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.

  • Real Madrid stunned on Cristiano Ronaldo return

    La Liga, Bernabeu – Real Madrid 0 Real Betis 1 (Sanabria 90+4)

    Real Betis claimed a sensational win over Real Madrid, with Antonio Sanabria scoring a stoppage-time winner for the visitors to the Santiago Bernabeu, leaving the Spanish champions seven points adrift of Barcelona at the top of La Liga.

    Zinedine Zidane’s side already had ground to make up before kick-off following draws against Valencia and Levante, but this result puts them even further adrift, with the champions failing to find the breakthrough against a composed Betis outfit.

    Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the Real Madrid line-up after serving a five-game suspension, but not even the Portuguese forward could make the difference, spurning a number of opportunities as he struggled for match sharpness.

    Dani Carvajal and Gareth Bale hit the post as the hosts pressed hard in the second half, but they were thwarted every time, either by the woodwork or the in-form goalkeeper Antonio Adan, who returned to haunt his former side.

    Then deep into stoppage time, Real Madrid found themselves exposed on the break, with Sanabria left unmarked at the back post to power home a header, securing an unlikely win for the visitors to the Santiago Bernabeu.


    Where did Real Madrid’s atrocious start to the league season come from? Who could have seen this coming? Real Madrid thumped Barcelona over two legs in the Spanish Super Cup, also winning the European Super Cup. But Zidane’s side have claimed just two wins from their opening five league games and now find themselves seven points adrift of Barcelona at the top of the table. Even more concerning, Real have failed to win any of their three home games so far. What’s going on?


    Antonio Adan (Real Betis): What a way to haunt your old club. Adan was in sparkling form as he denied Real Madrid at every turn. His best moment came in the save to prevent Bale from finding the net with a clever backheel flick, tipping the ball on to the far post. It wasn’t just in the saves, though, that Adan contributed to Real Betis’ win. He was commanding in every way possible. He was the leader of their firm defence.


    Real Madrid: Navas 5, Carvajal 4, Ramos 5, Varane 5, Marcelo 5, Casemiro 7, Kroos 6, Isco 5, Modric 7, Bale 7, Ronaldo 5. Subs: Asensio 5, Vazquez 5, Mayoral 6.

    Real Betis: Adan 9, Durmisi 5, Feddal 7, Mandi 6, Barragan 8, Fabian 7, Javi 5, Camarasa 6, Tello 6, Sanabria 8, Francis 7. Subs: Guardado 5, Boubedouz 5, Joaquin 5.
