Real Madrid have denied reports that the club has lowered Cristiano Ronaldo’s €1billion release clause to just €120million to allow the superstar to leave the Spanish giants.
OK Diario reported that the Portuguese star’s clause had been reduced from €1 billion to €120 million, which would open the door to a summer exit.
Marca confirmed that the European champions will insist on the full release clause, before the 33-year-old is allowed to leave the Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid have rejected any idea of such a reduction, stating that there has been no shift in the forward’s situation.
Ronaldo raised many eyebrows after the Champions League final win against Liverpool, when he declared – “It was great to play for Real Madrid.”
The Portuguese star’s future has come under growing scrutiny in recent times due to his high-profile tax case, the club’s pursuit of Neymar and his wages in comparison to other global stars.
