'Let's make it a hattrick!!' – Fans urge Man United to smash transfer record

"We all want Ronaldo to stay and Neymar has our doors wide open", Marcelo said.

Ronaldo became one of the best players in the world during a six-year spell at Old Trafford before sealing a then world-record move to Madrid in the summer of 2009.

Ronaldo, 33, smashed an wonderful 15 goals in 13 Champions League games to lead Madrid to their third straight title, while he also hit 26 La Liga goals in a season that caught fire in 2018 after a hard end to the previous year.

"Cristiano doesn't own Real Madrid so if the president wants to sign somebody he will do it".

In the current 4-2-3-1 setup, the double-pivot stays deep and full-backs do not tend to stretch play, so opposing teams were able to crowd out the four most advanced players.

TeamTalk are citing a report from AS that claims Ronaldo has made a decision to leave Madrid after they refused to meet his salary demands following talks over yet another contract extension.

Meanwhile, Real full-back Marcelo said he is hopeful of Neymar playing for the La Liga club and that that there is place for both the Brazilian striker and Ronaldo at the club.

After talking about his stint as a Real player in past tense, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor gave ambiguous answers when he was asked to clarify his post-match comments later in the day.

Nasser Al Khelaifi, chairman of PSG, has always wanted to have Ronaldo on his team and now, faced with Portugal's declared intent to seek another destination, the wish of the leader and the state of Qatar could come true. He reportedly isn't happy with being paid significantly less than fellow stars Lionel Messi and Neymar, with the latter rumored to be of interest to Real Madrid. "We are not favourites but in football nothing is impossible".

"It was an important meeting".

Firmino did not appreciate Ramos' mocking tone and Marcelo weighed in, telling reporters: "I've known Sergio Ramos for 12 years and it's bad to win three straight Champion Leagues and see people talking that it was so because the goalkeeper was hit, or someone was sent off, or a penalty wasn't given".
