According to OK Diario, Ronaldo has reached an agreement with Real to reduce his buyout clause for the current transfer window.
The agreement was reportedly reached between the end January and the beginning of February, initially reducing Ronaldo's buyout clause to €400 million (R6.4 billion) and later even further to €120 million (R1.9 billion).
Unlike his previous €1 billion (R16 billion) clause, the new release clause would actually allow the 33-year-old to leave the club should a sizeable offer come in.
However, this fee is only reportedly applicable for clubs outside of Spain, and not the likes of FC Barcelona and other LaLiga teams, while it would also not apply to Paris Saint-Germain.
Right now, the Portugal captain is focused on A Selecao's next game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup against Uruguay, but once he returns from Russia he will have a decision to make.
Ronaldo is Real's all-time record scorer with 450 goals in 438 appearances, and has lifted 16 trophies with the Spanish giants.
