Real Madrid selling Cristiano Ronaldo could be the most interesting and shocking news of the year. The Spanish sports magazine Don Balon reported the news regarding the Los Blancos side and their talisman Portuguese.
Less than a month ago, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes reported about an offer from China. A Chinese club offered Real Madrid a massive amount of $300 million as a buyout fees for Cristiano. Moreover, the player was offered $100 million per year salary. But Cristiano Ronaldo rejected the move in order to stay at Real Madrid. He wanted to compete at the highest level by staying in the Spanish capital. And the whole saga of the transfer ended.
The story took a new turn just a couple of weeks after Cristiano Ronaldo won the first ever FIFA Best award. Don Balon has reported a news from deep inside the Santiago Bernabeu. The club’s president Florentino Perez is reported to be fed up of Cristiano Ronaldo. He is nowhere near his best since the past 2-3 years. He had a spectacular 2016 due to his team-mates. 2016/17 has been his worst season up till now. He is performing really poor and seems to have lost his ability to pass the ball, create chances, and dribble past players. He only seems to be waiting in the penalty area for an easy tap-in chance from his team-mates. A team of the caliber of Real Madrid wouldn’t want to depend on an aging player like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo is currently the highest ever goal scorer of Real Madrid. He has scored 382 goals in 371 appearances since joining the club in 2009 for a world record fees. Perez and Real Madrid are planning to sell the Portuguese star to China by 2018. In this way, the money minded president of Real Madrid plans to get rid of the aging player and recover the amount used in purchasing him.
