CRISTIANO RONALDO avoided questions about his future last night as rumours the Portugal star wants to leave Real Madrid intensify.

Do Bayern Munich have a grudge against Cristiano Ronaldo? "It starts with the media".

The 32-year-old attacker is reportedly seeking an exit from Santiago Bernabeu after prosecutors filed a complaint in which they accused Ronaldo of a "voluntary" and "conscious" breach of his tax obligations, amounting to a figure of €14.7million (A$21.5 million). Get the app and get the game.

While Ronaldo's representatives have refuted the allegations, they have not denied the reports the player wants to leave Spain, fuelling what promises to be the biggest transfer saga of the summer.

Onda Cero say Perez will "give his version of the "Ronaldo case" in an interview with the Spanish radio station late on Monday evening, while an event marking his re-election will be held at 6.30pm United Kingdom time at the Bernabeu's presidential box.

Reigning Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award victor Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Manchester United having been "outraged" by what he feels is unfair treatment by Spanish tax authorities, making him determined to leave the country. "He will tell us what has happened.(.) The only thing I know is that he feels mistreated by the media".


In quotes published on Marca's website, Perez said: "We have built a legendary team with the best players from Spain and the world, but also with many players from our youth academy".

A four-time Ballon d'Or victor, the 32-year-old Ronaldo is the top European soccer player.

Perez's radio interview came hours after the 70-year-old businessman was reelected to a fifth four-year term as Madrid's president.


A judge will now decide whether there are grounds to take the matter to court. He has won three Champions Leagues, two La Liga titles and two King's Cups in his eight years in the Spanish capital.
