06.07.2017 » Why is Real Madrid unhappy with Ronaldo
There have always been speculations about Cristiano Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid, especially whenever it is time for him to renew his contract. The time for that came last season and the normal speculations continued. But he later came out to debunk it by saying that he intends to retire at the club when he is 40 years. He reiterated how happy he was at the club at that moment and how motivated he was towards achieving whatever he can. He also posited how the white jersey fits him perfectly well. And that wasn't that long ago...
Cristiano Ronaldo - All 400 goals for Real Madrid:
This was before the renewal of the contract and it rightly earned him a contract of €400,000 a week. This, coupled with some other endorsements immediately made him the highest paid sportsman in the entire globe, as his yearly salary went up to €82.5m a year.
This is what Real Madrid will always like, a Ronaldo that will always come out to tell the whole word that he loves Real Madrid, and will remain there forever. But when it became obvious that they cannot bet on him like punters who know how to choose the best casino, they got angry...
Why and what is Real Madrid angry about?
Now, there is no gainsaying that Cristiano Ronaldo is actually not one of the happiest people on earth right now. His travails started when the Spanish tax authorities, who have already convicted Barcelona's superstar Lionel Messi for tax fraud, beamed their searchlight on him. They have accused him of tax evasion, and he will soon go to trial, on July 31. As much as he has said that his conscience is clear over the €14.7 million unpaid taxes he is accused of, he has shown some signs of unhappiness.
During the Confederations Cup, as much as he picked the man of the match in all three games in the group stages, he was not as sharp as he used to be. There are therefore some speculations about his emotional state. Ronaldo failed to help the Portuguese get to the finals of the tournament, as they lost on penalties against Chile. After the game, he was given the go-ahead to return to Spain and not to feature in the third place game against Mexico.
Meanwhile, all through the period of the Confederations Cup, there were huge speculations about Ronaldo being unhappy at the club and the country. It was even reported in many dailies that he has decided to leave. Portuguese newspaper "A Bola", described his decision to leave as irreversible, and the major reason is because of the unjust accusation.
However, while at the Confederations cup and even now that he has gone back to Spain to be with his newborn twins, Ronaldo still has said nothing about those speculations. This is actually where the problem lies...
While he used to be the person to douse the tension himself, he has shown some form of indifference at this one. That does not augur well with the authorities at the club. News coming from Spain is that the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, who has been expecting Ronaldo to debunk the news, is disappointed. He is not happy that Ronaldo has not said anything about it and is actually afraid that the young man may have decided to leave.
