Calderon said that Ronaldo is no longer happy with Real Madrid

Ramon Calderon, former president of Real Madrid, said that Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer happy with life at the Santiago Bernabeu, and sports software services were suspecting that the player was not very comfortable with the club anymore.
The player made a move in 2009 from Manchester United to the Spanish side. Since then, the forward was able to win the UEFA Champions League, a La Liga title, and the Copa del Rey two times.
Throughout the last five years, the 29-year-old turned into Real’s lucky charm, leading the club with an amazing scoring record, but Calderon, who brought the Portuguese player to Real, believes that the player became disenchanted with Florentino Perez, the club’s current president.
Angel di Maria and Xabi Alonso – who were very important players for Real – both made moves away from the club during the close-season, and even though the Spanish giants were able to acquire the services of top players when they hired James Rodriguez and Toni Kroos, the team’s former president believes that Ronaldo is not happy at all with the fact that the players left the club.
“My impression is he is fed up with the policy of the current president,” Calderon said.
“When he came [to Real Madrid] with [Arjen] Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team [but then Robben was sold].
“Two years ago it was [Gonzalo] Higuain sold and he didn’t like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let [Mesut] Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel di Maria this summer.”
Sports software services saw that in the last few weeks, there were rumours floating around that the Portuguese player is eager to go back to United, and Calderon revealed that the player always had good things to say about the Premiere League side.
“When I signed him, I remember he said he was grateful to Manchester United,” he said.
“He had a marvellous time there, he likes everything. It is a really great club.”
