REAL MADRID star Cristiano Ronaldo has threatened to leave the club as their Champions league final with Liverpool edges closer, reports say.
Ronaldo is set to start for Real Madrid when they face Liverpool in the Champions League in Kiev on May 26.
The Portugal international is aiming to fire Los Blancos to the prize for the third consecutive year.
Ronaldo has recently returned to form to spark Real Madrid hopes of yet another golden night.
But Spanish outlet Diario Gol claim he has thrown the La Liga giants into crisis ahead of the final.
It is said he has threatened to leave yet again.
Last summer, talk was rife that Ronaldo was determined to turn his back on the club he signed for in 2009.
Inevitably, speculation arose that Manchester United and PSG were prepared to break the bank for him.
However, both deals look highly unlikely now.
PSG are reportedly angry at Real for their public pursuit of Neymar and may block all negotiations with Zinedine Zidane’s team.
United, meanwhile, are understood to be focusing their efforts on midfielders, rather than attackers, having invested big on Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez over the last year.
Diario Gol say Ronaldo wants Real to grant him pay parity with Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
Messi is currently the world’s highest-paid player, pocketing a huge £500,000 every week.
And Ronaldo wants Real to give him the same – if he shoots them past Liverpool.
