Cristiano Ronaldo to start Portugal friendly vs Algeria confirms Fernando Santos

Cristiano Ronaldo to start Portugal friendly vs Algeria confirms Fernando Santos

The president of Real Murcia says he was set to hire Guti as manager of the third-division club before Zinedine Zidane resigned, paving the way for the former Madrid midfielder to replace him.

Real Madrid's European commitments meant Ronaldo missed Portugal's last two friendlies, but his return proved timely as they get ready to open their World Cup Group B campaign against Spain on Friday, June 15.

Ronaldo is believed to be frustrated that Lionel Messi and Neymar are earning more than him at Barcelona and Paris-Saint Germain, with Real wary to shell out blockbuster wages for a 33-year-old.

TeamTalk are citing a report from AS that claims Ronaldo has chose to leave Madrid after they refused to meet his salary demands following talks over yet another contract extension.

Ronaldo himself has not spoken publicly about the situation since those comments in Kiev, apart from the following day's "see you next year" message to fans celebrating the Champions League success back in Madrid.

Portugal made a lively start and Cristiano Ronaldo, playing in his first match since the Champions League final on May 26, had a goal disallowed after he was caught fractionally offside.

Meanwhile, United continue to be linked with a move for his Madrid teammate Gareth Bale. Although sources in his camp have since told ESPN FC that agreeing an improved new contract to stay at the club remains another possible resolution of the situation.

Ronaldo reportedly fears the Brazilian is being signed as his replacement.

United fans would love to see the five-time Ballon d'Or victor back at Old Trafford but it seems the club are completely focused on Jose Mourinho's vision for a squad overhaul. The signings of Fred and Diogo Dalot could go some way to solving those respective problems and Pogba could thrive in a more expansive system; but of course so could Ronaldo. We don't know, but we're already looking forward to next summer's edition.
