Doubts continue to grow over future of Manchester United target Cristiano Ronaldo

Portuguese just netted the 200th goal of his Madrid career against Malaga.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo’s time at the Santiago Bernabeu could soon be drawing to a close after it emerged that the playmaker has refused to even enter into negotiations with Los Blancos about extending his stay in the Spanish capital, says the Irish Times.

The Portugal international, currently rated as one of Planet Football’s two best players along with FC Barcelona attacker Lionel Messi, has a contract with Madrid that runs until 30 June 2015.

However, as yet the player has not entered into discussions with Madrid about the possibility to signing a new long-term deal to keep him in La Liga beyond that cut-off date.

All of which means that the Spanish champions may have to sell Ronaldo this summer rather than risk losing the mega star for either a greatly reduced sum next year, or even worse, on a free in two years’ time.

Ronaldo has scored a quite staggering 200 goals for Madrid in just 197 matches since signing for the club from Manchester United in 2009 for a world-record transfer fee of £80 million.

And so it will take a similar size bid if any potential suitor wishes to lure the Portuguese away from Real any time soon.
