From ESPN - November 15, 2017

Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid next summer, according to fresh reports in Spain, though club captain Sergio Ramos has declined to comment on the speculation.

Ronaldo, 32, is reportedly fed up with how he is being treated at Madrid and, according to El Chiringuito de Jugones, he has asked the club hierarchy to facilitate his exit at the end of the season -- a request which was refused.

AS added that Ronaldo, who is under contract until 2021, and his camp are unhappy that he is no longer the best-paid footballer in the world and that they see Madrid's interest in attackers such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar as evidence replacements are already being lined up.

Speaking after he had scored two penalties in Spain's 3-3 friendly draw in Russia on Tuesday, Madrid skipper Ramos appeared frustrated with the renewed Ronaldo speculation, saying: "Ask him [Ronaldo], I lose track of these things."

Sources at Ronaldo's agents, Gestifute, told ESPN FC in the summer that he wanted to leave Spain after it emerged he was being called to court to answer charges of a 14.7 million tax fraud, in a case that remains ongoing.
