Ronaldo reportedly also wants more reinforcements in defence although he has apparently stated that he is happy with the current forward line in place at the Bernabeu.

Athletic are not interested in selling the 23-year-old Spain international, but the European champions will bypass negotiations with the Basque club by paying the €20 million required to trigger his clause and begin talks with the player.

Athletic will, however, make an attempt to persuade the shot stopper to snub Zinedine Zidane's side and remain at San Mames.
