Spanish TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones reported this night that Cristiano Ronaldo recently told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that he wants to leave the club next summer.

Apparently, and according to that very same report, Perez’s answer was “no”, assuring that Madrid will not sell the Portuguese star. El Chiringuito did not explain why Ronaldo wants to leave the club.

Either way, this comes barely a few months after Portuguese paper A Bola reported that Ronaldo was going to force a move away from Madrid during the summer of 2017. Ronaldo didn’t deny those rumors but ended up staying in the Spanish capital after completing a brilliant season with the club which resulted in a historic La Liga-Champions League double.

It will be interesting to see if this report gains some more traction during the next few days although neither Ronaldo nor the club are expected to address these rumors.
