An Angry Ronaldo Refuses to Renew Contract With Real Madrid

Ronaldo'doesn't look worried about his future

Recent talks between Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes and Real's top-brass haven't helped bring an agreement and the talisman's decision is "irreversible" unlike a year ago, Diario Record, a Portugal daily, has claimed.

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.

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".

The 33-year-old ended up staying at Real - leading them to a third straight Champions League title.

If that is the case, the talisman is not showing it while on worldwide duty with Portugal at the World Cup.

"Many people talk about the Cristiano Ronaldo-Messi battle [for the Ballon d'or] but there are other players who have chances to enter the race". Salah fans in Grozny, Russia, made big banners for their star player as he visited a stadium in the city amidst much fanfare, as they chanted Egyptian's name.

"A defeat on the first day puts you in a bad way for the rest of the tournament so it's important to start well", he said.

The midfielder did not hide the Spanish team's desire to reach the match against Portugal and not settle for a draw against the team led by Cristiano.

"To win the World Cup would be a dream for Portugal but to do it we have to play the same way we did in Euro 2016, as a team and all together".
