A report in Spain has it that Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract renewal with Real Madrid is in fact almost already a ‘done deal’.
Reports in recent weeks have suggested that Madrid are pushing to hand the Portuguese an improved deal at the Santiago Bernabeu, to appease his still believed unhappy mindset.
Whilst most indications are that the 28-year-old is refusing to entertain those negotiations, La Sexta allege that an agreement for a three-year extension through to June 2018 has already been reached.
An unspecified salary increase is believed included in new terms agreed, as well as bonuses for scoring goals, winning titles and winning the Ballon d’Or.
