Cristiano Ronaldo is using the power of social media to set the record straight. On Thursday, the soccer superstar told nearly 19,000,000 Twitter followers that he has not signed a new contract with Real Madrid. All the news about my renewal with Real Madrid are false.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) June 13, 2013 Ronaldo’s message flies in the face of recent speculation saying he was set to extend his stay in the Spanish capital. His current deal runs until 2015, and club president Florentino Perez says he will make the Portuguese forward the highest-paid player in the world if he signs a contract extension. Ronaldo shocked Real Madrid (and the soccer world) last summer when he sad he was “sad” with life at the club and reportedly told Perez that he wanted a transfer. The club refused to sell him, but that didn’t stop potential suitors from stepping forward. Manchester United, PSG and AS Monaco are believed to be willing to spend up to £85 million [$133.4 million] to sign him this summer. If Ronaldo rejects Real Madrid‘s contract offer, the club would have little choice but to sell him since his transfer value will decrease as 2015 approaches. Ronaldo recently put his $7 million villa up for sale, suggesting he is ready to end a Real Madrid career that has seen him score 201 goals in 199 games over the last four seasons.
