Real Madrid would only allow Cristiano Ronaldo to leave if €400 million was offered, according to media outlet, Marca, which has close links in the Spanish capital to this month's Champions League winners.

The 32-year-old is unhappy at the Santiago Bernabeu due to what he and his advisors consider to be a lack of support over his battle with Spanish tax authorities, in addition to negative press in Spain and booing from many Madrid supporters.

Ronaldo penned a new five-year deal in November last year, earning €400,000 per week.

His buyout clause is set at €1billion, though this figure is unrealistic - even for a super-rich club in China.

The Far East, for €400million, could be a possibility, along with a move to former team, Manchester United, or Paris Saint-Germain.

Marca claim that Real Madrid are calm about the Ronaldo situation and hope to discuss the issue after the Confederations Cup, which the attacker is taking part in with Portugal.
