Cristiano Ronaldo wants Madrid exit after tax evasion charges

Madrid, Spain – Cristiano Ronaldo has made an ‘irreversible decision’ to leave Real Madrid and Spain. This comes just days after the Real Madrid superstar was given tax evasion charges.

Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola claims the Real Madrid striker is angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and has expressed his wish to leave the country. Madrid-based newspaper Marca cited a front-page report from Portuguese daily A Bola.  Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain or AS Monaco would “lose their heads for the best player in the world”.

Ronaldo has “personally communicated” to Real president Florentino Perez and director general Jose Angel Sanchez his intention to leave the Santiago Bernabeu, per Marca‘s Jose Felix Diaz, who also confirmed A Bola‘s report.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner responded to the tax charges by posting a picture of himself ‘shushing’ at the camera along with the caption “Sometimes the best answer it’s to be quiet”.

Ronaldo’s Situation With Real

Ronaldo signed a new five-year contract to stay at the Bernabeu in November 2016, declaring he is ready to play on until his 41st birthday.

“This is a special day for me, extending my links with this club, the club of my heart. Renewing for five years is very special. Let it be clear that this is not the last contract,” said Ronaldo, only seven months ago.

Also, Ronaldo played a starring role in Real Madrid’s season, scoring 38 goals as Los Blancos retained the Champions League and won the La Liga title for the first time since 2012.

Additionally, Manchester United would be keen on bringing the 32-year-old back to the Premier League after their move for Antoine Griezmann collapsed earlier this summer.

United have taken the decision not to renew Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s one-year contract. Furthermore, Ronaldo could become the club’s number one transfer priority should he become available.

All things considered, Ronaldo is frequently whistled and jeered by Madrid fans. This, of course, whenever the player is not on top of his game.

Since his arrival at Madrid, he has dropped several hints over the season that he does not feel sufficient gratitude.

However, it seems highly unlikely the Portugal captain will leave the continent just yet. This because he is still in contention to win a fifth Ballon d’Or in 2017.

A return to Manchester, as mentioned before, would be the obvious bid. Added to this, it would open the doors for Kylian Mbappe to join Real Madrid this season.
