Cristiano Ronaldo in apparent social media snub to Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo has issued an apparent snub to former club Real Madrid by removing the team from the list of accounts he follows on Instagram.

Ronaldo left the Spanish capital after nine years this summer when he completed a €100 million move to Italian giants Juventus.

There are reports that the Portuguese ace is keen to sell off his property portfolio in Spain, and his severing of ties with the club and country appears to have extended to the social media scene.

He now follows a number of his new Juve teammates, including Paolo Dybala and Juan Cuadrado, as well as new boss Massimiliano Allegri.

Ronaldo joined up with his new teammates for the first time earlier this week after his summer break following his exploits at the World Cup in Russia.

It recently emerged that Ronaldo, 33, will pay a €3.2 million (US$3.7 million) fine for tax fraud after settling a tax evasion case with the Spanish authorities. The amount is likely to be only part of a total €19 million he will repay as part of the case.
