Cristiano Ronaldo's renewal: In the bag?

Cristiano Ronaldo is on the brink of renewing his contract with Real Madrid. His current contract runs until 2015 and the deal on the table would see this extended until 2018, according to Spanish media. Even though the Portuguese newspaper 'A Bola' ran a story this past Tuesday that Real Madrid's star player was not planning to renew his contract, which would allow him to move on to another European club for free in 2015, some Spanish newspapers see the situation quite differently, and claim that his contract renewal is basically a done deal.

Over and above a salary increase, Cristiano Ronaldo's contract would also include bonuses tied to certain achievements such as scoring goals, winning titles and winning the Ballon d'Or. Marca newspaper added that negotiations are at an advanced stage and that the main point of conflict is the distribution of income for image rights.


Bernabeu Trophy 2013: Raul comes home

The dream is now a reality. Soon we will see as Raul comes back to the Bernabeu stadium. According to reports in Spanish media, Al-Sadd team of Qatar will definitely be the next guest opponent team for the Bernabeu Trophy. The date will be between 19 and 20 August. On Wednesday 21 is disposed to be day of qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions League and it is not allowed to play other games. The agreement was reached after several days of talks, triggered after the Real Madrid defeat in the Spanihs Cup final that opened some dates of the white pre-season because Madrid will not play the 2013 Spanish Super Cup.

Raul has been instrumental in this agreement, a good new for thousands of Real Madrid fans (some of them have already got their tickets to go to Gelsenkirchen on July 27, the second tribute that will make Schalke). The eternal Real Madrid captain was always informed about this possibility and asked the leaders in the Qatari team (still has one year left on his contract with them) for playing in the Bernabeu stadium.

Chase for Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract renovation not only has Real Madrid on high alert but also several of the world’s richest clubs. Manchester United, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are dreaming of landing the Portuguese forward when his contract comes to an end in June 2015. Particularly keen are Dimitry Rybolovlev’s Monaco, who see Cristiano Ronaldo as the ideal addition to a squad which already features Radamel Falcao, Moutinho, James Rodriguez and Carvalho.

All four clubs are prepared to offer the player a signing on fee of 60 million euros together with an annual salary of 23 million euros and allowing him complete control of his own image rights (at the moment, Real Madrid retains 40%). That would make Cristiano the world’s best paid player which Florentino has also promised to do by offering him a contract extension although with a far inferior proposal: 15 million euros net per season (five million more than he earns at the moment) plus performance-related bonuses. Real Madrid President never tires of stating that the big danger facing football today is the money being bandied around by sheikhs and multimillionaire Russians and it is precisely these rivals who the president is up against in his bid to keep Cristiano at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium.

The Portuguese ace resents the fact that during his four years at the capital club, he has not been approached once above renewed terms while Barcelona have boosted Messi’s pay packet six times. Right now, Cristiano Ronaldo is in no rush to reach an agreement. But he feels aggrieved that the issue has been left to this late stage and worse, that Real Madrid’s priority seemed to be securing the transfer of Neymar, an operation which Florentino told Spansih media would cost in the region of 150 million euros.


Xabi Alonso will fulfil his contract

Real Madrid fans have a few things on their minds at the moment: the necessary and much-desired extension of Cristiano Ronaldo’s deal at Real Madrid, the appointment of a new coach and the signing of Gareth Bale. However, one concern has been dealt with: some Spanish media have learnt that Xabi Alonso has decided to fulfil his current contract at Madrid (which runs out on 30 June 2014) and is prepared to sit down with the club to negotiate a renewal, thought likely to run until 2016.

In recent months, the Basque player has been dogged by a pelvic injury which has reduced his usual on-field influence. In February, he had a meeting with coach Jose Mourinho and since then has undergone a recovery process that has allowed him to play only in the key Champions League matches, the odd Spanish League encounter and the Spanish Cup final. This permitted him to feature against Borussia Dortmund in the semi-final of Europe’s top club competition, as well as against Atletico Madrid. But he was a shadow of the splendid Xabi Alonso who was the fulcrum of a side that won the Spanish League with two records; 121 goals and 100 points.


Florentino Perez: Re-elected Real Madrid President

You have my word that we are going to strive to achieve those greater heights. Our members deserve our utmost efforts and total commitment from everyone at the club.

Real Madrid is angry with Gonzalo Higuain

"I go. I want a change of scenery" were the Higuain's statements just after beating Osasuna in the final match of the season of Real Madrid. Argentinian's statements ran like wildfire and reached the office area of the Santiago Bernabeu stadium. It was like a shot. 'Pipita' made public his desire to leave the white team something that was an open secret, but the club has not liked anything. "It is the wrong strategy. He is a player with contract so we expect the father of the player or his agent give us an explanation," some said from the club.

In Real Madrid, some people understand that Higuain has tried to force the situation, speed up negotiations to resolve his future as soon as possible. But the club has decided that is not going to give him away. Real Madrid would have preferred to take the situation more discretion but Higuain has set himself on the market and white club believes that he has done wrong. The truth is that Higuain is experiencing difficult times. Against Osasuna, in his last game for Madrid, did not celebrate the goal he scored, like a week before against Real Sociedad. Gonzalo Higuain has not had the desired farewell what he deserved after seven years in the white team.
