Cristiano Ronaldo likely to leave Real Madrid over unfulfilled promises

Marco Asensio admits he can not imagine a Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo and believes the Portugal superstar still has a big part to play at Santiago Bernabeu.

These claims echo similar reports in Spain, in which 'AS' report that Jorge Mendes had meet with Madrid representatives but that the players and clubs demands were on opposite ends of the spectrum.

According to the magazine, Messi's annual salary and bonus were more than £59 million before tax, making him the year's highest-paid player, with endorsement deals with companies including Adidas and Pepsi adding to his fortune.

Ronaldo became one of the best players in the world during a six-year spell at Old Trafford before sealing a then world-record move to Madrid in the summer of 2009.

Reports in AS claim that Ronaldo is one of the few current Madrid stars who does not like the idea of Neymar arriving, as he is annoyed at the club spending €350 million on a new player when they can not find the money to improve his contract.

Manchester United agree deal to sign Brazil midfielder Fred
He will become the fourth Brazilian midfielder to play for Manchester United , following Kleberson, Anderson and Rodrigo Possebon. The Brazil worldwide arrived at Manchester United's training ground this morning to complete his £52million move to the club.

The reports from the front page of Diario Record featured the headline "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision", in a story which the publication seems to have taken from comments made by Ronaldo directly after the Champions League final.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are said to be the Real Madrid star's next destination if he leaves Bernabeu.

"To me, Ronaldo is the world's greatest right now and I have no doubt in my mind that Neymar will be just as good".

Ronaldo will be looking to add to his 149 global caps for Portugal having scored 81 times for his country, though only three times at World Cups.

It also puts himself at the front of the queue for yet another Ballon d'Or win which he has scooped five times already in his career.
