Real Madrid are ready to consider selling superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, but only if they get an offer of €200million (£106m) or more.
Ronaldo has caused turmoil at the La Liga champions since he publicly admitted being unhappy with his present situation at the Santiago Bernabeu, and a report in Goal.com claims the club are ready to sell if they cannot resolve the issue.
The Portugal captain’s unhappiness was first evident in the club’s 3-0 win over Granada, where he refused to celebrate either of the two goals he scored before making his post-match comments.
Theories of the reasons behind his statement ranged from a desire for more money, to too few of his Real team-mates believing he should win the Ballon d’Or.
Ronaldo dismissed the former in a statement last week, claiming the reasons were “professional” and nothing to do with wanting a higher salary.
Talks are ongoing between the two parties and a new, improved, contract is expected to be on the table soon, despite the assertions that salary is not the issue.
If no agreement can be found, the report claims Real will look to sell for twice as much as the world record £80million they paid Manchester United for him in 2009.
