Don't want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo: Bayern Munich

Four-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo sparked the biggest transfer saga of the summer last week when reports emerged that the Euro 2016 victor had decided he wanted to leave Real Madrid, and Spain all together, having been accused of tax fraud.

Zidane, who is well aware of the influence that Ronaldo has on the players at the club, also expressed his confidence that the problem would be resolved soon.

Cristiano Ronaldo looks increasingly likely to leave Real Madrid this summer, with the English Premier League looking like his probable destination.

Spanish prosecutors have filed a lawsuit against the player accusing him of defrauding tax authorities of 14.7 million euros ($16.39 million) by hiding his image rights income between 2011 and 2014.

Manchester United are ready to offer Real Madrid £175million plus David de Gea for the services of Cristiano Ronaldo, reports claim.

Following these allegations, the four-time Ballon d'Or victor posted a picture of himself with his fingers to his lips on Instagram with the caption: "Sometimes the best answer it's to be quiet".

"Ronaldo is a lot more powerful and more important than all of us who are here", he added.

United may have been told that Ronaldo is there for taking if they want him but whether they actually believe that to be the case is another matter. Real Madrid is one, and United, then Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern [Munich] and Juventus, but those teams would probably have to sell players. In the current ranking, Real Madrid ranks fourth while Ronaldo is sixth. I've heard about the Cristiano situation from what newspapers have written.

Florentino Perez will remain as Real Madrid president for another four years after no other candidates stepped forward to run against him.

Ronaldo, however, favours a return to return to United and has instructed his representative, fellow Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes, to do everything in his power to make it reality after ignoring pleas from Real boss Zinedine Zidane to reconsider his position.
