Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Barcelona after Euro 2016

Real Madrid midfielder Cristiano, the player who captained his side to the UEFA Champions League final in 2017, is considering his future at the Spanish club and has spoken to Arsenal about a possible move.

According to the Catalan newspaper AS, Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has told Ronaldo he is ready to leave Barca for a new challenge, and has been linked with Arsenal.

However, Real and Arsenal are yet to make any official offers to the Spanish midfielder, with the Catalans citing a lack of competition for his signature.

While the Catalan side are keen to retain the 25-year-old, it is not known whether the two clubs are in a rush to sell him.

According in the AS report, the two sides are still working on a deal to finalise, but that it is unlikely to be completed until next summer.

The Barcelona boss, who will take charge at the end of the season, was due to receive a report on his side’s position in the group stages of Euro 2016.

However Real’s sporting director, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has said that it was unlikely to happen in the immediate future.

“The only priority is to try to keep Real Madrid together,” he said.

“We don’t have a clear idea what the future holds for Cristiano.”

Real have been linked to a number of forwards, with Nacho Monreal the latest player to make a move to the Camp Nou.
