The Moment Cristiano Ronaldo Decided To Quit Real Madrid Revealed?

With many having speculated why Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to leave Real Madrid so badly, here is the moment, which reportedly upset him and broke his relationship with his previous club.

The 33-year-old dropped a transfer bombshell in the aftermath of the UEFA Champions League final, saying “it’s been really nice being at Real Madrid.”

He later explained that the situation has been coming a long time and that his decision is not based on money. So what did upset the club record scorer, who initially wanted to retire at Santiago Bernabeu, so much?

It has been widely reported that Ronaldo had been upset with president Florentino Perez for promising him a new contract after the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League but never sticking to his word after the superstar's slow start to the 2017/18 campaign.

And in January 2018 Real decided to agree to let him leave in case an offer worth €100 million (R1.55 billion) would arrive. It was a gesture to try and make him happy, but he saw it as insult, according to Marca.

"If I'm worth 100 million Euros it's that they don't love me," he said in January.

Marca claim it was this moment when Ronaldo decided to quit Real, seeing the devaluation by the club from his €1 billion (R15.5 billion) release clause to the €100 million as an insult.

On 10 July, Ronaldo’s Madrid chapter ended and his Juventus reign started. So far, he has lifted 28 trophies throughout his career, 16 of them at Los Blancos.

All those years of trying to catch up with the GOAT have caught up with him and now he's finished and running away... The GOAT will not stop, he'll remain the best player, the best scorer, the best passer, the best dribbler, and have the best vision ever seen. All that combined in one player...not merely a goalscorer that Penald'or is.

Good decision taken by CR7 in leaving Real after a thrilling achievement of 3 consecutive Champions League even though I thought he was gonna join Man Red but still a good move to the Italian Champions

As long Messi is inactive outside Barcelona,he will never reach Ronaldo's achievements,never! As long as CR7 will be at Juventus they will eventually have a Uefa Champions Cup.

@WinzaMan1, there's only one GOAT in the whole universe and that is Messi. So stop using refering to Ronaldo as that name. Call him something else that you want but not GOAT.
