Bayern dismiss ´duck of the day´ Ronaldo rumours

Bayern dismiss ´duck of the day´ Ronaldo rumours

The four-time World Footballer of the Year has helped Real win the Champions League three times and La Liga twice.

Ronaldo has been accused of defrauding the Spanish tax office of nearly £13m over four counts of tax fraud relating to image rights, however, and despite being backed by Real Madrid, the attacker is said to want out of the Bernabeu this summer.

Ronaldo is now on worldwide duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup, and so in turn it's unlikely that there will be a definitive answer over his future until that tournament concludes.

The FC panel debate the rumours of Cristiano Ronaldo requesting a move out of Spain, possibly back to Manchester United.

According to A Bola, Ronaldo will quit Spain in outrage at the country's tax authorities and dismayed by Real's subsequent response.

Prosecutors in Madrid have filed a complaint in which they accused Ronaldo of a "voluntary" and "conscious" breach of his tax obligations, amounting to a figure of €14.7million.

Manchester United are ready to offer Real Madrid £175million plus David de Gea for the services of Cristiano Ronaldo, reports claim.




Portuguese sports daily A Bola then reported that Ronaldo was planning on leaving Madrid and it would be an "irreversible" decision.

The one thing that might stop Ronaldo from signing for Manchester United would be the current manager Jose Mourinho, who reportedly did not get along with the multiple-time Ballon d'Or victor during their time at Real Madrid.

"But, and I think we saw this in the Champions League Final, the fondness of the relationship was anchored on Sir Alex Ferguson, and he's no longer the manager".

Paper Round's view: Whilst it doesn't seem likely that Conte will just walk away from Chelsea, the board would probably be wise to give him a signing or two in the near future, particularly if United do press ahead and sign Ronaldo.

"The manager is Jose Mourinho and his relationship at the end with him at Real Madrid was hard, it wasn't good. I found out about all this from a newspaper", Perez said.

Manchester United sold Ronaldo to Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 for £80m and they have tried to set up a deal for his return on at least one occasion since his departure.
