Cristiano Ronaldo's national team coach has played down the chances of the forward leaving Real Madrid.

In case you didn't know.


A report in Spanish outlet Marca says that Real have set the price tag for Ronaldo and Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain will have to double the transfer world record if they want to bid. The motives behind his desire to leave the club, are yet to be revealed but the tax fraud issue is sited as the main reason.

The one thing that might stop Ronaldo from signing for Manchester United would be the current manager Jose Mourinho, who reportedly did not get along with the multiple-time Ballon d'Or victor during their time at Real Madrid.

Portuguese newspaper A Bola reports that the 32-year-old has decided his time in Spain has come to an end, adding he had communicated this "irreversible" decision as final to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

On Thursday Ronaldo, who signed a new five-year contract in November, posted a picture of himself with his fingers to his lips on Instagram with the caption "Sometimes the best answer it's to be quiet". If reports are anything to go by then United are looking to re-unite the the two Portuguese men in the summer transfer window.

It said that Ronaldo was "deeply disenchanted" with the allegations against him.

Calderon also believes that Jose Mourinho's presence shouldn't matter too much.

If Real can invest the money from Ronaldo into Kylian Mbappe, as well as getting De Gea, they'd be in a pretty good place but can they cope without Ronaldo's goals?

With Ronaldo's future at the club uncertain, Real Madrid are now rethinking their decision on Morata and according to AS, they are considering putting negotiations with Manchester United on hold.

Silva, who Ronaldo has tipped as his heir for Portugal, is loving the experience of playing alongside the four-time Ballon d'Or victor.
