Florentino Perez is rumoured to be 'fed up' with Cristiano Ronaldo, citing his frequent visits to Morocco to visit his friend and his lack of effort in training as well as undermining Real Madrid managers by ignoring their tactics. Ronaldo has been linked to a move away after a somewhat tumultuous spell at the club and the big clubs in England are consistently linked with the former Ballon d'Or holder, especially his old club Man United.
Real Madrid however, have just been handed a lengthy ban from transfer activity and if upheld, the Spanish giants will not be able to replace one of their galacticos, so Perez is highly unlikely to sanction a sale.
There are some who doubt that the ban will have any influence and Arsene Wenger is convinced that the ban will be lifted. Barcelona were hit with a similar sanction last season but still negotiated and all but signed a host of new players, culminating in a record batch registration of 77 new players earlier this month.
There are those in the football world that doubt whether any governing body, be it football or otherwise would dare cross either of the Spanish giants, both of whom boast absurd amounts of debt from their Fantasy Football type dealings in recent years.
