'Outraged' Cristiano Ronaldo might quit Real Madrid over tax treatment

'Outraged' Cristiano Ronaldo might quit Real Madrid over tax treatment

The report in A Bola, a Portuguese paper, goes on to state that the player is apparently upset at being accused of tax fraud by a Spanish prosecutor and thinks that it is perhaps time for him to leave Spain behind.

The undoubted star attraction, Ronaldo arrives in Russian Federation looking to round off another stellar season after leading Real Madrid to a first La Liga title in five years.

The "announcement" that Cristiano Ronaldo wanted to leave Real Madrid was sport's equivalent of Theresa May calling a snap election, it threw everyone into a bit of panic.

The shocking news was backed up hours later on the website of newspaper Marca, which is viewed as Madrid's mouthpiece.

The Portuguese star has won three Champions League trophies with the Merengues, scoring a preposterous 285 goals in 265 Liga games for them.

Ronaldo has chose to leave real Madrid because of the tax scandal- the Prosecutor's office in Madrid has accused the player of failing to pay taxes on the amount of 14.7 million euros.

Ronaldo, who is at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation with the Portuguese national team, is the latest in a long line of football players in Spain - among them Barcelona forwards Lionel Messi and Neymar - to be caught up in cases over tax or transfers.

Ronaldo was genuinely happy at United, but after winning it all, he decided the time was right to fulfil his life's ambition of playing for Real Madrid.




The Blues manager is said to be a big fan of the Spain striker and is keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer. Their desire to sign Monaco's Kylian Mbappe is apparently so strong that they will not stand in Ronaldo's way should he try to leave the club.

The Real Madrid superstar is said to be disillusioned by claims by authorities that defrauded authorities of 14.7million euros, which he refutes.

Ferdinand tweeted "Viva Ronaldo" in a nod to the United faithful's song about the winger and accompanied it with the "eyes" emoji before tagging Ronaldo in the tweet.

Ronaldo is now away on worldwide duty with Portugal, where he is reported to have told his teammates: "I am leaving Real Madrid".

Ronaldo, who joined Real from Manchester United for £80m in 2009, signed a five-year deal with the European champions in November 2016.

"I hope he hasn't chose to leave but if he has already made his mind up, it will be hard to change the situation".

"So, he is determined to leave Spain, yes".
