Marcelo: Ronaldo Isn't The Boss At Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo didn't appear in Real's new kit promo after speculation about his future at the club.

While his form in the first half of the campaign was often disappointing, Ronaldo still finished last season with 44 goals to his name, including 15 in the UEFA Champions League as Real won it for the third year running.

Cristiano Jr can be seen playing with the ball in the penalty box, taking shots at the open goal.

"Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't own Real Madrid", he said at a press conference while in camp with Brazil, according to Sportskeeda.

Neymar became the most expensive player in history last summer when he moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in a deal worth nearly £200m.

Ronaldo's contract at the Bernabeu commits him to the reigning European champions until June 2021.

Livingston, McGee giving Warriors big lift in finals vs Cavs
But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. And it was great because the victory put the Warriors up 3-0 and on the cusp of their second straight title.


Not bad for a seven-year-old - he must have a pretty good coach... "If the president wants to sign someone, the president will sign him".

This story comes on the back of claims from Spanish TV football programme El Chiringuito, which state that Jorge Mendes, Ronaldo's agent, was left dissatisfied after recent showdown talks with the Madrid hierarchy.

Ronaldo remained silent about his future but did speak about his team's chances at the tournament in Russian Federation at Belem Palace in Lisbon on Wednesday where he and his teammates gathered and had an audience with the country's president, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

The Euro 2016 champions will compete in Group B along with Spain, Morocco, and Iran.

"I've never understood the Ballon d'Or criteria", he said. All in all, I think this is a game that Portugal won't take lightly, so I'll take the Portuguese to notch a win by a couple of goals here. "It's a privilege to represent our nation and let's see what awaits us".
