Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has told the Spanish giants' management that he won't sign a new contract as he still upset about a professional matter with the Royal Club.

The Portuguese star will leave the club when his current deal expires in 2015 in a free transfer, Spanish newspaper AS revealed Thursday.

The 27-year-old forward Ronaldo refused to celebrate after his first two La Liga goals of the season during Real Madrid’s 3-0 win over Granada, confirming his upset with the club.

"I didn't celebrate the goals because I'm upset. It's about a professional matter and the club knows what it is,” Ronaldo said, before insisting that he was “not going to say anymore on the subject.”

AS also revealed that Ronaldo will refuse a contract extension prepared for next summer as he believes his issue will not be resolved with money and that the club will do nothing to recover his happiness except for offering more money.

"Ronaldo expected Real Madrid would take action after he made his upset public," the Spanish newspaper stated.

Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win the league title last season for the first time since 2008, ending the dominance of archrivals Barcelona.
