Fonte defends Ronaldo despite off day against Iran

Real Madrid have allegedly cut Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo's release clause from €1bn (£873m) to €120m (£105m).

The 33-year-old forward Ronaldo, who is currently ready to battle to Uruguay in the round of 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup at Fisht Stadium on Saturday night but the five-time Ballon d'Or winner have reportedly hint with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu this summer after starring in their 3-1 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League final.

According to OK Diario, the clause cannot be triggered by Spanish teams and also includes small print excluding French giants Paris Saint-Germain too.

The report claims that four clubs have made firm offers for Ronaldo - Manchester City, AC Milan, Arsenal and Chelsea, although his former employers Manchester United have been tipped as the frontrunners to land him.

Ronaldo is expected to confirm where he will be playing his club football next season after the World Cup in Russia.
