Man Utd, PSG and the clubs who could sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid Featured

The Portugal captain is said to want a summer move away from the Santiago Bernabeu, but who could realistically afford him?

'WHAT?!' coupled with various expletives undoubtedly rung out across Madrid and among Real's fanbase on Friday as rumours began to emerge that Cristiano Ronaldo is looking for a way out of the club.
Reports in Portugal suggest los Blancos' all-time top scorer has become infuriated with the treatment he has received from the Spanish tax authorities regarding alleged fraud (amounting to €14.7 million) relating to image rights, and has made an 'irreversible' decision to leave the capital.
Complicating any potential move is Ronaldo's astronomical buyout clause, which sits at a massive €1 billion. For perspective, the Portuguese's clause is almost 10 times as much as that of Paul Pogba's – and the latter is currently the most expensive player in the world.
If Ronaldo plays hardball and pushes his way out of the club, however, Madrid could be forced to sell him for significantly less. Here, Goal breaks down some of the world's biggest clubs and their chances of being able to sign one of the world's greatest footballers.

    La Liga, Estadio La Rosaleda - Malaga 0 Real Madrid 2 (Ronaldo 2', Benzema 55')

    Real Madrid clinched their first La Liga title since 2012 with a comfortable 2-0 win over Malaga, with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema getting them across the line.

    Zinedine Zidane’s side came into the title decider knowing a point would be enough, with Barcelona up against Eibar at Camp Nou, and it took the visitors to La Rosaleda just two minutes to find the opener, with Ronaldo racing through to round Carlos Kameni and finish into the empty net.

    News filtered through that Barca were trailing to Eibar, but it had little effect on Real’s resolve, despite Malaga taking a stronger grip of the contest as the first half progressed. Barcelona eventually turned around their game to win 4-2, but it was irrelevant in the end as Benzema doubled his side’s lead 10 minutes into the second half.
    The visitors never really looked like faltering at the final obstacle, despite the best efforts of former Barcelona player Sandro Ramirez, who was a thorn in Real’s side throughout. Now Zidane and his players will prepare for the Champions League final, where they can complete a historic double.

    TALKING POINT - Will this herald an age of Madridista dominance in Spain?

    It’s quite remarkable that before this season Real Madrid had gone five years without winning La Liga. For so long they have found themselves second best to their great rivals, Barcelona, but now everything seems to be in their favour. Will this title win herald a new age in Spain? Is this about to be Real Madrid’s era?

    MAN OF THE MATCH - (Real Madrid)

    “Isco’s title,” a recent headline on the front page of AS exclaimed, illustrating just how important the playmaker has been to Real Madrid in recent weeks. His future at the Santiago Bernabeu was in question not so long ago, but this performance underlined his quality. Isco has become the embodiment of Zidane’s Real Madrid. He’ll certainly be sticking around after the summer.


    Malaga - Kameni 8, Torres 6, Hernandez 7, Mikel 6, Ricca 5, Camacho 7, Keko 6, Recio 5, Fornals 6, Jony 5, Sandro 7. Subs - Duda 5, Castro 6, Charles 5.

    Real Madrid - Navas 8, Danilo 6, Ramos 5, Varane 6, Marcelo 7, Casemiro 5, Kroos 7, Modric 6, Isco 8, Ronaldo 8, Benzema 7. Subs - Morata 5, James 5, Kovacic 5.

    2’ GOAL! Malaga 0-1 Real Madrid: What a start for Real Madrid! They have the lead after just a couple of minutes! Ronaldo was released in behind by Isco, rounds Kameni in the Malaga goal and finishes into the empty net.

    21’ WHAT A SAVE! Sandro struck an exceptional freekick from about 25 yards towards goal, but Navas was equal to it, throwing himself across goal to make the save to deny Malaga from finding an equaliser.

    33’ BRILLIANT SAVE! How did that stay out? Benzema's low cross found Ronaldo, who cut inside and hit a left footed strike towards goal, but Kameni pulled off an astounding stop to deny him.

    55’ GOAL! Malaga 0-2 Real Madrid: There's the second goal and that could be the biggest goal of the season! Kameni made the save to deny Ramos' initial attempt, but Benzema was on hand to finish from close range.

    90’ OFF THE CROSSBAR! Castro found space inside the Real Madrid penalty area, but Navas made the save to touch the strike on to the crossbar. Inches away from a Malaga goal!

    Real Madrid won their first La Liga title since the 2011/12 season.
    Cristiano Ronaldo became the second player to score 25 or more goals in eight La Liga seasons in a row, after Lionel Messi.
    Real Madrid have scored in all of their games in a La Liga season for the first time ever.
