"Cristiano is very much into his proteins. Stuff like slices of ham, eggs and avocados and the chefs are trying to help him with a little taste of home."
Some players at the club are not convinced with Ronaldo’s choices that they have asked for something more conventional.
The source continued:
"He also loves octopus but most of the lads won't go there. Even if it clearly works for Ronny!
"Ronny may try to convert a few of the lads to Portuguese food, but if some hoped it was just Peri-Peri chicken from Nandos they were disappointed!"
