Cristiano Ronaldo has rejected a new contract at Real Madrid, and told Florentino Perez he wants to leave on June 30, according to reports in Spain.
Following Los Blancos’ 3-1 reverse against Tottenham in the Champions League, he revealed he was not looking to sign a new deal.
However, he insisted he was happy at the club.
Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre, who works for TV station El Chiringuito, claims the superstar is “angry” with Real Madrid following the deal which is currently on the table — and has told Florentino Perez he wants to leave the club on June 30.
Aguirre also claims Ronaldo has asked the president to allow him to leave for a “reasonable price”.
But that the request was unequivocally rejected — and that has only worked to worsen the superstar’s anger towards the club.
Aguirre further explains the decision “has been made” and this is not a financial matter, but that the four-time Ballon d’Or-winner feels he deserves more affection from the club.
Ronaldo believes the offer on the table is one more sign of how little Real Madrid value him.
Aguirre insists the ex-Manchester United man is a “Madridista” — and loves the fans.
However, he needs more love from the club.
In the summer, reports were rife Ronaldo, 32, wanted to leave the Bernabeu.
But he was eventually convinced to stay by Perez.
Ronaldo has endured a difficult start to the current campaign, with just one La Liga goal all season.
