Cristiano Ronaldo was the centre of attention at Lisbon’s Humberto Delgado airport on Saturday ahead of Portugal’s flight to Russia for the World Cup.

The Real Madrid idol, who cast doubt over his Los Blancos future following last month’s Champions League success over Liverpool, will once again captain the Euro 2016 winners this summer.

Looking relaxed in his team suit, he put a thumbs up to his waiting fans and also posted a picture on his own social media channels.

It could be a defining next few weeks for the 33-year-old, with speculation he could leave Madrid after he finishes his duties with his country.

Portugal open their Group B campaign with a mouthwatering clash against Spain at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on June 15.

Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo has made an “irreversible” decision to quit Real Madrid this summer after being angered by a perceived breaking of promises about a new contract, according to reports.

Ronaldo, 33, announced within moments of victory against Liverpool in last month’s Champions League final that “it’s been great being” at Los Blancos.

Portuguese newspaper Record have stated this decision follows proclamations made to his agent, Jorge Mendes, by general manager Jose Angel Sanchez that the Portugal superstar’s demands will not be met during renewal talks. His relationship with president Florentino Perez is also alleged to have broken down.

Ronaldo’s current deal is scheduled to expire in June 2021.
