“I think Cristiano stays at Real Madrid and Antoine Griezmann stays at Atletico,” he told Onda Cero .

While the departure of Ronaldo would be considered a blow to La Liga, Tebas insisted he was unconcerned.

“Cristiano Ronaldo leaving, out of 10, I’m worried about a five or a four,” he said.

“It wouldn’t be so dramatic for the league. We are becoming more independent of great players.”
