Ambitious Money-Grubbing: Real's Ronaldo Longing for Salary Equal to Messi's

Corrigan's source confirms that only France's Ligue 1, the English Premier League and maybe Italy's Serie A are seen as viable destinations.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor does not consider a move outside of the Europe to be an option at this point, the source made clear - ruling out the possibility of the 33-year-old moving to MLS, the Middle East, China or Japan.

Spanish outlet Diario Gol, as quoted by Sky Sports, is reporting that Real Madrid are keen on a deal to sign De Gea this summer as they look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.

Sources close to Ronaldo confirmed to ESPN FC in January that the Portugal captain wanted to leave the club after a new contract delay. Portuguese newspaper A Bola had reported that the forward wanted to leave the club as he was not happy with how he had been treated by Real.

Recent talks between Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes and Real's top-brass haven't helped bring an agreement and the talisman's decision is "irreversible" unlike a year ago, Diario Record, a Portugal daily, has claimed. However, Ronaldo is believed to seek sums equal to the salaries of Barcelona's Argentinian forward Lionel Messi (40 million euros) and Paris Saint Germain's Brazilian striker Neymar (81.5 million euros).

I just - my touch, my feel. "He has an opportunity, the likes of which if you look in history, few people have ever had". Monday Eastern time - at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa off Singapore's southern coast.

Real Madrid themselves appear to be playing hardball, and President Florentino Perez maintains that Ronaldo is under contract for another three years and will therefore will remain in the Spanish capital for the foreseeable future. It's not like Neymar can't get in because Cristiano is in the team.

Real Madrid want Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the club but "the door is always open" for Neymar, left-back Marcelo has said.

Ronaldo scored 44 goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 44 matches for Real in the 2017/18 campaign.

Indeed, even in the bask of glory following Champions League final victory over Liverpool in May, the star dropped a big hint over his future.
