Reports: Why FC Barcelona Want Cristiano Ronaldo To Stay At Real Madrid
It has been reported that FC Barcelona want Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Los Blancos.
Recent speculation has it that Ronaldo wants to leave the Spanish giants, with it being believed he felt the club did not support him when news of tax fraud allegations against him broke last week .
However, it has also been said that the 32-year-old made his decision two months ago, with the latest drama surrounding him making him want to leave the Santiago Bernabeu even more.
However, according to Spanish publication Diario Gol, Barca chiefs are hopeful that the Portuguese will stay at Los Blancos as they fear the money their rivals could make from his potential departure will allow them to go on a massive shopping spree.
It is believed that Manchester United are plotting a £183 million (R2.9 billion) move for Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata, which could see goalkeeper David de Gea going the other way.
The funds raised from the superstar's exit could then see Real land other potential big-name targets, such as Kylian Mbappe and Paulo Dybala.
