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.
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.
