They've had a decent run, Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid. Two La Liga titles. Three Champions Leagues. Two Copa del Rey. Some other stuff. And course: a few quid generated in both directions.
But now, according to reports in Spain, the love affair is coming to an end as CR7 prepares to leave the club at the end of the season.
TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones is claiming that Ronaldo has already told Real president Florentino Perez he wants out in the summer.
The 32-year-old is reportedly unhappy that the club had the cheek to try and sign 18-year-old forward Kylian Mbappe from Monaco this summer (he went to PSG instead) with an eye on the future, instead of playing him unchallenged into his forties (presumably).
Asked earlier this month if he was planning to sign a new contract with the Spanish giants, Ronaldo told beIN Sports: "I don't want to renew. I don't want to renew. I'm very happy with the contract I have," which in football-speak usually means "I'm very unhappy and I'm leaving as soon as possible".
To be fair, Ronaldo's record so far this season – by his own deity-standards – have been relatively poor.
All goods things, and all that.
But where could The World's Second Greatest Player be running, bare-chested, into next? PSG and Man United fans will be hopeful, but we're backing him to start his own club: CR7 United. In goal? Ronaldo. Back left? Ronaldo. Centre back? Ronaldo...
