Cristiano Ronaldo is set to leave Real Madrid this summer because he no longer wants to play in Spain any more, according to Sky Sources.
The Portuguese left Old Trafford back in 2009 for a world record £80m fee to join Madrid and has gone on to claim 406 goals in 394 games.
He recently admitted to missing life in Manchester, expressing a measure of discontent at the way Madrid supporters turned on their team.
And according to Sky Sources, Ronaldo will leave Madrid after finally securing a La Liga and Champions League double last season.

Well, hello there. This is something that I don’t think any of us expected – something that has, make no mistake, shifted the parameters of this summer’s transfer market.
The 32-year-old has flirted with the idea of returning to Old Trafford in the past and clearly still holds the club close to his heart. This is, after all, the place that oversaw his transformation from a talented, skilful youngster into the finest athlete of the modern era.
He came to Cardiff earlier this month and, once again, painted the beautiful game in his own unique colour: arrogance, flamboyance and ultimate destruction personified.
Any club that manages to secure his signature can rightfully claim to be strong favourites to win next season’s Champions League.
