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.
