It's tough to say just how serious the situation is right now, but such a split would have a huge impact not only on soccer's competitive landscape - Ronaldo just finished leading Real Madrid to its second consecutive Champions League title - but also on the sports business universe.
The speculated transfer figure would be more than twice the record 94 million euros Real paid Manchester United for Ronaldo in 2009.
Upon hearing the news, the Real boss reportedly immediately phoned his player, who is now with Portugal at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, to discover the real reasons behind his decision to make his intentions public.

"I have not spoken with Ronaldo", Perez said.
Football Paradise understands Ronaldo feels he has been singled out for disproportionate treatment after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of 14.7million euros (£12.8m).
"I don't have any solution but Cristiano, like everyone else, has a contract and is a Real Madrid player", Perez told radio station Onda Cero on Monday after earning a third consecutive mandate at Real.
Ronaldo, who is now away on worldwide duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup, is understood to be keen to leave Spain in the wake of the claims, leaving Europe's biggest clubs - including Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain - on high alert.

Perez also insisted Real had not received any offers for Ronaldo - or for his fellow forwards Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez, who have both been heavily linked with moves away from the Bernabeu this summer.
The article also states that Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are all potentially interested in Ronaldo - but the 32-year-old wants to return to Manchester United.
The club has proved shrewder in the transfer market in recent years, however, and last season's Champions League and La Liga double was built on a robust squad, allowing coach Zidane to freely rotate his side while still winning domestic games, keeping his first choice team fit and fresh for European ties.More news: Durant to opt out and re-sign with Warriors
