Real Madrid Transfer News. Ronaldo Wants To Leave, La Liga Club Hoping To Snatch Neymar From Rivals
MADRID (Sporting Alert) — Real Madrid are ready to try and convince star forward Cristiano Ronaldo to extend his current contract, while reports are also claiming that the Spanish La Liga club is in talks with Brazilian sensation Neymar.
It is widely being reported that Ronaldo, no longer happy with the lifestyle in Spain, will quit Real Madrid once his contract expires in 2015, but the club is hoping to persuade him into sign a new deal in the coming weeks.
During the early part of the season, Ronaldo was certainly not happy, and the former Manchester United star let everyone around him know.
Recalled last September: “I am sad, and the people at the club know it, that is why I did not celebrate the goals.
“There are professional issues. I cannot say any more. We will see what happens.”
According to a report by Marca, the La Liga club president Florentino Perez doesn’t want to lose the Portugal international and is willing to offer him their best deal to keep him happy.
It is understood that a two year extension and a Lionel Messi-like wage, have been put together to help influence the winger’s decision in wanting to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu, but he’s still refusing to look past his current active deal.
After winning the domestic crown last year, Real Madrid have found themselves trailing Barcelona in the Spanish La Liga standings this season, following a number of inconsistent performances.
It is also understood that Perez is tracking Barcelona target Neymar.
The Santos FC scoring machine is seen as a hot favourite to join Barca, but El Mundo Deportivo reports that Perez is also hoping to land the forward and even met with him in “Switzerland during the Ballon d’Or gala.”
Real Madrid are hoping that it’s not too late, after reports that “a pre-contract agreement has already been struck.
The Los Blancos are desperate to pair both Ronaldo and Neymar together.
Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid for a word record £80m fee from Manchester United in 2009.
