Ronaldo's Friend: Real Madrid Superstar Wants More Money

Cristiano Ronaldo's Friend: Real Madrid Superstar Wants More Money

By Kurt Buckerfield - May 30, 2018 09:25 AM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo recently hinted he could quit Los Blancos, and now a friend of the Portuguese has claimed the player wants more money at the Spanish giants.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see the five highest paid players at Real, according to Total Sportek.

Following his side's 3-1 UEFA Champions League final win over Liverpool this past weekend, Ronaldo stunned many when, in a post-match interview, he suggested he could be on his way out of the club.

The 33-year-old hinted that he is not completely happy at Real at the moment, and according to a journalist and friend of his, Nuno Gomes, the player's issue is his current earnings.

"The two will come to an understanding," Gomes told El Larguero.

"He is the best player in the world. If you look at how he is paid, Cristiano is very underpaid and he wants a sign from the club, like Barcelona did with Xavi, (Andres) Iniesta and (Lionel) Messi.

"They renewed them bit by bit. That makes you happy, content and you get money from the club."

Gomes went into further detail about the situation, claiming that Ronaldo was promised a bigger wage would be offered to him.

"He was promised that the club would renew and raise his wage," he added.

"When he asked the club, they said it wasn't the moment. The season finished and nothing happened.

"He feels a bit put out, sad because they didn't stick to their word."

Ronaldo scored 44 goals and assisted a further eight strikes in 44 games for Real in the 2017/18 campaign.

When Madrid signed him, the President made it clear he want to win Uefa champions league since they last won the cup 2001/2002 it was seven years without European glory for the Los Blancos, he then came and now he have won them 4 Uefa champions Leagues...if they also promised to raise hes pay they have to stick to their promise as he also did by giving them glory through the years hes being with them. if you remember well before his arrival Barca were dominating Europe.

Akahambe nentliziwyembi, he failed to even celebrate Bale ' s moment of brilliance, the brilliance which gave him the platform to claim that his name deserves to be engraved on the cup. Yoo his face turned red nje ngenxa yomona.

I knew it, he is indirectly requesting a pay rise by threatening to leave Madrid because he thinks he deserves better than Messi.Unfortunately
