Real president Perez 'not contemplating' Ronaldo departure

Real president Perez 'not contemplating' Ronaldo departure

Ronaldo's discontent has alerted clubs all over the world but he has been linked most strongly with a return to United, or a transfer to PSG.

Real Madrid issued a statement fully supporting the player, claiming they were "absolutely convinced of his innocence", but Ronaldo is unsatisfied with the club over their attempts to defend him on the matter.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho does not want Cristiano Ronaldo back at the club, the Daily Express reports.

Ronaldo maintains his innocence in the tax evasion case and insisted that did everything in accordance with Spanish law.

Ronaldo spent six years at the club between 2003 and 2009, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances for the Red Devils while winning three Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy amongst countless other pieces of silverware.

Upon hearing the news, the Real boss reportedly immediately phoned his player, who is now with Portugal at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, to discover the real reasons behind his decision to make his intentions public.

The 32 year old is said to have "pleaded" with agent Jorge Mendes to seal the deal - which would see him return to Mancunian soil. "I am sure that Cristiano complies with his tax duties, it must be a confusion that will be cleared". Perez says he has not received any offers for the trio.

The destination could be Manchester United, Real Madrid, China or even the United States.

Ronaldo's future has become uncertain following accusations that he had defrauded the Spanish tax authorities out of €14.7 million.

"It was not the result we wanted, the team had nearly won and we suffered in the last minutes, but this is football", he said.

A four-time Ballon d'Or victor, the 32-year-old Ronaldo is the top European soccer player. However, Manchester United's history with overpaying for players in these last years, namely Anthony Martial, around $70 million, and Paul Pogba, around $120 million, weakens the club's ability to prove it's a smart, hard negotiator.
