AS report that the Portuguese superstar feels that Real president Florentino Perez hasn’t kept promises about his long-term future at the Santiago Bernabeu and he has now run out of patience.
They say Ronaldo has already told a number of his team-mates that he wants to return to Old Trafford, where he played with distinction between 2003 and 2009.
After scoring twice in Real’s 4-1 Champions League final win over Juventus back in May, Perez promised Ronaldo a lucrative upgrade to his contract.
But no action has been taken and, despite Ronaldo’s public insistence that he wants to stay in Madrid, he is privately keen to get back to the Premier League.
The 32-year-old has struggled with fluctuating form this season, managing just four goals in La Liga but scoring nine in six Champions League outings.
He nonetheless won the Ballon d’Or award for the world’s best player off the back of Real’s La Liga and Champions League successes in 2017.
At United, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups and the Champions League, scoring 118 goals in 292 matches before departing for a world-record fee of £80million.
His achievements in Spain have been even more phenomenal, with 422 goals in 418 matches for Real.
This has translated into two league titles, two Spanish cups and the Champions League crown in 2014, 2016 and 2017.
He has also won three of the last four Ballon d’Or awards, bringing him level with Lionel Messi of Barcelona on five wins each.
Although Ronaldo earns in the region of £365,000 per week at Real, he trails the likes of Messi at Barcelona and Neymar at Paris Saint-Germain by some distance.
