Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid at the end of the season – but would cost any potential suitor up to £200 million according to reports in Spain.

Reports of Ronaldo’s unhappiness at the Bernabeu have been a common theme this season after the Portuguese winger admitted he was ‘sad’ at the way he was being treated by his club back in September.

Ronaldo’s discontent in Spain was reportedly due to lack of support he was receiving from Madrid in the battle for the Ballon d’Or in comparison to Lionel Messi at Barcelona, while it was also said to be based around a financial dispute.

Last week it was claimed that Manchester United have a £120 million buy-back option on Ronaldo, while Paris Saint-Germain have been credited with an interest in the world’s most expensive player.

Now El Confedencial claim that Real Madrid may seek up to €200 million should Ronaldo want to leave, a sum large enough to make even PSG wince.

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho insisted in September that Ronaldo, who has averaged more than a goal a game since joining the club in 2009, would not be leaving.

Whether the former Manchester United player will decide to leave at the end of the season remains in the balance, but the Spanish source also reports that Real Madrid are making contingency plans in case he does, and could target Neymar, Radamel Falcao or Manchester City’s David Silva.
