Real Madrid chiefs will hold crisis talks with Cristiano Ronaldo on Wednesday. The international break has prevented president Florentino Perez from meeting face-to-face with Ronaldo since his comments made after victory over Granada.

AS says a meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, which will also be attended by coach Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United and Manchester City are monitoring developments closely, with English press reports suggesting both clubs are preparing to pay big to bring the former United star back to England.
