Zidane tips Ronaldo to stay

Cristiano Ronaldo is exhausted of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez's procrastination over a new contract and wants out of the Bernabeu, a source close to the player told ESPN FC on Tuesday.

"Cristiano is a part of this club, where he belongs". I only talk to him about what goes on on the pitch.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has a hard decision to make ahead of his side's King's Cup quarter-final away leg against Leganes on Thursday night.

Something needs to happen at Real Madrid given their awful season so far, and Marca report the club are now "casting" for a new forward.

"We know what can be said outside but within, what Cristiano must do is just think about playing as he has been doing, and that's what I want, to talk only about his attitude and what he can bring us".

Various reports in Spanish press have emerged since the 3-0 El Clasico defeat to Barcelona in December, whilst further claims have followed after a dismal 1-0 home defeat to Villarreal on Saturday afternoon.

But as he and his side were put through their paces by manager ahead of the Copa Del Rey quarter-final first-leg against Leganes on Wednesday, the Portuguese ace showed no signs his mind was elsewhere. What's more, the club can not show a lack of interest if it is confirmed that the player is indeed on the market, as the owners have promised to battle for the best players in the world, however at the same time, if they accept that they are interested, they'll unleash a media tsunami, which would soon become uncontrollable. Everyone loves him here.

The Portugal forward has scored nine goals in six Champions League games but only four in 14 in La Liga this season.

Former Spain defender Sanchis spent his entire career with Real Madrid, winning eight Liga titles and two Champions Leagues between 1983 and 2001. "I go day by day and will not change".
