Report: Ronaldo's Wish To Quit Real Is 'Irreversible'

Cristiano Ronaldo dropped a transfer bombshell straight after the UEFA Champions League final, and new reports suggest his decision to leave Los Blancos is "irreversible".

The Portuguese suggested, after lifting his fifth Champions League trophy – more than any other player since the revamp of the competition’s format in 1992 – that he could leave the club in the current transfer window.

"Now is the time to enjoy this," he said on the pitch after the final whistle, as quoted by ESPN.

"And in the coming days you will have my answer to the fans, the ones who have really been on my side. It has been very nice being at Real Madrid."

The 33-year-old later elaborated on his comments in the mixed zone, saying: "These are situations which have been coming a long time and you put up with it, but sometimes you lose control. These things are not fixed with money, I have that, that is not a problem for me."

It has since been reported that Paris Saint-Germain are keen to lure him with a big-money offer to France and new reports by Portuguese daily Diario Record claim his decision to leave Los Blancos is "irreversible".

It has been suggested that money is not the main factor for Ronaldo's decision, but rather "unkept promises" by club president Florentino Perez.

However, it is a widespread belief that the superstar wants a salary closer to Neymar's PSG yearly deal (€36 million, R543 million) and Lionel Messi's new FC Barcelona annual salary (€46 million, R694 million). Ronaldo currently earns about €21 million (R317 million) a year, which is less than half of Messi's annual income.
