New deal Cristiano Ronaldo and Florentino Perez

The fifth goal game 12 minutes from time, this time Casemiro perfectly picking out Ronaldo at the far post to tap home his first La Liga goal since December 9.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo broke his dry spell in a powerhouse performance Sunday - but it wasn't his goal-scoring that made headlines.

The win leaves Real five points behind Valencia in third, after Marcelino Garcia Toral's side had two players sent off in a shock 2-1 loss at lowly Las Palmas on Saturday.

According to The Sunday Times the Spanish giants are lining up a record £200million bid for the England hitman, who scored his club's equaliser in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Southampton, his 21st league goal of the season.

The Bernabeu was very restless early in the game when relegation threatened Depor went 1-0 up through Adrian Lopez, but defender Nacho soon equalised and Bale then put Madrid ahead with a trademark curling strike.

After the forward pass from Marcelo, Ronaldo fell and demanded a penalty from the referee when the ball came to Bale.

Madrid have struggled so far this campaign, sitting fourth in the table and 19 points behind leaders and rivals Barcelona.

Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo ended his goal drought with a volleyed effort to make it five.

"The players needed a game like this", Zidane said.

"I don't know if much changed apart from the scoreline and that's the biggest difference".

"After the first goal, we were able to play more openly", Valverde said.

Prior to this game, Real Madrid's awful second half record was well known.

Ronaldo can be seen looking unimpressed as medics treated a cut to the side of his head as blood covered his face.

"I think we'll get back to our best slowly but surely".

Zinedine Zidane's Real future is now up in the air, with the Spanish giants having a terrible season so far.
