The rift between Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid that began last summer continues with the club not feeling that it is the moment to improve his deal with the Portuguese wanting a new contract that will make him the best paid player in the world.
Having won FIFA’s The Best Award and picking up the Ballon d’Or, Ronaldo believes that he deserves the new contract and he does not like to see Lionel Messi, who renewed six months ago, and Neymar, earning more.
Real Madrid are passing through a difficult time on the pitch and the last thing that they need is something like this which upsets the internal order. It is not the time and also the way to approach the situation.
Instead it is the time to plan the strategy for the future and it is up to Ronaldo if he wants to be a part of this. There have been no offers for Ronaldo so far, and the club wants to keep him, but with several approaches from clubs in recent days it will be seen whether his challenge is real or not that he is ready to walk away.
