Ronaldo Contract Confusion; War of Words with Mourinho

Spanish sports daily Marca is reporting that Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed to a new five-year deal with Real Madrid worth $22.5 million per season. The parties are also reportedly discussing the sale of Ronaldo’s image rights.

Meanwhile, rival Spanish sports daily AS quotes the Portugal captain as saying that no agreement has yet been reached. "The situation still hasn't been resolved and I don't think now is the right time to talk about it,” Ronaldo said. "Perhaps we'll be able to give more concrete news about this further down the line but now the only thing in my remit is to train and work."

Ronaldo and Real on Wednesday will play former coach Jose Mourinho and Chelsea in the final of the International Champions’ Cup. Mourinho gave an interview with ESPN over the weekend in which he criticized his former club and its star player, declaring that he coached 'the Real Ronaldo' when he was assistant coach of Barcelona between 1996-97, referring to the 2002 Brazilian World Cup winner.

Asked to respond to his former coach's comments, Cristiano said: "Some things in life are not worth commenting on and this is one more for obvious reasons. I prefer to remember the good things from coaches. I don't spit on the plate from which I eat and I don't speak about people who say bad things about me.”
