I bet Ronaldo stays at Madrid, says Casemiro


It remained goalless until half-time, but Real eventually ran out 3-1 winners thanks to Karim Benzema's opener, which was quickly cancelled out by Sadio Mane, and a brace from Gareth Bale.

Gareth Bale has had a hard season at Real Madrid, regularly left out by Zinedine Zidane he has struggled for game time and there has been plenty of speculation linking him with a move away.

"It was very nice to be at Real Madrid".

"[He makes it] easier for the other players in midfield and up-front and also the defence, because defensively they have to think of him because he's a really risky player". Gareth Bale's unsettled attitude and his comments have already sounded out a number of Premier League clubs as well as the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

Others on Twitter pointed out that by the time he held the trophy, Real captain Ramos had put on a gaudy American-style championship ring, presumably made in advance, bearing the words "Sergio Ramos", "SR4" and "champion" and the names of the four cities where he had won the Champions League with Real: Lisbon, Milan, Cardiff and Saturday's host city Kiev. His ability to accelerate as well as muscle past defenders and his eye for goal makes him a player of inimitable calibre even with his unenvious injury history. I feel sorry for my team.

"Who's disappointed? Perhaps they need to change the name of the Champions League to the CR7 Champions League. These goals cost us the title basically".

"I am going to enjoy this moment and in the next few days I will give an answer to the fans, who have always been at my side", Ronaldo told BeIN Sports Spain.

"Cristiano has to stay no matter what". I know if you say that after you lost it sounds like you're a bad loser but for us it was like a harsh challenge. "I judged it wrong and it went in". "It's true some players deserve more playing time on the pitch but this is a decision that has to be made by the manager".

But it just might have been the last match of his nine-year Real Madrid career as he reportedly looks for a pay rise of £7m a year to take him up to £25m a year.

It isn't the first time Ronaldo, who joined Real from Manchester United for a then-world record fee in 2009, has appeared close to the exit door at the Santiago Bernabeu.
