Cristiano Ronaldo makes 'irreversible decision to leave Real Madrid'

LALIGA | FC Barcelona- Real Madrid: El gol de Leo Messi

"Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't own Real Madrid", Marcelo said.

"The same thing happened before Euro 2016 with Ronaldo and Pepe, when they both played in the Champions League final", Santos told reporters.

"In the coming days I'll give an answer to my fans, they've always been at my side".

Another summer and another time that Cristiano Ronaldo never wants to play for Real Madrid again.

Led by Ronaldo as Portugal were sent off to the World Cup at a Lisbon reception held by president Marcelo Rebelo De Sousa Wednesday, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor said: "What I can guarantee is a great ambition of all of us players and technical team". This follows yesterday's report in Record that the Portuguese had chosen to leave. "It was lovely to be at Real Madrid", the Portugal forward had told television network beIN Sports after the game.

Barcelona striker Lionel Messi has admitted that he would like Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar to return to the club.

The French champions have indicated that they are not prepared to sell the Brazil global, but Madrid have made no secret of the fact that they will attempt a put a deal together this summer.

The Argentine skipper earnings of £82.9 million, occupies second spot behind boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, with Ronaldo in third with £80.6 million.

Any hint of a rout disappeared with his withdrawal as Portugal appeared content to begin fixing their focus on the all-important clash with Spain on June 15 that will go a long way to shaping Group B.

The former Manchester United forward is also unhappy with Zinedine Zidane's departure.

Ronaldo will be looking to add to his 149 worldwide caps for Portugal having scored 81 times for his country, though only three times at World Cups.
