Cristiano Ronaldo may be about to permanently install himself into Real Madrid folklore by becoming the club's all-time top goalscorer, but his future at the club remains at the top of the agenda in the media.
The Portuguese stalwart needs just one goal to go above cult hero Raul and is odds-on to get it when Levante arrive at the Bernabeu for their annual drubbing on Saturday.
But away from the field, Ronaldo's entourage appears to be planning his exit strategy, with Florentino Perez and Co. happy to see the back of him.

Guillem Balague, who has regularly tried to keep Ronaldo's discontent in the Spanish capital on the agenda, believes the 30-year-old is one or two summers away from finally leaving the club and that Paris Saint-Germain is currently the destination of choice.
"He can physically play until he is 40, but there is a strategy in place from his people," he told Sky Sports.
"It looks like this could be the last season of Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid. It also looks as though Real Madrid aren't completely unhappy that this is the case. This sounds amazing, when you look at the records he's gained - probably the best goalscorer in their history.
"But perhaps Real Madrid believe he has peaked and I've got the impression these people are feeling PSG will be the best solution. Be it this summer or next summer, I don't think he will be at Real Madrid that long."
Old Trafford return
If Ronaldo ever does decide to quit Madrid then Manchester United are likely to at least try to coax him back to Old Trafford. After leaving six years ago in an £80million deal, fans and officials alike have pined for his return.
However, despite what appears to be an endless amount of money available to Louis van Gaal, a report in the Daily Mail claimed that the sheer cost of signing Ronaldo and paying his staggering wages would be too high.
PSG, on the other hand, are able–thanks to Michel Platini's infamous financial fair play backtrack–to dip their hands into the oil pits of Qatar and spend whatever they pull out on whoever they like.
