Cristiano Ronaldo's plan amid Real Madrid exit rumours involves Manchester United

The reigning Ballon d'Or victor claimed he will be talking about his future in the days to come, but is yet to reaffirm the club's fans that he is staying in Spain for another year.

Real Madrid full-back Marcelo insists that Neymar "will play" for the club one day, and insists that Cristiano Ronaldo would not be able to block a move for the winger.

According to a report from ESPN, Ronaldo is "determined" to end his nine-year stay in the Spanish capital, but will only make a switch to clubs playing in particular competitions. "But whether you truly get value for money is a question that only fans can answer".


After recent days brought reports of meetings between Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes and senior Madrid figures not bringing any progress, the media in his home country of Portugal claimed his decision to leave remains "irreversible".

Record claims that the five-time Ballon d'Or victor has reached this conclusion, less than two weeks after winning his third straight Champions League with Madrid, not because of money but rather status, and because of unkept promises from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

"But Ronaldo is at the best club in the world and I think that he should finish his career here. It is hard to be at a better place than Madrid, the best club in the world, but life is not just about glory".


The injury, which some feared may keep him out of the World Cup healed in time for him to fire past Croatia in a friendly at Anfield last weekend.

Neymar met new PSG manager Thomas Tuchel last month, and the German said: "I met a very friendly, very open guy for the first time".

"It was an important meeting". "I don't know if it is for trophies, the season, the quality of the player".


The 26-year-old is perhaps the only player available to Real Madrid who would be capable of taking the limelight away from the goal machine or potentially commanding a higher salary.
