Perez: I haven't spoken yet with Ronaldo

20 June 2017, 10:00 | Charlene Valdez

Ronaldo has been accused by prosecutors of defrauding Spanish tax authorities out of €14.7million, some $16.4 million, an allegation that he strenuously has denied.

Cristiano Ronaldo's woes deepened Tuesday when the star striker who reportedly wants to quit Real Madrid was summoned to appear before a judge investigating tax fraud.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be staying at Spanish giants Real Madrid and no offer has been received to tempt him away, club president Florentino Perez insisted on Tuesday (June 20).

Reports linking Champions League victor Cristiano Ronaldo with a possible move to Bayern Munich if the Portuguese made a decision to leave Real Madrid were a hoax, the German champions said on Monday.

Perez assured the fans that the Portugal worldwide would be honouring his contract with Real Madrid while insisting that he would contact the star striker only after the conclusion of Portugal's Confederations Cup campaign.

"I learned of the [reports] through what a newspaper said".


His thoughts on Cristiano Ronaldo potentially leaving Real Madrid have caught the headlines.

The news comes as current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is also accused of tax fraud amounting to £2.91m during his time at Real Madrid.

His first big challenge is keeping Ronaldo at the club he joined in 2009 from Manchester United for a record 94 million euros ($105.3 million). Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano, among others, have already been convicted.

Ibrahimovic is set to leave at the end of his contract and United captain Wayne Rooney has yet to announce where he will be playing his club football next season, although David de Gea's future is becoming clearer.

The main driver of those high ranks are the huge business successes of both: Madrid is now worth $3.6 billion, good for third-most among soccer teams, while Ronaldo is the world's highest-paid athlete with earnings of $93 million.

In European competition, he has led Porto to UEFA Cup victory in 2003 and a Champions League triumph in 2004, and also won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010.
