Ronaldo determined to leave Spain

Maybe Ronaldo really wants to leave the Spanish giants, but what plagues everyone's mind is which club will buy the Portuguese star and for how much.

With Ronaldo's future at the club uncertain, Real Madrid are now rethinking their decision on Morata and according to AS, they are considering putting negotiations with Manchester United on hold. Ronaldo has been a Real Madrid player since he left Manchester United in 2009.

That has prompted speculation linking him with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United among others but Silva, who moved to Milan from Porto earlier this month, insists the four-time Champions League victor remains focused on his country's upcoming matches. "Despite the player's deep passion for Real, Ronaldo's decision is taken and the player wants to leave Spain shortly after the short holiday following the Confederations Cup", A Bola says.

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has told BBC Radio 5 Live it will be "difficult to change" Cristiano Ronaldo's mind if he has made a decision to leave the club, but he is sure that is not the case.

Portugal manager Fernando Santos was plied with questions about Cristiano Ronaldo on Saturday and eventually refused to carry on answering more inquiries on the subject.

The Sunday Times promoted Man United's attempts to re-sign Ronaldo.

PSG have always been interested in attracting the European Cup victor, and his addition could finally see the Parisians win the Champions League.

Ronaldo has helped Real win the Champions League three times, scoring twice in last month's final as they became the first club to retain the title, and he is also the competition's record goalscorer with 105.

News of Ronaldo's desire to longer play in Spain is huge, don't get me wrong. "There is no turning back", Ronaldo was quoted by Spanish newspaper Marca.

"I don't think he would go and play in China or the Middle East".

Spain's AS reported that Ronaldo had chose to quit Real two months ago, before the Champions League final victory, telling his agent Jorge Mendes and other close associates that he felt "badly treated and unjustly judged".
