Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has indicated that he will not sign a new contract at the Spanish side once his current one expires in the summer of 2015, alerting both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
Ronaldo's future has been a hot topic in recent months and, after admitting that he was happy at Madrid, he has now indicated that he will not sign a new contract once his current one expires.
The club don't want to sell Ronaldo this summer, but ex-club Manchester United and mega-rich Paris Saint-Germain are both very interested in signing the Portuguese winger.
The 28-year-left United in 2009 in order to join Madrid and the deal was the highest transfer fee ever in football at a staggering £80m, but over the past season the player has indicated that he is unhappy in Spain.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez once stated that he expects the player to retire at the Bernabeu, but it now looks like he could lose his star-man within two years as it doesn't look like the winger wants to stay at Madrid much longer.
If Madrid refuse to sell him and let his contract run-out, they face losing him on a free, which means they will have lost out on the £80m they signed him for four years ago.
Ronaldo has been linked with a move back to Manchester United, but as Sir Alex Ferguson has officially retired, it remains unclear to whether the Portuguese international would still want to play for United under new manager David Moyes.
