Real Madrid CF president Perez plays down rumors of Cristiano Ronaldo's exit

Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid celebrates at full time during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg match between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid played at the Vicente Calderon Stadium Madrid Spain on 10th May 2017  Football- UEFA Champion

The accusation against Mourinho comes a week after the Madrid-based prosecutor's office accused Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo of defrauding Spain's tax office of €14.7m (£12.9m).

"Last year we had a chance that we did not take and now we have no agreement with Manchester United to sign him".

The 32-year-old is now away with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, where he has so far evaded questions over his future - including skipping the traditional man-of-the-match press conference after Sunday's draw with Mexico.

Onda Cero also asked Florentino Perez about rumours linking Real Madrid with Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal global scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus.

"All I can say is that Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with Madrid".

"Subsequently has thrown venomous verbal darts at Cristiano Ronaldo, including remarks like "I coached the real Ronaldo". This is very unusual and in the next few days I'll talk to him. I will always defend Cristiano as a person and as a footballer.

"What is very important for me is to insist that no one is a criminal if he is not convicted", Montoro told a press conference.


Ronaldo is said to be "upset" after being accused of tax fraud and wants to leave, a source close to the player told the BBC.

"He is a Real Madrid player and will remain so".

Perez's first task after being re-elected unopposed as Real Madrid president on Monday will be to appease Ronaldo amid speculation the four-time world player of the year wants to leave. "Working assumption is that he will stay in Madrid".

But neither the Real star, on global duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, nor the club itself have confirmed reports that he is heading for the exit at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Arsenal are also said to be interested in the teenager, with manager Arsene Wenger hoping to sign a striker capable of supporting Alexis Sanchez up front, but the Gunners will have competition in the form of Madrid, with Perez stating Los Blancos are monitoring his situation.

However, a glum-looking Ronaldo did do a short post-match interview with FIFA's in-house media.

"The team continue to believe in qualification, we have great possibilities, because there are still two games left".

"We do not have to sound the alarm". According to them, Mourinho evaded tax on two counts, reported The Independent.
