Ronaldo can't block Neymar move, says Marcelo

Ronaldo can't block Neymar move, says Marcelo

The Madrid-based publication says Ronaldo's decision is "final" while TeamTalk cite a similar report from Record that claims the 33-year-old is now set for a stunning return to Man Utd with a move "imminent".

Spanish daily AS reports that Ronaldo's agent, Jorge mendes, will meet with the Madrid hierarchy again on Thursday.

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.

"If the president wants to sign someone, the president will sign him". But why can't Neymar come and Cristiano stay?

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.

Bale continues to be a priority, despite the chances of Ronaldo calling time on his long stay in Spain seemingly as high as ever due to CEO Woodward's refusal to get drawn into another pointless saga with the five-time Ballon D'Or victor.

Trump withdraws endorsement of G7 joint statement, slams 'weak' Trudeau
A key question was whether the seven countries could agree on a joint statement of priorities at the conclusion of the meeting. Trump is painting a highly inaccurate tariff picture - wrongly suggesting everyone else has high tariffs while USA has none.

Spanish newspaper Sport ran the headline "Cristiano's blackmail" two days later, claiming he was leveraging the Champions League win to fight for a higher wage packet than Lionel Messi.

"For a sixth year in a row I am the top scorer in the best competition", Ronaldo said.

Their World Cup-winning side of 2002 was loaded with attacking talent and captured the imagination of a global audience.

"Many times, what you want or what you are going to be doesn't depend only on you but on other factors that so many don't realise", he said, per the Express.

"To me, Ronaldo is the world's greatest right now and I have no doubt in my mind that Neymar will be just as good". Whilst previous talk of this type has largely been a move from the star to drive up the vale of his contract at Madrid, this summer, at least, Ronaldo's camp wishes us to believe something different.
