Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has claimed Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo have solved their off-field problems.
Spanish daily Marca are the first to report the growing problems between Madrid captain Ramos and Ronaldo, who is said to be considering his future at the club.
Both have been vocal in recent weeks over Madrid’s on-field problems, with the latter claiming the club missed the experience of Pepe and the goals of Alvaro Morata, having seen both leave the club over the summer.
Madrid sit eight points behind league leaders Barcelona and many now feel that a change in personnel at the club next summer is to come; with claims that the Ronaldo could leave.
Whilst countering reports claim Ramos and Ronaldo are still at odds, Zidane has looked to appease the situation by saying any issues have now been resolved.
“Sergio is very clever, he can say what he wants and so can Cristiano, they’ve spent so long playing together and have won a lot of things together and it doesn’t mean anything if they disagree on something from time to time,” Zidane told a news conference on Friday.
“These things are sorted out internally and it is already fixed. There’s going to be no problem between Sergio and Cristiano. All I can say is I have two players who form part of the history of this club, they know what is at stake on Saturday and they respect each other a lot.”
Ronaldo, who has scored just one La Liga goal, wants to leave the club according to various reports, following those problems and Madrid’s rumoured links with new players, such as Neymar and Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint Germain.
Diario AS report the claims and have linked Man United with a move, whilst claiming a move to the MLS is also a possibility.
The Portuguese international, 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.
Madrid face Atletico Madrid this weekend at the Wanda Metropolitano.
