An Angry Ronaldo Refuses to Renew Contract With Real Madrid

Five-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo fuelled talk of an exit from Real following their third consecutive Champions League triumph in Kiev against Liverpool.

During a recent friendly against Belgium the 23-year-old stepped up to take Ronaldo's spot alongside Guedes when the Real Madrid forward was left out of the squad.

Salah, 25, netted 44 goals in all competitions under Jurgen Klopp, with Real Madrid and Barcelona tracking the former Chelsea ace.

When asked if he will leave Liverpool, Salah told Egyptian TV channel ON ENT: "All that I can say is that I'm happy to be here and I've adapted to the prevailing atmosphere".

But while Ronaldo is ready to lead his country against Spain in their first World Cup match on Friday, Salah faces a race against time to be fit for Egypt's opener against Uruguay on the same day.

With a fifth Champions League crown secured, Ronaldo has set his sights on leading Portugal to more silverware in what will be his fourth World Cup.

"I hope his injury in the final in Kiev doesn't keep him out".

The Spanish giants also feel uncomfortable with the ongoing situation with their star player, which is why the club have reached out in search of an agreement to solve all the issues between both parties.

If that is the case, the talisman is not showing it while on global duty with Portugal at the World Cup.

The victor will be in pole position to come out on top in a Group B that also includes Morocco and Iran.
