Perez mum on rumors Ronaldo wants to leave Madrid

Perez mum on rumors Ronaldo wants to leave Madrid

Ronaldo, the reigning Ballon d'Or award victor, feels he is being treated unfairly by Spain's tax authorities, whose "persecution" has made him determined to leave Real Madrid and the country, a source confirmed to ESPN FC.

The article also states that Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are all potentially interested in Ronaldo - but the 32-year-old wants to return to Manchester United.

Manchester United have been put on red alert after reports that Cristiano Ronaldo has indicated a desire to leave Real Madrid.

The Portuguese superstar told his former Old Trafford boss weeks ago he was planning to quit Real Madrid.




Under Perez, Real Madrid have won three Champions League titles in four seasons.

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. Portuguese sports daily A Bola then reported that Ronaldo was planning on leaving Madrid and it would be an "irreversible" decision. No one has sent us any offers, not for Ronaldo, not for James, nor for Morata. However, it seems unlikely that Ronaldo would want to take a step down to the French League at this stage.

"Even though he would make more of an impact at other teams that don't have such an impressive commercial appeal".

"I know Cristiano, he's a good guy as a professional and as a person".

If Wayne Rooney leaves the club, the team would be without a real talisman, and Rooney has been on the decline for a while now. United needs to improve the squad now, and manager Jose Mourinho likes to get deals done early so that he has the full squad for preseason training. United would do well to avoid the Ronaldo-shaped distraction and remain focused on key targets that were sought long before this saga came to light.
