Cristiano Ronaldo was a conspicuous absentee as Real Madrid launched their new shirts for next season.
Moments after securing his fourth Champions League title in the last five seasons with the Spanish giants, Ronaldo appeared to cast doubt on his Real Madrid future.
Following Saturday’s memorable 3-1 win over Liverpool, he told BeIN Sports Spain: “It was very nice to be at Real Madrid. In the next few days, I will speak. I am going to enjoy this with my team-mates and in the next few days I’ll give an answer.”
And speculation about Ronaldo’s future will no doubt intensify after he was the only first-team squad member not pictured in either the home or away shirt for next season, which went on sale on Real Madrid’s website on Tuesday.
In fact, Ronaldo is the only member of Real’s first-team squad whose photo in the new shirt does not appear when you use the shop by player function on the club’s official website.
Gareth Bale, whose own Real future appears up in the air, is pictured in the home shirt next season along with 23 other members of the squad, as well as Real boss Zinedine Zidane.
