Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo suffering worst stats in 12 years

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo suffering worst stats in 12 years

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is again agitating for a return to Manchester United amid reports in Spain he has suffered a "total divorce" with club president Florentino Perez. Ronaldo, victor of five Ballon D'Or awards, reportedly wants to be paid like one of the best players in the world and is seeking a pay rise.

And Real Madrid, AC Milan and PSG are named as the teams he dreams of playing for the most.

United have been led down the garden path in the past by Ronaldo's representatives.

Inter are closing on their second signing of the January transfer window after advancing in talks with Barcelona over midfielder Rafinha, sources tell Goal .

Reportedly Ronaldo is convinced that Perez does not want him at Real Madrid.

The report claims Ronaldo has made it clear to club officials that he wants to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, but will not accept a move to a perceived "smaller league" such as China or MLS.

They wouldn't have been expecting it last May, but this is make or break time for Real Madrid.

This stance seems logical.

Meanwhile, a move outside Europe would call an end to Ronaldo's time at the top level-something he'll be eager to delay as long as possible, particularly after winning back-to-back Ballons d'Or-and money would also be an issue, given the Chinese Super League now imposes a 100 per cent levy on foreign transfers.

That's according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague. However, Real would love to see a fight between Paris Saint-Germain and Man United, but the situation is more complicated than simply being interested in the player.

As such, very few sides will want to bid for the Portuguese, who will soon turn 33 years old. Ronaldo is also enduring a hard season by his own lofty standards.

Ronaldo has, however, managed nine goals in just six Champions League games this season, becoming the first player to score in every group stage game.

Real are 16 points behind Barcelona in the league, while Villarreal have moved just one point behind Madrid in the table. If Ronaldo is about to leave Madrid, it's hard to imagine United having no interest in a potential transfer.

Reports in the United Kingdom claim current Arsenal player Theo Walcott is in Liverpool ahead of his medical with Everton.
