Cristiano Ronaldo unhappy at Real Madrid, could make shocking move out of Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t too happy with Rafael Benítez‘s appointment as Real Madrids coach. At least, that’s what Spanish site EcoDiario is reporting this Friday. Cristiano Ronaldo has been playing almost every match ever since he joined Real Madrid, no matter whether he was tired or not. Rafael Benítez has a strong tendency to rotate his players constantly, and that could affect Ronaldo‘s numbers considerably, so this report is worth considering.

Ronaldo is capable of being such a dominant force statistic-wise because of the number of matches he plays. However, at age 30, the Portuguese player should definitely think about rotating more often from now, and Benítez is the perfect coach on that matter. If Benítez can give Ronaldo some rest while keeping the player’s trust, Real Madrid’s star should be more ready than ever to play the decisive matches in March and April.

It should be noted that Ronaldo showed his support for Carlo Ancelotti after Real Madrid’s last game of the season, saying that he wanted to ”work with him” next year. Ronaldo was probably aware of Real’s interest in Benítez by that time and wanted to share his thoughts on that.









That sort of overt power move is, it seems, indicative of Ronaldo’s relationship with Real Madrid president Perez, described elsewhere in the Spanish press today as ”a marriage of convenience.”

At times over the past year, particularly around the time of the 30-year-old’s controversial birthday party, he reportedly felt that he didn’t receive enough support from the club.

This all ties into an annoyance that super-agent Jorge Mendes is supposed to have with Florentino after he chose to hire Benitez rather than Mendes’ first choice (and client, of course) Nuno – currently in charge at Valencia.

Were Ronaldo to leave the Bernabeu, Paris Saint-Germain would be the frontrunners for his signature.

‘Ronaldo is Not Coming Back to United’ says Di Maria

Angel Di Maria has said there is little in the rumours regarding Cristiano Ronaldo’s possible return to Manchester United.

Di Maria left Real Madrid last summer, when he became the most expensive signing in the history of the Premier League.

Madrid cashed in on the former Benfica man for £59.8 million, but are unlikely to do the same for Ronaldo.

I don’t think that he will return here, it is very difficult to leave Real Madrid,” Di Maria said on local radio, according to ”He is doing very well there – therefore, I don’t see a reason why he would want a change.”

Ronaldo, 29, signed a new contract with Madrid in September 2013, keeping him at the club for a further five years.

Indeed, Madrid have always said they are not willing to sell their prized asset and his agent Jorge Mendes revealed recently that he would end his career in Spain but could then move to play in the United States.

Di Maria, who has a good relationship with Ronaldo, spoke in November about the Portuguese, who recommended him to sign for United. Back then, he said: ”He told me that I would be happy here and that it was a great opportunity for my career.”


Ronaldo’s agent dismisses chances of Manchester United return

He’s staying right where he is and will play into his 40s, insists the world’s most powerful football agent.

Cristiano Ronaldo has no interest in leaving Real Madrid to return to play for Manchester United, insists his agent Jorge Mendes.

United have been looking at bringing the Portuguese star back to Old Trafford since the summer amid rumours that he has become unhappy in the Spanish capital.

However, Mendes told Spanish radio station Cadena COPE on Wednesday evening that the 29-year-old will be going nowhere for a decade or more.

(If JOE were a trashy tabloid, we’d change that to FOR A DECADE OR MORE for emphasis. But we’re not. So we didn’t.)

”Cristiano is very happy at Real Madrid and has always been very happy. He’s going to break all the records with Real Madrid and he’s going to retire here,” said Mendes, happily finding a crawlspace inside the forward’s rear end.

”He has a lot of love for United because his heart was there for six years, but now he’s only thinking about Real Madrid and he’s going to stay here forever.

”He’s incredibly happy. It’s one thing to respect the people who remember him but he’s with Madrid to the death. We didn’t receive any offers for him because people know that it’s impossible to take Cristiano from Real Madrid, therefore, it’s not worth it to even call and ask about him.”

Mendes’ eulogy did not end there. In fact, he was only getting started.

”He gets better every time and he’ll continue to get better into his 40s,” he said.

”Along with being the best player, he’s the best athlete in the world. Nobody compares to him. There won’t be anyone like him for the next 500 years. He’s a very humble person and a family man. A fantastic father. He’s the son any mother would love to have. He’s concerned about others. There are so many great things about him that it’s impossible to list all of them.”

Mendes added: ”Cristiano’s dream is to win another Champions League. He’s dreams are always short term. He’s never satisfied and he always wants more. He never stops surprising me. It’s impossible to find anyone like him in the history of sport.”

Cristiano Ronaldo could return to manchester united claims ex-Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon

Cristiano Ronaldo could be tempted to return to Manchester United because he is ‘fed up’ at Real Madrid according to former Los Blancos president Ramon Calderon.

Ronaldo made his name at Old Trafford before moving to the Santiago Bernabeu outfit in an £80 million deal – at the time a world record fee – in 2009.

The Portuguese star has gone on to win one La Liga title, two Spanish cups and a Champions League crown while in the Spanish capital as well as picking up the prestigious Ballon d’Or award earlier this year.

And with Real having endured a poor start to the new league campaign and having sold several big-name players over the past few seasons, Calderon claims that Ronaldo could move back to his former side United because he is unhappy at the club.

‘My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president [Florentino Perez],’ Calderon told talkSPORT.

‘When he came with [Arjen] Robben, he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team.

‘[Gonzalo] Higuain was sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di María this summer.’

He added: ‘When I signed him in 2009, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United.

‘He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.’

It is believed that Real will ask for about £60 million to sell Ronaldo next year – with both United and their rivals, Manchester City, thought to be preparing bids to try and lure the 29-year-old back to England in the coming months.

Angel Di Maria hints at Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United move

Angel Di Maria has dropped a transfer hint that will have all Manchester United fans waiting on tenterhooks with anticipation, after he let on that Cristiano Ronaldo might not be happy at Real Madrid.

Over the course of the past week speculation has raged surrounding Ronaldo’s position at the Santiago Bernabeu, after the free-scoring forward made it known that he was disgruntled with Di Maria’s sale.

The former United star told Spanish sources that he wouldn’t have let his former teammate leave if it were his decision, conjuring rumours that he was becoming frustrated with Florentino Perez’s routine of selling big-name players.

Furthermore Perez was said to be annoyed at Ronaldo’s decision to go public on the matter, though these claims have since been denied by the man himself. Yet the fact remains that Madrid’s star man earlier this week reiterated his love for United, and opened up positively about the possibility of returning to play there before his career was done.

It’s a far-fetched idea for sure, particularly when its considered that he signed a new contract only last September – one that sees him earn £280,000-a-week – but Di Maria’s most recent comments made it ever slightly more feasible.

Di Maria hint

He [Ronaldo] was always there for me. I don’t know how long he’ll endure it at Madrid,” Di Maria said, according to ESPN.

”The Madrid president said he bought James Rodriguez because I wanted to go but I never said that. Cristiano always supported me because he knew I didn’t want to go, but these things happen and the club decided to bring in other players. The €75 million (£59.7m) they got through selling me was very good for the club.”

It certainly makes sense to assume that if Ronaldo does leave Madrid the only club he’ll be moving onto is United, and Louis van Gaal has proven this summer that the days when the Red Devils were reluctant to pay a king’s ransom in order to entice a top player are over.

Cristiano Ronaldo Hints at Manchester United Return in Future

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has reaffirmed his desire to return to Manchester United before the end of his career.

The 2013 Ballon d’Or winner left Old Trafford in 2009 as one of the club’s greatest ever players and has often spoken of his fondness for the 20-time English league champions.

And though Ronaldo‘s contract with Real – with whom he won the Copa del Rey and the Champions League last season – has another four years to run, the 29-year-old has already set his sights on returning to United.

”I love Manchester,” Ronaldo told The Daily Telegraph. ”Everyone knows that — I have said it many times. Manchester is in my heart. I left many good friends there, the supporters are amazing and I wish I can come back one day.

”I am happy here in Real Madrid and have four more years but in the future you never know, because they treated me unbelievably there.

”I really did love being at Manchester United,” he added. ”Believe me, they will be a good team again, I’m sure of it. It is a great club.”

Ronaldo has watched on as former Real teammate Angel di Maria moved to United while Radamel Falcao, who was heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu, has also joined Louis van Gaal’s side.

United’s record-breaking transfer activity during the summer has come following a campaign where, under David Moyes‘s reign, the club failed to qualify for the Champions League.

But Ronaldo is confident his former side can return to English football’s summit, saying: ”This can happen. Bad moments and good moments. Manchester is passing through a bad moment. Last year it was a horrible season and this year they haven’t started well either.

”But I do think they did well to buy Di Maria and Falcao. I think the team will be much better. I want to see them better because it is such a fantastic club and they deserve to be better. Falcao is a very good signing. He is a very good player.”

Are United secretly trying to bring Cristiano Ronaldo home this summer

CaughtOffside today report that secret talks are going on between Manchester United and Real Madrid to broker a deal worth a staggering £70 million to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back to Manchester. It is believed Real are willing to let the Portuguese Ace go to help them in moves for the Colombian pair James Rodríguez and Radamel Falcao, and Florentino Perez is eager to accommodate the two however he can.

Though it is heard every summer that we are back in for Ronaldo, and last summer it was believed to be one of the deals David Moyes was looking to make as a statement of his intentions, the credibility of a move rises each time it is mentioned. On top of the reports today, writer Dan Green had the good fortune of meeting Cristiano Ronaldo’s sister whilst on holiday, and asked the obvious question ‘Is he coming back to United?. The answer? ‘We still have a place in Manchester’. Where that is not a yes or a no answer, she isn’t about to tell a lad she hasn’t met before a definite answer, and that is as encouraging as you can get in my opinion.

It is also believed that, to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, Real Madrid must appease FIFA and their new rules if they are to go on a similar spending spree to last season, where they paid out over £120 million on three players, Gareth BaleAsier Illaramendi and Isco. United too are looking at the financial implications of a move for their former star, with a pot of a reported £200 million available, and only £60 million used so far a bid is affordable, and the commercial aspects of any transfer being heavily considered by the Glazers.

The rumours can sometimes become tiresome with regards to the return of Ronaldo, but the evidence on show this time around looks to be encouraging towards him moving back, and still leave money for the much-needed central midfielder and central defender to be brought in during this window too. Any United fan that says they wouldn’t want him back would certainly be lying to themselves and others, his 118 goals in 292 appearances between 2003 and 2009 helped herald in the most successful period of the clubs history (with regards to trophies per year), and his record in Spain only makes the desire greater, 252 goals in 246 games for Madrid, to get him back in the famous red shirt. Nothing is done until the contract is signed and he is officially announced, but as far as pre confirmation buzz goes, this is enough to make my mouth water and the funny, tingly feeling in my stomach to grow. He may well just return yet.

Gareth Bale: Cristiano Ronaldo is the best and He is a very big part of why I wanted to come here

Gareth Bale landed in Spain yesterday as the most expensive footballer on the planet, but declared: ‘Ronaldo is still the boss.’

Bale: “He is the best player in the world. He is a very important factor in why I wanted to come here. The team is full of players who are best in the world in their positions. There is nobody better than Cristiano Ronaldo; I am looking forward to playing with him and with the others. I think we will win a lot of trophies together” 

And he explained that he still has a lot to learn in his new club and that he cannot be compared to the Portuguese forward:

Ronaldo is the best player in the world and I want to learn from him He’s the boss. I want to try to help the team. I don’t think I need to help him. He has already shown that he is the best in the world. It is amazing being here and I want to start this challenge and with luck dominate the Liga


The best player in the Premier League was extremely happy to sign for Real Madrid:

This is a dream for me. Like the president said, they have made a big effort for me to come here and it has been my dream from the beginning and I would like to thank him for it. I am delighted that my future is starting here. I have always followed Spanish football and it is an incredible league. I have always liked Real Madrid. I have followed them my whole life”.

The Welshman also discussed how his signing had come about and what it was like for him:

They started to talk to the club and everything went normally. I spoke with Florentino Pérez and he made me feel comfortable. He made me feel very welcome and I am grateful for that. It has been a relief and exciting. Last night, at last, I discovered it had been decided and I am delighted to be here. I can’t describe it”.

Ronaldo Wants ‘Manchester United Return’

Cristiano Ronaldo has informed Manchester United that he wants to return to Old Trafford one day probably next summer according to The Guardian’s Daniel Taylor.

It would not be a move that would be forced by Gareth Bale’s impending arrival at Real Madrid but because Ronaldo wants to finish off his playing career at the place where he became the player he is today.

Speaking about the possibility of a move, Taylor said: “Cristiano Ronaldo has informed Manchester United he would like to return to the club one day, probably to end his career, after a summer in which the Premier League champions have explored the possibilities behind the scenes of bringing him back from Real Madrid.”

Taylor goes on to say that a move for Ronaldo would not happen this summer and that he would pledge his immediate future to Madrid but that next year, a move may materialise.

If Ronaldo was to come back to Old Trafford next summer, he would be 29 – the same age as Robin van Persie when he joined – and would have at least a couple of years playing at his peak, so it would be fantastic for the club if we could make it happen.

Ronaldo knows how much he is loved by United fans, the cheer when his name was announced in the Champions League match at Old Trafford reminded him if he had forgot, and United would no doubt be willing to fork out financially but whether Madrid would be willing to let him go is another matter altogether.

Ronaldo in no rush to sign new Real Madrid deal

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has insisted he is relaxed over his future despite interest from Manchester United.

The 28-year-old has yet to sign a new contract at the Bernebeu, even though Carlo Ancelotti is confident he can keep the Portuguese out of United’s clutches.

Real are hoping to close out a deal for Gareth Bale before the window closes, as they seek to wrest the La Liga title back from Barcelona.

But Ronaldo appears to have slammed the door shut on returning to Old Trafford, declaring that he is happy at the Bernebeu.

”My contract renewal is not something that worries me at this point,” Ronaldo told Spanish paper AS.

”These things develop naturally and sooner or later there will be clarity.

”Things are going well and my contract situation is not a problem for me.

”I am happy with the way things are going. It’s not as if the world is coming to an end.”

Ronaldo has netted an astonishing 200 goals since joining Real for a world record fee of £80m in 2009.
