Frustrated by the tax allegations, Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo announced his desire to leave the Bernabeu this summer. He felt he was being treated unfairly by Spain’s tax authorities and his Portuguese team-mates were the first to know of his decision.
Ronaldo’s former club Manchester United pounced in on the situation to bring him back to Old Trafford.
However, Florentino Perez insists Cristiano Ronaldo is free to leave if a club is ready to pay his 880 million release clause.
“I have not spoken with Ronaldo. I learned of the [reports] through what a newspaper said. He’s immersed in the Confederations Cup [with Portugal] at the moment, which is an important competition, and for the moment there’s nothing until that ends. Like the all other players, though, he has a contract and is a Real Madrid player,” said Perez.
“In football and life, in general, we encounter situations which we don’t expect and we have to find the best solution for everyone. I know Cristiano and he’s a good guy, not just with the ball, but as a person. This is all very strange, I will have to speak with him to see what’s going on,” he added.
Moreover, Real Madrid fans have launched a petition asking for Ronaldo’s tax case to be dropped.
