Ronaldo is rumoured to have made a decision to leave Real Madrid after he was charged by Spanish authorities over a €14.7m tax bill they claim to be due from his overseas earnings that went through an account in the British Virgin Islands.

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.

Real Madrid star forward Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly willing to leave the record European football champions after being accused of tax evasion totalling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million) by Spanish authorities. Los Blancos intend to push the bidders to as far as €200 million for the transfer fee.

However, his Real contract is understood to have a €1bn (£874m) buy-out clause and, in May, Forbes calculated his pre-tax salary as being close to 45m a year.

As one of the most marketable players in the world, Ronaldo's potential availability would generate much interest, but only the very richest clubs in the world would be able to afford him.

In just 265 games for Real Madrid Ronaldo has scored 285 goals, winning three Champions League finals in four seasons.

Reports in Portuguese newspaper A Bola report that the four time Balon d'Or victor has decided he wants to leave Spain this summer after accusations were pointed in his direction about tax evasion. Ronaldo's wages are likely to be out of reach for most clubs.

According to Eurosport, Real Madrid could settle for a transfer payment of around $150 million.

Meanwhile, former Real president Ramon Calderon believes it will be hard to convince Ronaldo to stay if he is determined to leave.

According to Spanish newspaper Marca, the 32-year-old has told his Portuguese teammates about his future plans with the La Liga club during a practice session in Kazan, Russia ahead of their FIFA Confederation Cup tie against Mexico on Sunday.
