Cristiano Ronaldo has hinted that he's not entirely happy with Real Madrid's transfer business this summer.

The Portugal forward suggested that while he supports Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, he might have done things a little differently.

As it is, Real Madrid have brought in James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos, Keylor Navas and Javier Hernandez in notable deals, but they let Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso go, as well as young striker Alvaro Morata.

Here's what Ronaldo said, per Dermot Corrigan:

Still, any way you slice it, Real Madrid's team this year doesn't look too shabby. Despite a 4-2 loss at the hands of Real Sociedad on Sunday, Los Blancos should be a major contender in La Liga this season.
