Real Madrid super stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos have reportedly handed in transfer requests at Real Madrid in what could pave way for potentially two biggest transfers this summer.
Spanish news outlet Sport have reported that Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos have handed in their transfer requests at Real Madrid, delivering the news in person to Real president Florentino Perez.
Both players have been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United in recent seasons.
The original story, that Ronaldo and Ramos had gone to meet Perez and tell him they wanted to leave, was first brought to light on Spanish TV program El Chiringuito last night.
The incident reportedly happened after Real’s1-0 defeat by neighbours Atletico Madrid last weekend. Real are now 12 points behind leaders Barcelona in third place in La Liga.
Ronaldo played for United between 2003 and 2009 where he won his first Champions league medal and the World Footballer of the Year gong before his then-world record £80m move to Real.
The prolific Portuguese scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Old Trafford side, and won three Premier League titles, three League Cups, one and FA Cup in a trophy-laden spell with the club.
