Iker Casillas’ agent, Santos Marquez is convinced that Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to sell his image rights to a company owned by Valencia president, is a sign that the Portuguese is looking for a way out.
Ronaldo still has a contract till 2018 but raised eyebrows when he announced on June 29 his decision to sign a deal with Mint Media, a company owned by Valencia president Peter Lim.
Marquez believes this decision is because the forward is not satisfied with life under Florentino Perez and planning his exit.
“One day [Perez] will need to explain why Cristiano works for another company outside of Real Madrid,” the agent told AS.
“Imagine Cristiano generating €40 million elsewhere and giving it to Peter Lim, Valencia’s owner. It ends up in Valencia’s coffers and that’s deplorable…
“Will anyone speak out and ask Florentino why Cristiano has sold his image rights to Peter Lim?
“That’s not normal; it suggests that Cristiano is planning to leave.”
