Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has said that wants to leave Spain, according to reports from Portugal.
Ronaldo’s stance is due to his unhappiness over his treatment by Spanish tax authorities, who have accused him of 14.7 million euro tax evasion, according to Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola. Ronaldo has strenuously denied the accusations.
A Bola added that Ronaldo has said his decision is “irreversible” and that he has told his team-mates of his intentions.
Ronaldo only signed a new long-term deal with Los Blancos seven months ago. He scored 38 goals for Madrid last season, as they achieved the La Liga and Champions League double.
As for a potential destination, should Ronaldo prove to be available Manchester United would be thought to be first in the queue. Jose Mourinho is a known fan of Ronaldo, and has worked with him previously. Ronaldo also forged his reputation in Manchester. Finally, the club are known to be looking for a marquee signing, having lost out on previous number one target Antoine Griezmann.
