Why is Ronaldo sad?

Ever since the news broke out, that Real Madrid super-star, Cristiano Ronaldo is unhappy at the Spanish capital, speculation is rife that the Portuguese striker is looking to move. Is he merely looking for more money? Or is he unhappy about being snubbed at the recent European award ceremony? TKTG scouts the web to present a number of different viewpoints, some of which I’m sure you’ll find intriguing.

Goal.com reports that the Portuguese international who scored his 150th Real goal during the 3-0 victory over Granada, claimed he is unhappy with a ‘professional issue’.

Whereas, former Real Madrid legend Roberto Carlos says that Ronaldo is sad because he did not win the UEFA best player award.

Dermot Corrigan, however from Soccernet digs a bit deeper and argues that “Ronaldo had received a huge offer from another club, perhaps Manchester City or, with the French and Russian transfer windows still open, big spending Paris St Germain or Anzhi Makhachkala”.

The Guardian on the other hand, takes a lighter view of the entire situation and reports that Ronaldo is sad because Real Madrid won’t give him a pay hike.

    I think its a bit of “all of the above”. Clearly he was a tad narked that iniesta beat him to the award and his subsequent request for further wages because of the impending tax rise that is coming has added to that saddness.

      Yea I agree. But I don’t think he’ll leave Madrid as yet. He’ll probably hang around for another couple years until Mourinho moves on.

      yeah I think the “Beckham Law” will be affecting him. From the Daily Mail ”

      Another problem for Real is the abolition of the so-called ‘Beckham Law’, under which they agreed to pay Ronaldo £8m a year net, with the club meeting his 24 per cent tax obligation. Ronaldo’s current contract still benefits from the ‘Beckham Law’. But any new contract would, from 2015, be subject to a 52 per cent tax.

      Paying Ronaldo his £8m a year has been costing the club just under £10m a season. Now, by giving in to his 30 per cent pay increase demands, his new £10.35m take home pay would see them shelling out more than £20m a season.
