Cristiano Ronaldo is extremely media-savvy and only talks to reporters when he wants to get a specific message across - usually to his current employers, Real Madrid.

But the Portuguese star landed himself in hot water with his controversial post-match comments after Real Madrid’s 1-0 defeat to local rivals Atletico on Saturday.

Ronaldo said Los Blancos would probably be top of La Liga if the rest of his teammates were at his level - and everything has subsequently gone a little crazy over the past 24 hours.

According to Spanish broadsheet El Confidential - brought to our attention by Goal - Cristiano’s comments will hasten his exit from the Bernabeu and a move could now happen as early as this summer.

The report adds that Florentino Perez, Real Madrid’s president, is sick of the three-time Ballon d’Or winner’s attitude and hopes to replace him with Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

Lewandowski would join Real Madrid

Lewandowski, according to a report from the Telegraph last month, has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid but was prepared to sign a new contract at the Allianz Arena if Perez and Zinedine Zidane wanted to stick with the ‘BBC’ - the acronym widely used in Spain for the attacking trio comprised of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano.

The situation may have changed after Ronaldo’s latest comments - although finding a club prepared to pay the astronomical figures required to sign the 31-year-old could prove difficult.
