Reports have heavily linked Roanldo with a move away from the Bernabeu with the four-time Ballon d’Or winner believed to have made up his mind to part to ways with the European champions and is eyeing to take up a new challenge elsewhere.

Ronaldo is struggling to find form this season and has managed to score just one goal in La Liga so far this season.

And according to Spanish website Don Balon, Ronaldo has discussed his own transfer plans with Griezmann after Sunday’s Madrid derby.

Both players disappointed their fans and clearly struggled to get back to their best at the Wanda Metropoliticano.

Ronaldo again displayed sloppy form and failed to capitalise upon a late chance to win the game for Real Madrid, who are now 10 point behind current league leaders Barcelona.

Griezmann also displayed poor form and Atletico fans made their feelings towards the French striker known.
