Former Portugal international, Luis Figo, has said “nobody is indispensable”, amid heavy speculation that his compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo could leave Real Madrid this summer.
Ronaldo has refused to comment on his future, after reports emerged that he wants a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Madrid president Florentino Perez, insisted that the 32-year-old will not be sold, but Figo insists no player or official is bigger than the the La Liga and European champions.
“I hold the opinion that nobody is indispensable, not just Cristiano Ronaldo,” Figo told Gol when asked about the Portugal forward’s future.
“Clubs can’t depend on anybody. The history of these clubs is above everyone, even the president or whoever.”
He added: “A lot of things would have to happen for him to leave. “It is a personal decision and if a person really wants something to happen then it will end up happening, but I see it as unlikely.”
