Ronaldo Makes An ‘Irreversible’ Decision To Leave Real Madrid

GETTYPhilippe Coutinho is predicting Mohamed Salah to shine at the World Cup

Electronic Arts - commonly referred to as EA - has revealed the cover star of Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, and once again it's the Portuguese and Real Madrid phenom, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo became one of the best players in the world during a six-year spell at Old Trafford before sealing a then world-record move to Madrid in the summer of 2009.

The reports from the front page of Diario Record featured the headline "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision", in a story which the publication seems to have taken from comments made by Ronaldo directly after the Champions League final. Meanwhile, there's never any shortage of faithful Messi followers who believe the Barcelona player should be the cover of every game ever.

Record claims that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor has reached this conclusion, less than two weeks after winning his third straight Champions League with Madrid, not because of money but rather status, and because of unkept promises from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

The Neymar soap opera shows no sign of abating after the player was caught with a Real Madrid emissary whilst in Liverpool with the Brazilian national team. "I don't know when".

"I am only missing Roberto Firmino saying he got a cold because a drop of my sweat landed on him", Ramos told Spanish newspaper AS after he was heavily criticised for tangling with Salah, while he was accused of deliberately elbowing Karius.

"I guess it would be necessary to recognise more Real Madrid's three titles, with due merits, no other thing".

In the current 4-2-3-1 setup, the double-pivot stays deep and full-backs do not tend to stretch play, so opposing teams were able to crowd out the four most advanced players.

"Right now we need to enjoy ourselves but in the next few days I'll give an answer to the fans who have always been by my side".

In football, cash is king, and while the World Cup is a welcome break for most of us from the ludicrous transfer fees and ever rising price of replica shirts, there's still an terrible lot of money involved.
