RON WANTS OUT: Cristiano Ronaldo ‘asks lawyers to help lower £879m Madrid release clause’ to force move

The 32-year-old, fresh from winning his fifth Ballon d’Or, has a £879million clause in his contract if other clubs want to land his signature.

But now he wants his representatives to strike a deal with Los Blancos so clubs won’t be put off by his extraordinary price-tag, according to El Chiringuito TV.

Ronaldo’s current deal expires in the summer of 2021 and will therefore be 36 when he will be free to talk to other clubs.

He was linked with a move away from the club in the summer after falling out with the Spanish press over his tax allegations.

Fresh reports in Spain claim that he was furious with the lack of support from Real president Florentino Perez at the time.

In the TV report, Edu Aguirre reveals: “Well, the situation between Real Madrid and Ronaldo has not only failed to improve, it is worse than ever.

“There has not been a single offer or renewal on the table from Real Madrid for Ronaldo, no offer for Ronaldo. And today, Ronaldo refuses to negotiate any kind of renewal with Real Madrid.”

Perez further fuelled speculation that Madrid are looking to move on by hinting that they would be interested in landing Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar.

He said last week: “Being in Madrid would make it easier to win the Ballon d’Or.

“Real Madrid is a club which gives all you need as a big player, everyone knows that I already wanted to sign him (Neymar) at one point.”
