Zinedine Zidane denies Cristiano Ronaldo wants to quit Real Madrid despite struggles

With four goals in 14 La Liga appearances, it makes no sense for Real Madrid to offer the Portuguese superstar an improved contract - despite everything he's done for the club over the past eight-and-a-half years.

"Ronaldo's message is he wants to leave, and it appears Real Madrid will be willing to let him go".

It might be the right time though, with the player not impressing in La Liga this season with a disappointing 4 goals.

However, recent developments in the Spanish capital suggest that Ronaldo is fed up with some Spanish players in the Real Madrid dressing room, as well as their decline in form hence would request that his buy out clause is reduced to facilitate a move. Hazard is in there too, and it's explained signing the Chelsea player would have the backing of manager Zinedine Zidane, if of course he's still at the club in the summer.

Cristiano Ronaldo is exhausted of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez's procrastination over a new contract and wants out of the Bernabeu, a source close to the player told ESPN FC on Tuesday.

"We know what people are saying, but what Cristiano has to do is think about playing, like he always does. And I just want to talk about this, what he can bring to the team on the pitch, nothing else". He still remains a fan favourite at Old Trafford - and has openly spoke for his love of the club on multiple occasions. As always, in a hard moment he is there.

Aubameyang has now agreed personal terms with Arsenal , with the Dortmund talisman desperate to force through a move this month. Gary Neville says that he can not understand Manchester City's "economics" in their thinking over the Alexis Sanchez situation.

He said: "I can't imagine Real Madrid without Cristiano, this is his club and the one where he needs to be".

"It was sad the way I left as Real was a dream for me but football is like that, where one day you are where you want to be and the next". "He manages what goes on off it".

While the club might be looking to replace Ronaldo soon, they might have to replace Gareth Bale.

But, Zidane does not believe the club would be the same without the Portuguese worldwide.
