitsville, reports in Spanish media suggested. Apparently, Ronaldo has told the club president Florentino Perez that he wants to quit the club.
Earlier, Ronaldo ignited a huge debate by proclaiming that he is unhappy at Real Madrid. He made the shocking claim after he refused to celebrate his goals in the win over Granada on Sunday. According to Cadena Ser de Radio, the main issue is a falling out within the squad between certain players and that he does not feel 'valued' by the club.
According to Goal.com, one of the main reasons for the Cristiano Ronaldo sadness could be that he still has not renewed his contract with Real Madrid. Apparently, the player has been negotiating the renewal of his contract. But they have not yet reached an agreement. Due to a change of law in Spain, Cristiano Ronaldo will be taxed 52% of his salary not 23%, which has been the case earlier.
Ronaldo’s contract runs until 2015 and if Real Madrid renew his contract now, they may have to pay up to 30 million euros each year. They are paying about 15 millions now. Rumours have it that they are unwilling to do so.
Having three years left on his current contract, the former Manchester United superstar is shocked that no new deal has been offered to him.
"I`m sad because of a professional issue and the club know why. That`s why I didn`t celebrate the goals, because I`m not happy. The people [at the club] know why." he told reporters after the match."
"It`s nothing to do with Iniesta [winning European player award]. I won`t talk about this anymore and I will concentrate on Portugal for now. There are more important things [than this]."
"The people at the club know about this. I can`t say any more," he said on Sunday.
