C. Ronaldo Threatens To Leave Real Madrid If He’s Not Paid As High As Messi
Real Madrid’s Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has reportedly told his bosses at the Santiago Bernabeu to pay him as much as what his arch-rival, Lionel Messi, earns at Barcelona.
He threatened to leave if he was not paid as much.
According to reports from Europe, the 32-year-old talisman demanded a whopping £17m pay rise that will increase his earnings at the La Liga and UEFA Champions League reigning champions to £35.5m.
Reports claimed Ronaldo is frustrated by Real president, Florentino Perez’ refusal to offer him an improved contract after he was promised one when he helped Real to a La Liga and Champions League double last season.
Ronaldo signed a five-year deal in November 2016 that will see him stay at the club till 2021.
He has also been linked with a return to Manchester United.
