Ronaldo decides to stay at Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has undergone a change of heart over his future and has decided to remain at Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.

Madrid president Florentino Perez admitted Ronaldo was left ‘angry and hurt’ after accusations from the Spanish authorities that he had evaded £12.9million in tax. Ronaldo informed the club that he would leave if he was convicted of tax fraud and even held a secret meeting with Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, just hours before scoring twice in the Champions League final win over Juventus. But AS report that Ronaldo has now chosen to stay at Madrid, having been convinced by the club’s hierarchy that he remains crucial to their future plans. Despite an upcoming court appearance on July 31 over the tax accusations, the outlet report that Ronaldo’s representatives have persuaded him that it’s in his best interests to continue at the Bernabeu. AS’s Sunday edition front page shows the 32-year-old using a flyboard while on holiday, accompanied by the headline ‘Ronaldo is relaxing.’ Perez previously suggested he would talk with the player after he returned from the Confederations Cup and asserted that he was confident he would stay. The president has repeatedly come out in Ronaldo’s defence since the allegations and said it was unacceptable that his star man was being ‘treated like a criminal’. Ronaldo flew back to Madrid in time to be with his newborn twins, who were born via a surrogate mother, after Portugal were knocked out in the semi-finals by Chile. Though Madrid’s squad will report for pre-season training on Monday, Ronaldo will be given extra time off to recover and is not expected to return until late July.

Update: Zidane begs Ronaldo to stay at Madrid

Contrary to speculations that current World Footballer of the Year, Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid.

His coach, Zinedine Zidane has been pleading Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Real Madrid in a recent personal plea to the attacker over the phone, reports revealed.

But Ronaldo reiterated his desire to leave Spain and told his manager that his decision was final amid reports Manchester United and Chelsea want to bring him back to England.

Spanish Radio Cope claim Zidane spoke to Ronaldo directly after reports emerged he had told Real he wants a summer exit.

Ronaldo is reportedly furious at allegations he has committed tax fraud and has been upset by the lack of backing he has received from the club.

Spanish authorities will now determine whether Ronaldo is guilty or not, but the superstar expected much more support from within Spain.

Ronaldo was a key part of Zidane’s Champions League and La Liga title winning squad last season and remains the most consistent source of goals.

Zidane does not want to see his best player walk away, but the Frenchman has been rebuked in his attempts to convince Ronaldo to stay.

Ronaldo reportedly told Zidane he feels like he his being treated like a ‘delinquent’ and hit out at the media coverage of the tax investigation.

The Portugal international is in Russia at the Confederations Cup and agreed to speak to Zidane again once the tournament is over.

Ronaldo has not received any concrete offers from other clubs with the Confederations Cup set to come to an end on July 2.

A return to Old Trafford has been heavily mooted in recent days with United thought to be keen on re-signing Ronaldo.

Why Ronaldo will never forgive R. Madrid over tax fraud allegation

Image result for Cristiano RonaldoIt is very obvious that Manchester United are watching the Cristiano Ronaldo show with renewed interest after the Real Madrid striker made it plain he is “outraged” at what he feels is unfair treatment by tax authorities and is now determined to leave Spain.

The 32-year-old feels he is being singled out for disproportionate treatment after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of €14.7m.

A source close to the player claims the “outraged” Portugal international “feels great indignation” following the public speculation about his tax affairs and a sense of “injustice” at the allegations – which he contests – and he has made a decision to leave the country.

Ronaldo, who signed a new five-year contract in November, has made no secret of his affection for United – the club he left to join Madrid in 2009 after six years at Old Trafford – and José Mourinho, who shares the same super agent Jorge Mendes, would relish his return as he seeks to build a team capable of a title challenge and a successful campaign in the Champions League.

United remain one of the clubs with the financial muscle to offer a competitive package for Ronaldo – they are predicting record revenues of up to £570m this year – and his return would be a dream commercial move.

 He has a €1bn (£880m) release clause in his current Madrid deal and United – now without Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s wages on the books and the potential to lose Wayne Rooney’s financial burden soon – would be able to meet Ronaldo’s wage demands of around £400,000 a week. Paris Saint-Germain could match United’s offer but the Old Trafford move presents Ronaldo with his fairytale moment and a far grander stage on which to perform. The potential availability of one of the world’s most marketable players will also naturally alert the Chinese Super League clubs.

Reports that Ronaldo wanted to leave Real were sparked on Friday in the Portuguese newspaper A Bola. It claimed his decision was “irreversible” and that he has already told his Madrid team-mates that he wants to leave.

The root of Ronaldo’s anger stems from Spanish prosecutors’ lawsuit against the player, accusing him of defrauding tax authorities of €14.7m by hiding his image rights income between 2011 and 2014. Ronaldo has categorically denied any wrongdoing. Real backed that assertion, saying they were confident the Portuguese forward had acted legally.

Following the tax allegations, Ronaldo posted a picture of himself with his fingers to his lips on Instagram with the caption: “Sometimes the best answer it’s to be quiet.”Earlier this week Ronaldo’s agency Gestifute released a statement which read: “There is no tax evasion scheme … There has never been any hiding nor any intention to hide anything.”

Ronaldo’s frustrations at his treatment come after leading Real to three Champions League titles, scoring twice in last month’s final against Juventus in Cardiff as they became the first club to retain the trophy. He also became only the second player to score in three different finals and remains the competition’s record goalscorer with 105.

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi took a similar stance in threatening to quit Spain in 2014, also claiming he had been singled out for special treatment when he was accused of concealing €4.1m from the authorities. The Argentina international was found guilty and subsequently lost an appeal against a 21-month prison sentence – under Spanish law sentences under two years are usually suspended – and a €2.1m (£1.8m) fine.
