Pay me as high as Messi or I leave, Ronaldo tells Madrid’s bosses

Real Madrid’s Portuguese superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, has reportedly told his bosses at the Santiago Bernabeu to pay him as much as what  his arch-rival, Lionel Messi, earns at Barcelona.

He threatened to leave if he was not paid as much.

According to reports from Europe, the 32-year-old talisman demanded a whopping £17m pay rise that will increase his earnings at the La Liga and UEFA Champions League reigning champions to £35.5m.

Reports claimed Ronaldo is frustrated by Real president, Florentino Perez’ refusal to offer him an improved contract after he was promised one when he helped Real to a La Liga and Champions League double last season.

Ronaldo signed a five-year deal in November 2016 that will see him stay at the club till 2021.

He has also been linked with a return to Manchester United.
