A report claims that Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos has set up a new WhatsApp chat for a select group of his teammates, with Cristiano Ronaldo among those left out.
Dani Ceballos has excluded superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo from a newly-formed WhatsApp group for Real Madrid players, according to a report.
The 21-year-old, who arrived at the Bernabeu from Real Betis in a £15m deal during the summer, is said to have created the chat in an attempt to keep his teammates connected away from training.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol claims that Ronaldo was one of the high-profile omissions from the group, however, as Ceballos only wanted to include the club's Spanish players.
News of the snub comes one day on from suggestions that Ronaldo has fallen out with Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos, with the Portuguese growing increasingly disgruntled at the Bernabeu.
The former Manchester United ace has hit back at his critics, meanwhile, insisting that there is more to his game than simply scoring goals.
