The situation around Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to Juventus is getting complicated by each passing day.
The Portuguese winger is in the headlines even when his national team crashed out of the World Cup last week. Cristiano Ronaldo is central to all the transfer news this summer, as various reports link him with a departure from Real Madrid.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 and has since been a pivotal figure for the Los Blancos. However, it seems that his time at the club is at an end, which Ronaldo seemingly hinted towards, after the win in the Champions League final as well. Juventus emerged as front-runners to sign Ronaldo, and reports claim that a deal has already been agreed for the transfer.
However, Marca today reports that Real Madrid has put forward one condition for Cristiano Ronaldo, if he wants to leave the club.
Earlier, the Madrid club maintained that the release clause for Cristiano Ronaldo will not be lowered, and the condition for Ronaldo is along the same lines as well.
The club has reportedly told Ronaldo that he will have to first publicly announce his desire to leave the club. If he does so, Real Madrid will let the Portuguese star go.
Marca reports that the club will be ready to lower Ronaldo’s release clause from one billion euros to 100 million euros – only if Ronaldo agrees to fulfil Real Madrid’s condition.
However, it is also reported that there has been no offer on the table from Juventus.
Earlier, the Portuguese winger’s agent, Jorge Mendes met Real Madrid’s general manager Jose Angel Sanchez to discuss Ronaldo’s transfer.
