Although the 33 year-old gave little away in terms of explicitly seeking a move away, he spoke of his time at Real in the past tense, telling reporters that “it was very nice to be in Madrid”.
According to El Confidencial, Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has put forward terms over a new contract worth £70m-a-year before tax.
The five time Ballon d’Or winner is currently believed to earn £350,000 per week, Neymar pocketing £619,000 per week at PSG and Messi on £673,000 per week at Barcelona.

The report states that the former Manchester United attacker wants a higher salary which reflects the current football landscape, given that has won Ballon d’Or titles 5 times.
In addition, the report claims that Ronaldo faces having to pay up to £17m to the Spanish treasuty because of tax fraud, and wants more protection from his club as well as financial aid to cover the cost.
