BREAKING NEWS: Cristiano Ronaldo Wants To Leave Real Madrid (more pics)Huge news has come in this morning as according to reports in Portugal, Cristiano Ronaldo wants out at Real Madrid.
A Bola’s front page today runs a story that explains, in a shock turn of events, Ronaldo has informed Los Blancos he wants to leave the Bernabeu this summer.
The news stems from the ongoing lawsuit from Spanish prosecutors, who claim Ronaldo defrauded the authorities of €14.7 million in a three-year period between 2011 and 2014 in relation to his image rights.
As a result of the allegations, which the Portuguese forward strongly denies, it’s said that Ronaldo wants to leave Spain altogether despite signing a new and improved five-year contract back in November, as well as winning the Ballon d’Or, La Liga and the Champions League – the 4-1 victory over Juventus in Cardiff being his fourth success in Europe’s premier competition, Ronaldo’s decision is “irreversible”, it is claimed.
If reports are indeed true, inevitably several clubs across the world will be on red alert.
It was noted last week by Marca and AS that Real are bracing themselves for a whopping €200 million euros (£175 million) bid from an unnamed Chinese Super League team this summer.
The monumental offer on the table would comfortably make Ronaldo the highest paid athlete in sporting history, with the talk being that the club would be prepared to pay the four-time Ballon d’Or winner a whopping €120 million euros (£105 million) per year.
Should that proposal be legitimate and Ronaldo fancy swapping Spain for China, he would rake in a weekly salary of £2 million.
Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, Ronaldo’s former employers, are continually linked with the 32-year old superstar.
What do you make of the big news surrounding Ronaldo’s future? Do you call bullshit or can you believe that Ronaldo would want to leave Spain following the tax probe?
