Madrid - Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has hinted that Cristiano Ronaldo could follow Jose Mourinho through the exit door and possibly land up at Chelsea.

TalkSPORT reports that Calderon told the Keys and Gray show: "Cristiano Ronaldo said he was sad at the beginning of the season. I think the relationship with the current president is not a good one, maybe because the president doesn’t like the players he inherited.

"He did the same with Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder. It was unbelievable that when he came he decided to give them away. Then, the next season, they were playing in the Champions League, in the Bernabeu, against Real Madrid for their respective new clubs.

"Ronaldo wanted to breach his contract. The truth is he didn’t want to extend his contract and it’s only got two years left [to run]. In the last few years it’s a rule that you have to extend the contract or sell. If not, then the player is worth nothing.

"There are not many teams that could afford to pay him what he deserves and who can pay Real Madrid what they are asking for. There are three clubs - Manchester City, PSG and Chelsea. I don’t think any other club is going to pay that amount of money for a player.

"They [Real] are going to negotiate the contract now and they will make a decision. It’s something we will know in a few weeks.

"The president doesn’t need to keep Cristiano Ronaldo to be re-elected because no-one else is in the running.

"In a different world he would have agreed a deal [privately] to let him leave next summer, then said to the fans that he [Ronaldo] was going to extend his contract. Then they would have an agreement to leave the club when someone has the money."
