Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo Brings In Lawyers To Negotiate Bernabeu Exit
The former Manchester United forward was ‘outraged’ after being accused of evading €14.7 million (£13m) in tax by Spanish prosecutors – and had threatened to leave Real Madrid last summer.
Ronaldo eventually opted to stay at the Bernabeu when Real Madrid issued full support to the four-time Ballon d’Or winner in the wake of tax evasion charges.
But, reports suggest that Ronaldo is disappointed with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who wants to replace him with PSG hero Neymar in the near future – and this has not gone down well with the Portugal skipper.
And according to Spanish TV station El Chiringuito, Cristiano Ronaldo is now considering a move away from the Bernabeu.
The report says that the Portugal skipper has asked his lawyers to strike a deal with Real Madrid to lower his stratospheric release clause.
And Ronaldo is trying his best to make sure that his release clause is lowered so that other clubs could launch bids to sign him.
His current contract with Real Madrid will run out in 2021 and by that time he will be 36.
He got on the scoresheet in Real Madrid’s club World Cup win over Al Jazira on Wednesday.
