He reportedly isn't happy with being paid significantly less than fellow stars Lionel Messi and Neymar, with the latter rumored to be of interest to Real Madrid.

The long-serving Madrid full-back told reporters while readying himself for World Cup duty alongside Neymar: "Cristiano doesn't own Real Madrid so if the president wants to sign somebody he will do it".

After talking about his stint as a Real player in past tense, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor gave ambiguous answers when he was asked to clarify his post-match comments later in the day.

Recall that Ronaldo hinted after Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Liverpool in the Champions League final that this could be his final season in the Spanish capital.

Manchester United's Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho recently said that having Ronaldo in the squad gives Portugal an edge at the World Cup.

Neymar met new PSG manager Thomas Tuchel last month, and the German said: "I met a very friendly, very open guy for the first time".

In football, cash is king, and while the World Cup is a welcome break for most of us from the ludicrous transfer fees and ever rising price of replica shirts, there's still an terrible lot of money involved.

The 26-year-old is perhaps the only player available to Real Madrid who would be capable of taking the limelight away from the goal machine or potentially commanding a higher salary.
