Speaking on Monday at Portugal's World Cup team base camp on the outskirts of Moscow, Fernandes said: "I have nothing negative to say about Cristiano, he looks focused and doesn't look at all anxious about his future".

Given everything Ronaldo has achieved in Madrid and what he is still contributing-he notched 44 goals in all competitions last season-it's understandable he wants to feel valued there, and he likely wants parity with Neymar and Barcelona's Lionel Messi, who receive higher wages than him.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth spot in the Premier League table last season after Salah scored 32 goals in his first full campaign in the English top flight.

His sparkling form underpinned the Reds' surge to a surprise Champions League final appearance against Ronaldo's Real Madrid, but the fairytale ended in tears as a shoulder injury forced him out in the early stages of the 3-1 defeat in Kiev.

It's true we play according to our opponents, we study them and we don't just look at Cristiano individually, but at the end of the day we look at the whole group, which is what matters, ' Koke added, who is playing in his second World Cup after having been to Brazil in 2014.

'Mo Salah has been one of the revelations of the year, ' said Ronaldo. "The Egyptian is one of them".

Nacho highlighted his versatility in Spain's friendly win against Tunisia on Saturday by filling in on the left flank, and he now hopes to be handed a starting spot for La Roja's massive showdown with Portugal in five days' time.
