Cristiano Ronaldo wants out of Real Madrid
Ronaldo has won three Champions Leagues and four Ballon d’Ors while at Real but things are turning sour.
He’s struggled this season, scoring just once in La Liga, and it has emerged he wants to leave the club in the summer.
And Spanish newspaper AS claim there are four reasons for his desire to quit the club: Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, money and tax issues.
Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 and has won it all at the Bernabeu.

Real eventually failed to sign the France youngster and Ronaldo stayed put.
Now however there is talk of a move for Neymar, which Ronaldo is finding similarly disrespectful.

He currently falls well short on Lionel Messi and Neymar on the wages front and believes the offer presented to him is unsuitable.
And finally the tax problems which kick-started his desire to leave last summer have rankled and added to the pressure on his shoulders.
Those four reasons have encouraged him to look for a way out of the club.
