'I Will Be Hurt If Cristiano Ronaldo Leaves Real Madrid'
With Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly close to joining Juventus, a former player who is still affiliated with Los Blancos has admitted he will be hurt if the Portuguese quits the club.
Michel Salgado spent 10 years with the Spanish giants, winning four LaLiga titles and two UEFA Champions League trophies during his time with the club.
The former right-back has now weighed in on reports suggesting Ronaldo could soon join the Bianconeri, conceding that he will be not be happy to see the 33-year-old go.
"Personally, if he is going, it will hurt me because I have been with him for six months," he said, according to Sportskeeda.
"He was leaving his mark in Real Madrid or he is still doing it, but I know him pretty much, and when he takes a decision he goes ahead no matter the consequences.
"But, if Cristiano is not going, we will have him for the biggest moments because he is a phenomenon. But if he finally decides to go, we have to wish him all the best and thank him for everything.
"I am worried that he is going but that is a personal decision and lowering the release clause worried me as well."
Ronaldo has scored 450 goals and set up a further 131 strikes in 438 matches for Real since joining the club in 2009.
