I'm leaving Real Madrid, Ronaldo tells national teammates

It surely goes a long way to prising away suitors to a certain extent, but if Ronaldo really wants to leave his parent club, there is not a lot Madrid can do.

Real Madrid issued a statement fully supporting the player, claiming they were "absolutely convinced of his innocence", but Ronaldo is unsatisfied with the club over their attempts to defend him on the matter.

Thus Madrid are clear that blackmail will not win out when it comes to this soap opera, which they feel has wounded the club unfairly.

A Spanish state prosecutor accused the 32-year-old of failing to pay €14.7 million in unpaid taxes on image rights earned between 2011 and 2014.

Manchester United are one of the richest clubs in the world as they would love to get Cristiano Ronaldo back.

Ronaldo's management company Gestifute insisted on Thursday the company, Tollin, established during his time with Manchester United - from whom he moved to Real Madrid in 2009 - has acted in accordance with British and Spanish tax laws.

That has prompted speculation linking him with Paris St Germain and Manchester United amongst others, but Silva, who completed a big-money switch to AC Milan from Porto earlier this month, insists the four-time Champions League victor remains focused on his country's upcoming matches.

The original deal to sign Ronaldo from United for £80m in 2009 was negotiated by Perez's successor, Ramon Calderon, and there has always been a view that, though the deal was announced shortly after Perez had returned to the club as president, Ronaldo was never regarded as his signing. "I can't tell you what he's doing but I hope he will stay, I'm sure he'll stay", he added. "Cristiano is concentrated 100 per cent on helping the team, he's an example to all of us, a great athlete".

And it seemed natural Ronaldo will want to play again for the Manchester United.
