Cristiano Ronaldo is waiting a response from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez on a new and improved contract, according to AS English.
A summer of discontent for Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu was quite surprising with numerous reports claiming the former Manchester United forward wanted to return to Old Trafford.
Talk of a unhappy Ronaldo surfaced with reports saying he had felt hurt and let down by the Spanish club after court proceedings began against him over unpaid taxes.
Rumours swept across Spain and England, but in truth they were silenced by Neymar’s sensational move from Barcelona to Paris Saint Germain.
Now, months past the summer break and with the season in full flow – those reports seem to be surfacing once more.
Ronaldo, who has only featured in two La Liga matches for Madrid so far due to a suspension; is yet to hear back from Florentino Perez over a new and improved contract – which the Portuguese international is said to be demanding due to the wealthy wages of Neymar at PSG and Lionel Messi’s upcoming new deal with Barca.
Madrid’s form this season has been less than inspiring with Zinedine Zidane’s side failing to win at home and sitting sixth in the league.
Ronaldo, who has been the main protagonist at the club over recent seasons now finds himself amongst a wealth of young talent, with both Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio improving on a weekly basis.
Whilst a new deal remains likely; expect English and Spanish media to reignite those rumours of a return back to Man United.
