Cristiano Ronaldo Has Reportedly Told Real Madrid He Wants To Leave This Summer

In a shocking development in Spain overnight, it has been widely reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has informed Real Madrid that he wishes to leave the club this summer. 

According to A Bola, a newspaper in his home country of Portugal, the four-time Ballon d’Or winner wants out of the Santiago Bernabeau and Spain as a whole. He is reportedly so angry with his treatment over the recent tax fraud allegations that his decision is “irreversible,” say the daily Portuguese paper on their front page.

Ronaldo is believed to have made his intention to walk away from the club where he has won three out of his four Champions League medals crystal clear to Madrid president, Florentino Perez.

The 31-year-old is subject to a lawsuit by Spanish prosecuters for the alleged defrauding of €15 million worth of tax on image rights income.

Although the Spanish capital based club have released a statement on the issue, in which they have claimed that they are “absolutely convinced of his innocence,” A Bola claim that the player has one foot out the Real exit door. The daily paper has also reported that the ex-Manchester United and Sporting Lisbon star is set to be subject of a €180 million bid this summer.

This news will throw clubs such as the Portugal national team captain’s former club, United, where he won his first Champions League and Ballon d’Or, on red alert. Jose Mourinho has worked previously with Ronaldo at Madrid, where the pair won a La Liga title, while there is no doubting the adoration the Old Trafford faithful will always have for the goal machine.

Ronaldo himself has candidly spoke of his undying love for his old club, whom he left for the Spanish giants in 2009 for a world record transfer fee, and has never ruled out a future return to the Red Devils in interviews when faced with the hypothetical question.
