First Kaka wanted to leave, now Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo says he is "sad" at the Spanish club.
Ronaldo said he was upset with "people in the club" after scoring twice to lead Madrid to a 3-0 win over Granada on Sunday.
The Portuguese player oddly chose not to celebrate his goals, remaining glum as his team-mates and fans at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium erupted around him.
When asked why after the match, Ronaldo said: "I am sad and the club knows it, that's why I didn't celebrate the goals. The people in the club know why."
Ronaldo's comments have sparked rumours in the Spanish press that he is looking to leave Madrid.
The 27-year-old refused to elaborate on the reasons for his displeasure with the club that spent a record 80 million pounds to secure him from Manchester United in 2009.
"I'm not going to say anything else, people know why," he said.
Ronaldo's double on Sunday took his tally with Madrid to 150 goals in just over three seasons.
He set a club record of 46 Spanish league goals last season, second only to Barcelona forward Lionel Messi's league record of 50.
Ronaldo, a former Ballon D'or winner, also denied he was angry Barcelona's Andres Iniesta had beaten him to this year's players' award on Friday (30th August).
"I'm very happy about this goal tally, but the most important thing is the team, Real Madrid. I'm happy to have contributed to this victory. The league starts for us today."
(On not celebrating his goals). "Maybe it's because I'm a little upset, that's the only reason. When I don't celebrate goals it's because I'm not happy." (Question: Why to you say that 'people' know why (you're upset)?) "People here at the club, they know why. I have nothing further to say."
(Question: Is it anything to do with your form?) "Five games, four goals - it's got nothing to do with that."
