Ronaldo Seeks Real Madrid Exit After Tax Accusations

Spanish daily AS have an interesting article on Monday looking at clubs who will profit if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves Real Madrid this summer.

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.

Ronaldo has told Real Madrid he wants to quit the club this summer and leave Spain altogether.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who won the La Liga as well as defending the Champions League 2017 title with Real Madrid this season, has told his agent Jorge Mendes that he wants to return to his former club Manchester United.

The one thing that might stop Ronaldo from signing for Manchester United would be the current manager Jose Mourinho, who reportedly did not get along with the multiple-time Ballon d'Or victor during their time at Real Madrid.

Manchester United have been linked with a sensational move to bring him back to the Premier League while a move to China or Major League Soccer in the United States has also been mooted.

Ronaldo, Portugal's all-time leading scorer, is the latest in a long line of soccer players in Spain - among them Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Neymar - to be caught up in cases over tax or transfers.

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. "There's no turning back", Ronaldo is quoted as saying by Marca.

"The first time round at Real Madrid they didn't see eye-to-eye".

Real have made Hazard one of their top targets this summer and would surely be interested in a swap should Ronaldo insist on a move.
