Cristiano Ronaldo needs time 'to reflect' on Real Madrid future

Rio Ferdinand ESPNRio Ferdinand dreams of Man Utd re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid
Elias Hubbard | 27 June, 2017, 11:22

Christian Karembau believes Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave the club, despite talks that he wants to leave.

Even if United are interested in signing the Portuguese, though, he may sign a new and improved contract at Real Madrid this summer if they "sort out" his tax situation with the Spanish authorities. I believe that on the pitch we always need Karim, Cristiano, Bale - all of them - because they have won things together, although "Zizou" has the final call. His release clause is €1 billion and no club will be able to pay that. "We will see how it pans out over the next few weeks and months".

"He broke all the records", the former France worldwide said.

In 26 La Liga appearances, Alvaro Morata scored 15 goals for Real Madrid. "What he wants to do is to work, to play, and to reach the World Cup in the best shape possible". Averaging a goal every 94 minutes, his conversion rate was also better than any of United's attacking players - including top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Karembeu, a World Cup victor and European champion with France, spent three seasons at Real and won the Champions League on two occasions - in 1998 and 2000.

Manchester United have agreed personal terms with James Rodriguez ahead of his proposed transfer to Old Trafford from Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

The playmaking Englishman is now 35 years old and despite his age has extended his stay at Old Trafford for another season.
