Cristiano Ronaldo has potential landing spots narrowed down

"Cristiano doesn't own Real Madrid so if the president wants to sign somebody he will do it".

Marcelo went on to explain whether Neymar could be Ronaldo's successor at the Santiago Bernabeu, "I've yet to understand how the Ballon d'Or works".

There's no such thing as Neymar not being there because Cristiano is there.

The reports from the front page of Diario Record featured the headline "Ronaldo will leave Real - Irreversible decision", in a story which the publication seems to have taken from comments made by Ronaldo directly after the Champions League final.

How could Ronaldo become so desperate to quit Madrid all of a sudden, though?

Manchester United's Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho recently said that having Ronaldo in the squad gives Portugal an edge at the World Cup.

"Many times, what you want or what you are going to be doesn't depend only on you but on other factors that so many don't realise", he said, per the Express.

"I can guarantee great ambition from all the team", Ronaldo said. The newspaper also alleged that the Real Madrid dressing room had turned on him after the antics in Kiev, which soured what should have been a fantastic evening.

"Madrid have also given him a lot in terms of prestige and that has also helped him to win individually".

Likely in reference to stalling contract negotiations with Real, the report says his strained relationship with Perez stems from "broken promises and a lack of support".

Corrigan's source confirms that only France's Ligue 1, the English Premier League and maybe Italy's Serie A are seen as viable destinations.

He may have been expected to side with a former United favourite, given his current ties to Old Trafford, but the England worldwide has chosen to put South American flair at the top of the all-time chart.

Meanwhile, Manchester United completed their first two signings of the summer last week by tying up deals for Diogo Dalot and Fred.

Sources consulted by Goal insist that this is not the final chapter of a transfer saga that looks set to rumble on throughout the summer, while there are still hopes that the striker will eventually opt to stay for at least another term.
