Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly held secret talks with Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in Spain.
Ronaldo has reportedly told the Los Blancos bosses that he will leave the club next summer as he is not happy with the new contract extension offer that Real Madrid have offered him.
According to Spanish website Don Balon, Ronaldo was furious after going through the details of the contract extension that the club want to offer him.
The Portugal skipper has been heavily linked with a move away from Real Madrid amid speculation that he no longer feels valued at the club.
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner wants a raise in his wage packet to be on par with arch rival Lionel Messi.
His departure could trigger a mass exodus at Real Madird, with fellow team-mates Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale also linked with moves away from the Bernabeu.
Real president Florentino Perez is now facing the heat and will do everything possible to keep Ronaldo at the club.
Reports claim that Perez has gone through Ronaldo’s demands and is working on offering an improved deal to Ronaldo, whose current contract will expire in 2021.
According to Spanish website Diario Gol, Ronaldo has held secret talks with PSG officials in a Madrid hotel.
The report claims that the Ligue 1 side are willing to offer Ronaldo any amount of money in order to convince the Portugal skipper to join their club.
Sources close to the club claim that Ronaldo would opt to stay at the Bernabeu if the Real Madrid bosses accept his pay demands, but would consider his options if he feels that he is not getting what he deserves.
Ronaldo has conquered the footballing world – breaking all goalscoring records since making a then world record move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.
However, he has seen a dip in his form this season.
The Portugal skipper has struggled to find form in the La Liga this season – with just one goal to his name in eight appearances.
It is believed that his current contract situation is a distraction and he will be looking to sort it out as soon as possible so that he can turn his attention on closing the gap on current league leaders Barcelona.
Zinedine Zidane’s side sit third in the La Liga table – 10 points behind league rivals Barcelona.
They return to action this afternoon as they host Malaga.
