Ronaldo hints at Madrid exit

Ronaldo has given his strongest hint yet that he will leave Real Madrid this summer. Speaking at a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League match against Arsenal, the Brazilian striker said that he had never felt loved by Madrid’s fans.

“The fans have never accepted me and their reaction is something to take into account when thinking about my future,” Ronaldo said.

“I’ve always said that I don’t want to be where I’m not loved. I’ve never felt at home at the Bernabeu, the fans have never treated me with affection.

“I will make a decision at the end of the season. After all the effort I made to come to this club I don’t understand why I’m treated like this.

“I will decide on my future after the World Cup.”

Ronaldo joined Madrid from Internazionale in August 2002 after scoring the winning goals in Brazil’s World Cup Final triumph over Germany in Yokohama.
