'There Were Serious Problems Between Ronaldo & Perez'

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo cited a desire for a new challenge when he left Real Madrid for Juventus earlier in this transfer window, but it has now been claimed that the Portuguese had major issues with Los Blancos president Florentino Perez.

Simeone Clarifies His Messi-Ronaldo Comments

After announcing that he was considering an exit after the UEFA Champions League final last season, it was said at the time that Ronaldo was frustrated that the board had not yet offered him a new deal.

However, the Portugal captain stated that he was chasing a new challenge at his Juventus unveiling, but former Real player Pedja Mijatovic believes his decision to move on was down to his strained relationship with Perez.

"It wasn't a decision made in the heat of the moment," he told A Bola.

"Maybe the reason was because of the strange relationship between Cristiano and Florentino.

"I don't know what happened exactly but, from the outside looking in, there's no doubt that there were serious problems between the two.

"I don't think it was a decision made in the heat of the moment. It was the end of a process which began a while ago, which grew and culminated with this end result."

Mourinho Sends Juventus A Warning After Ronaldo Signing

Ronaldo scored an incredible record number of 450 goals in 438 matches in his nine years at the Santiago Bernabeu, and remarkably lifted the Champions League trophy on four occasions during his time in Madrid.
