Cristiano Ronaldo is one the best footballers in the world, and many professional clubs who have enough money to acquire him would probably submit a bid to Real Madrid if he was unsettled. However, at the moment, Ronaldo has pledged his allegiance to Real despite their inability to extend his expiring contract, which is up at the end of the 2014-2015 season. Ronaldo spoke to Spanish newspaper AS and said, “I’ve more years to come. The contract renewal isn’t something that I’m worried about now. These things happen naturally and sooner or later they will become clear. This situation doesn’t worry me. Things are going well. I’m happy and it’s not the end of the world.”
It’s typical of star players to demand restructuring of their contract when they have the desire to stay at a specific club or when they just fancy a higher salary. Ronaldo seems satisfied enough to play under his current contract, as he is getting paid a hefty €12 million; he understands that he will get paid top-dollars whether he is playing at Madrid or somewhere else. He’s currently a part of one of the premier football clubs in the world, so he couldn’t want out for Luis Suarez’s reasons.
If Ronaldo was at a smaller club with less funds than Real, then he could hit the road for a higher salary. Nevertheless, any offer that is given to Ronaldo by one team could at least be matched by Carlo Ancelotti & Co, so it doesn’t appear that the Portuguese superstar could depart for the “right” price.
All signs point to Cristiano Ronaldo’s stay at Real Madrid.
