Cristiano Ronaldo may have moved closer to exiting Real Madrid after report of a lowered release clause emerged in Spain. The five time Balon d’or winner is currently focused on his duty for the national side in Russia, but that, apparently, has not stopped a major alteration to his contract at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo Release Clause reportedly moved dramatically down from One Billion Euros to One Hundred and Twenty Million Euros,
Ronaldo is contracted to the Champions League winners until 2021 and his buyout clause is set at €1billion, but OK Diario now claim his release clause has been significantly lowered to €120m.
If true that would open the door for numerous clubs to make a move for him.
The former Man Utd star has been heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu since the Champions League final and Zinedine Zidane’s deaparture from the club.
