Cristiano Ronaldo sparks transfer speculation frenzy after promising ‘big news’ on social media

Cristiano Ronaldo’s future continues to be a source of speculation and the man himself only fuelled the rumours last night.

The Real Madrid superstar was understood to be intent on quitting the Bernabeu at the start of the summer.

Well placed sources revealed that Ronaldo was upset by the allegations of tax fraud levelled at him in Spain and hurt by the lack of support from his club.

The situation compounded a sense that he is unloved at Real Madrid – a situation created by fans who have been quick to boo the club’s all-time leading scorer the moment he doesn’t perform.

Numerous clubs were quick to be linked with signing the four-time Ballon d’Or winner, among them former side Manchester United, Paris St Germain and Chelsea.

The situation seems to have calmed in recent weeks, but a social media post from Ronaldo last night sparked fresh speculation.

Posting a picture of himself in Ibiza, Ronaldo wrote: ‘Talking business in my favourite restaurant. Big news coming soon!!’
