Real to sell Ronaldo for £160m?
Madrid, Sep 16: Real Madrid are willing to sell Cristiano Ronaldo for a whopping £160 million (€200 million) if they fail to resolve his 'unhappy' situation at the club.

Ronaldo refused to celebrate his two goals against Granada which Real went on to win 3-0 and claimed to be unhappy prior to the match.

However, Real are not willing to sell their star man who has scored 150 goals in three season's after joining from Manchester United in a world record transfer fee worth £80 million.

Ronaldo was also quick to deny rumours that his current situation had anything to do with money. The 27-year old Portuguese earns €10m annually on his current contract, little lower than some of the top players like Samuel Eto'o (€20m) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (€14.5m).

But in case the club renew his current contract, Los Blancos would have to pay 52 percent tax on the players wages compared to current 24%.

Meanwhile, there are several clubs willing to sign the former World Player of the Year. Reports suggest that cash-rich French club Paris Saint-Germain and Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala are ready to pay Ronaldo €20m annually.

The La Liga champions have had their worse start since 10 years after losing two games in four league matches.

Surprisingly, Ronaldo has a release clause of £800m but Real are ready to sell him for only a fifth of that price if they can't resolve the situation.
