Real Madrid president Florentino warns Ronaldo: I'll replace you with Messi!

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has told Cristiano Ronaldo he'll replace him with Lionel Messi if he pushes to leave.

AS says Florentino made the claim to Ronaldo during their infamous summit in September.

Since that meeting, the pair have barely said two words to eachother, with Ronaldo angry over the president's reluctance to discuss new terms and a shake-up of his image rights.

The former Manchester United star is also angered by Florentino's remark that he'd replace him with Barcelona superstar Messi.

"Cristiano, if you go, we'll use the money we make on you to sign Messi," Florentino is said to have snapped at Ronaldo.
