Cristiano Ronaldo Reportedly Baffled by Real Madrid's 'Obsession' with Neymar

Cristiano Ronaldo

The Portuguese has become one of the biggest stars in world football since moving to Real from Manchester United in 2009.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo joined Portugal's camp in Cascais on Monday afternoon, 11 days before his country's World Cup opener against Spain.

After a long campaign with Real Madrid that included a third straight Champions League title, Ronaldo is on holiday ahead of Russian Federation 2018.

Her last sighting was on May 10, when she joined Trump at Andrews Air Force Base in welcoming home hostages from North Korea . But first ladies are not elected and technically are still private citizens, and each one gets to tailor the job to suit her.

"It feels like the right moment for someone to take their chance at this World Cup", said Coutinho.

Messi and Ronaldo have been regarded as the two premier players in the sport in recent years but Salah had an incredible season at Anfield and Neymar adjusted to life at Paris Saint-Germain in similar fashion. But I've got no doubt Salah can build on it and do it over that period of time.

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the few players in the current Real Madrid squad who is eyeing the club's willingness to sign Neymar Jr with suspicion and, based on the financial implications involved, some disbelief.

Tite said Neymar must be "a protagonist" for his country but added that the others players must also step up. Brazil have Neymar on the bench and he is expected to come on at half time.

Meanwhile, the forward will miss Portugal's warm-up game against Belgium, as they prepare for the upcoming tournament. The world's best player, Lionel Messi, has dropped down to fourth in this list given he is nearing 30 but he is still worth just shy of £162 million.

Ronaldo knows that it will take a massive offer in order to sign him, while he will also command extremely high wages. "Those are the players I would pick out".

According to Tomas Roncero of AS, Ronaldo, 33, is particularly irked by the fact that Real look prepared to make a huge splash on the Brazilian when they have yet to improve his own contract.

But whether the easy-going, fan-hugging German fits the bill at Europe's most successful club remains to be seen. Germany boss Joachim Low meanwhile has ruled himself out of the running to become the next Real manager.

Salah is recovering from a shoulder injury he suffered in the Champions League final.
