Gareth Bale tells Real Madrid he'll only leave for Premier League club

The widespread rumours about Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid are refusing to die down.

In fact, the world's top three players - Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - are worth more than the nine least valuable teams combined, ING calculated.

Reports also indicate that Ronaldo believes Real Madrid have not supported him well enough with regards to a potential court case surrounding image rights.

Ronaldo became one of the best players in the world during a six-year spell at Old Trafford before sealing a then world-record move to Madrid in the summer of 2009.

Ronaldo spent six years in Manchester between 2003 and 2009 before going Real, winning a raft of trophies including 3 league titles, 2 League Cups, The FA Cup and the Champions League in 2008. But one of the Portuguese star's closest friends Marcelo made sure that there would be no animosity between the pair if Neymar joined Real Madrid.

The Frenchman has since resigned but Bale's future in Madrid is far from certain and Bayern Munich have earmarked him as a replacement for Arjen Robben.

Marcelo went on to explain whether Neymar could be Ronaldo's successor at the Santiago Bernabeu, "I've yet to understand how the Ballon d'Or works". Frustration over stalled contract talks is at the root of things, but the sentiment of deciding his future "in the next few days" has now stretched a couple weeks.

Ordinarily, £131m for a player aged 33 would seem insane, but given Ronaldo's huge marketing value and the fact he's still one of the best players on the planet, it would still be an excellent deal for United if these reports were accurate.

Nasser Al Khelaifi, chairman of PSG, has always wanted to have Ronaldo on his team and now, faced with Portugal's declared intent to seek another destination, the wish of the leader and the state of Qatar could come true.

Similar reports of Ronaldo leaving Real had emerged a year ago as well after the Spanish club beat Juventus 4-1 in the final.
