Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has turned down a new contract at the club after deciding to leave next summer, according to reports.
According to Spanish media, the FIFA World Player of the year has rejected a new contract at Real Madrid and told President Florentino Perez he wants to leave on June 30.
The 32-year-old is Madrid's all-time leading goalscorer, having netted 414 goals in just 407 appearances for the club since arriving from Manchester United for £80m in 2009.
The four-time Ballon d'Or winner's request to depart was rejected by Real president Florentino Perez, only worsening their relationship.
Didier Drogba announces the date of his retirement
Speaking to RMC Sport about his future, Drogba said,"Ah, do you want a scoop? I think next year will be my last season", he said. Now a co-owner at Phoenix Rising, Drogba's "other projects" are thought to refer to him producing another MLS franchise.
Ronaldo posted a photo Sunday on Twitter of him with the baby's mother, Georgina Rodriguez, and his oldest son in a hospital in Madrid.
Aguirre insists Ronaldo is a "Madridista", and loves the fans, but has his heart set on a move away after falling out with the club's hierarchy.
They claim Ronaldo was not pleased by a contract renewal offer he received from the club, believing that he is not valued highly enough by the European champions. I don't want to renew. "We are all very happy!"
