Leading Spanish Press outlets answer should Ronaldo ‘stay’ or ‘leave’

Ronaldo’s transfer saga is one of the most talked about rumors in the current transfer window. The Portuguese has reportedly grown unhappy because of the false promises made by Florentino Perez and he wants to take another challenge in his career. While a majority of Madrid fans beg Cristiano to stay at Real Madrid, the Press divides the opinion.

Here’s what leading Spanish Outlets think about Ronaldo’s transfer

Manolo Lama (Cope):

NO! You can’t sell a player that has scored 451 goals in 9 years at the rate of 50 goals per year. It means you are either crazy or you are against him.


Raul Varela (Radio Marca):

YES! Real Madrid needs to look towards the new order of football and stop being Cristiano’s Madrid.

Juanma Rodriguez (Libertad Digital):

MAY BE! Madrid should only let him leave, if he wants to leave. The club should facilitate him for the sake of enormous services rendered.

J. Pederol (La Sexta/El Chiringuito):

YES! If Ronaldo wants to leave, the club should make it easier for him. I want him to continue, but the players come and go, club remains.

Jaime Rodriguez (El Mundo):

YES! If Cristiano insists on leaving, the Club should accept a good offer for him. Someday he has to leave.

Eleonora Giovio (El Pais):

YES! If Cristiano isn’t happy, it does not make sense for him to stay. He has wanted to leave for a couple of years now and his words killed the Champions League party in Kiev.

Anton Meana (SER):

NO! To sell Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid need to find a replacement of the same level.


Manuel Bruna (Mundo Deportivo):

YES! Real Madrid should not be at the mercy of any player no matter how good Cristiano is. He is 33 and it’s a gift to sell him at 100 million Euros.

Jose Luiz Sanchez (La Sexta):

YES! If Cristiano really wants to leave, Madrid should let him leave as a legend and give him a great farewell. They should sell him for at least 150 million Euros to compensate the huge loss.


Diego M. Fernandez (Cuatro):

YES! If the salary offer doesn’t convince Ronaldo, I think it’s the best time to sell him.

Fernando Burgos (Onda Cero):

YES! The clash of two personalities like Perez and Ronaldo with so much power and ego makes co-existence impossible. It’s better to separate.
