The relationship between the Portuguese striker and Florentino Pérez is not in the best terms, which may see the end of CR7’s time with the Spanish giants.
All it took was a baffling season, and Real Madrid seems ready to part ways with their all-time top scorer.
Following reports by Marca about a possible delay in the contract negotiations between Los Blancos and Cristiano Ronaldo, another report by Portuguese newspaper Record revealed that CR7’s agent Jorge Mendes has been encouraged by Florentino Pérez to hand in offers to let the striker leave this summer.
According to this report, Real Madrid’s main man doesn’t believe that CR7 deserves a wage increase this season, considering his sloppy form in La Liga and the team’s lackluster performance. Meanwhile, the player has voiced his disconfort over Perez’s lack of interest in offering him a new contract extension, which would make him one of the best paid players in the world alongside Lionel Messi.
With that in mind, Mendes has been given a green light to start searching for potential job opportunities for the five-time Ballon D’Or winner. If one of those satisfies Florentino Pérez, we may be witnessing Cristiano Ronaldo’s final months as a Real Madrid player.
