Cristiano Ronaldo’s relationship with Real Madrid is at breaking point and the Ballon d’Or winner is ready to force through a transfer, according to fresh reports in Spain. The Portugal international has looked frustrated at the Bernabeu this season, with his form in La Liga suffering as Los Blancos have slipped to fourth spot in the table – eight points behind leaders Barcelona. He was heavily linked with a summer transfer, with PSG and Manchester United both muted as potential destinations, after growing frustrated with his treatment by the Spanish press during a tax scandal. Ronaldo also felt he received a lack of support from Real president Florentino Perez at the time, and, according to El Chiringuito TV, that rift has grown even bigger in recent weeks. The Spanish television show reports that Ronaldo is refusing to negotiate with Real over a renewal on his current contract, and is now ‘closer than ever’ to leaving the Bernabeu.
