Cristiano Ronaldo tells Real Madrid to sign Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal stars
CRISTIANO RONALDO has told Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez that he must sign five new players this summer.
As well as crashing out of the Copa del Rey, they are 15 points behind Barcelona in La Liga. By their standards, the Bernabeu side have had a poor season.
Los Blancos are expected to spend big in one of their biggest squad shake-ups in recent history.
And that includes a number of high-profile departures, reportedly including Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic.
Even boss Zinedine Zidane is a doubt but will hang on if the club can salvage their season through the Champions League.
