Real Madrid key player threatens to quit Real Madrid if Ronaldo is allowed to leave

Life at Real Madrid is a little unhappy right now. After a dramatic end to last season which saw the Spanish giants lift the domestic league title and become the first club to retain the Champions League, the summer has been full of negative stories and the biggest one of all of course, is the possible departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar has threatened to quit the club due to their lack of support regarding the tax evasion charges levelled against him and which he strongly denies. Now one of his team-mates has threatened to walk out if the four-time Ballon d’Or winner vacates his seat in the dressing room.

Don Balon writes that Brazilian full-back Marcelo, who is close friend of Ronaldo, will also consider his future if his mate is allowed to leave the Santiago Bernabeu. The 29-year-old has spent ten years in the capital and is playing some of the best football of his career right now. The portal claims that the Brazilian is one of many players who are trying to convince Ronaldo to stay next season.
