The Portuguese star made clear his sadness is not a matter of money, as some journalists speculated. The Spanish media started to report that he wanted to leave the club, but it is obvious that he's not looking for that either. He probably wants more support from the club in his FIFA Ballon D'Or race. Here's the whole statement released on his social media accounts:
That I am feeling sad and have expressed this sadness has created a huge stir. I am accused of wanting more money, but one day it will be shown that this is not the case. At this point, I just want to guarantee to the Real Madrid fans that my motivation, dedication, commitment and desire to win all competitions will not be affected. I have too much respect for myself and for Real Madrid to ever give less to the club than all I am capable of. Abrazos to all madridistas
