The private jet of Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo left Lisbon, Portugal for Madrid in Spain on Wednesday, according to Portuguese football expert Pedro Sepulveda.

According to Sepulveda, the private jet of Cristiano Ronaldo arrived at Lisbon on Wednesday afternoon only to take off some minutes later to Madrid.

However, Sepulveda couldn’t confirm whether the Manchester United star was in the private jet that left Lisbon on Wednesday afternoon for Madrid.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo has been left “upset” he will be forced to take a pay cut at Manchester United next season, according to Samuel Luckhurst.

Ronaldo, who returned to Manchester United last summer on a contract of around £500,000 a week, will now earn around £360,000 a week next season.

Ronaldo has been hit by the club’s failure to qualify for the Champions League last season, triggering a pay cut of 25 per cent in his contract.

Ronaldo isn’t the only one affected, with several other members of the first-team squad also the victim of the club’s failures and seeing their pay packet reduced.

The reduction in his wages for next season has reportedly upset Ronaldo and this could be another reason why the 37 year old forward wants to leave Manchester United this summer.
