Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly suspicious of Real Madrid's pursuit of Neymar and is bothered by the fact the club appear willing to splash €350 million (£306 million) on the Paris Saint-Germain star.

On that day he spoke about his time at Real Madrid in the past tense, as if he was living out his final days at the club. With Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale publicly putting their futures at the club in doubt, the club is bound to engage in notable transfers, both, incoming and outgoing.

Ronaldo, Portugal's most capped player and record scorer, missed the first week of training and the friendlies against Tunisia and Belgium after playing for Real Madrid in the Champions League final against Liverpool at the end of last month.

Spanish daily AS reports that Ronaldo's agent, Jorge mendes, will meet with the Madrid hierarchy again on Thursday.

It claims that one of Ronaldo's key reasons for wanting to leave the reigning Champions League holders' is because he's unhappy that Madrid's president, Florentino Perez has not offered him a new contract.

Sessions recused himself from the investigation, citing his role as a Trump campaign surrogate and adviser. The president suggested in a Tuesday morning tweet that the investigation was tainted by politics.

Expect these rumours to gather a lot more steam as time in the open transfer window progresses.

Roncero explained that Real now pay Ronaldo €21 million (£18 million) per year, while Neymar earns €37 million (£32 million) per season at PSG.

Ronaldo leaving would be a disaster for Real Madrid.

Rodrygo, aged just 17, has had a promising season with Santos and is widely hailed as a future superstar.
