Cristiano Ronaldo dodges questions as Real Madrid exit rumours escalate

19 June 2017

Real Madrid are reportedly demanding £131m from any side wanting to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.

The storm has gone on while Portugal are preparing for the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation - their first game coming against Mexico on Sunday - but Ronaldo's global colleague Andre Silva insists his captain is concentrating on the task at hand.

Real Madrid Super Star, Cristiano Ronaldo has disclosed to a close source that he wants to leave Real after being accused of tax fraud, the source told the BBC Sport.

Ronaldo, who is in Russian Federation as Portugal prepare for their opening match against Mexico, is said to be "outraged" after prosecutors accused the 32-year-old Real Madrid forward of defrauding the authorities of €14.8m (£12.9m).

Halep and Svitolina into French quarters
When Murray beat Wawrinka this time past year to reach his first French Open final, it was probably his best performance on a clay court.

The English giants will be eager to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford following his decision to leave Los Blancos.

And Ronaldo could be the flawless antidote to Chelsea's striker problems, with Conte determined to sell Diego Costa this summer.

The issue has now come to a head, with the 32-year-old reported to have informed Madrid of his desire to leave the reigning La Liga and Champions League title holders amid an unwelcome off-field saga.

"Knowing those around him, and how professional they are, I'm positive that Cristiano is innocent", he said. A report in The Sun says that they will pay his tax bill to get him to stay.

Ton for Fakhar Zaman as Pakistan flay Indian bowlers
On a lifeless wicket, Pakistan got a much-needed "life" early on in their innings and they kicked off from that point. Fakhar shared an opening stand of 128 with Azhar Ali and, after a mix-up that saw Azhar run out, sprang to life.

Given that Ronaldo is the highest earning athlete in the entire world, according to Forbes, United and PSG are two of the very few destinations that have both the big bankroll and the major brand presence to legitimately attract and possibly sign him.

To put that figure into perspective, the highest soccer transfer fee ever was Paul Pogba's move from Juventus to Manchester United last summer.

According to Marca when Zidane heard Ronaldo had sworn to quit he broke off from his family holiday and called his number seven to tell him Madrid "needed him for his goals, and also his winning mentality".

Former Madrid President Ramon Calderon thinks Ronaldo's return is more than possible.
