By all accounts, Real Madrid are supposed to be planning for a future without Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese is now 32-years-old and although he has still scored 22 goals this season, he has also put in a few disappointing performances over the course of the campaign.
While there’s no immediate suggestion of him leaving the Bernabeu, Los Blancos are right to be keeping one eye on long-term replacements.
As such, the club are being linked with several attacking targets.
However, according to Diario Gol, some of them have not gone down well with CR7.
The Spanish publication claim that bizarrely, Ronaldo has a lot of say in president Florentino Perez and manager Zinedine Zidane’s transfer policy.
It will come as no surprise that he doesn’t want any new signings to rival his ego, so he has essentially vetoed a move for Chelsea’s Eden Hazard. Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann is also thought to be a no-go.
Ronaldo has even gone so far as to threaten to leave Madrid if those players arrive.
It seems ridiculous that Real are being held to ransom by one of their own players, but on a more positive note, he has also told them he is happy for them to sign any of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Kylian Mbappe, or Paulo Dybala.
