Ex-Real Boss: Los Blancos Should Sign This Star Instead Of Neymar

Moments after lifting a third consecutive UEFA Champions League trophy by beating Liverpool 3-1 in the final on May 27 (AEST), Ronaldo appeared to suggest he had already chose to leave Madrid, telling a television reporter on the pitch at Kiev's NSC Olympic Stadium: "It was attractive to play for Real Madrid".

Cristiano Ronaldo has been strongly linked with leaving Real Madrid this summer with Juve now the favourites to land the forward.

The supposed move to Juventus is rumoured to be in the region of 100-120 million Euros.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids, but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him".

Juventus declined to comment when contacted by Reuters, while Real Madrid said: "Our official comments are made through our official media channels".


The Portugal global is said to expect €30 million (A$47 million) per year to make the move - a figure that could rise to as high as €60 million (A$95 million) with Italian taxes.

Real Madrid explained in a statement according to UK Mirror.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid has been shrouded in doubt ever since Los Blancos defeated Liverpool 3-1 to win a third straight Champions League in May. Last month, he reportedly agreed to pay €18.8 million to settle his tax case.

Speaking after the game, Ronaldo said: 'We will talk in the future. Sources close to the player have told ESPN multiple times in the months since that the player is still unhappy with Perez for not keeping a promise of a new contract, and that he's bothered that Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar both earn more.
