Real president Perez 'not contemplating' Ronaldo departure

Ronaldo is furious after Spanish authorities have accused him of trying to dodge multi-million tax payments.

Subsequent reports have suggested that Ronaldo wants to make a move back to United, eight years after he left the club to move to Madrid in a world record £80m deal.

It remains to be seen whether Madrid would be open to such a deal but the Telegraph are citing a report from the Sun that claims Ronaldo is desperate to return to his former club. "There is no turning back".

Re-elected Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has vowed to solve Cristiano Ronaldo's troubles and has described the uncertainty surrounding his future as "very strange".

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

Perez says Ronaldo, who has also been linked with a move to Paris St-Germain, is not motivated by money.

With Ronaldo they remain cautious in the knowledge that the story could quickly end if Real appease the 32-year-old. "No doubt. As I have mentioned, I think that today there is no doubt the best player, the best scorer and the best forward is Cristiano Ronaldo".

"The last time that I talked with Cristiano was in Cardiff, after the game". However, Ronaldo was able to show up in the last month of the season, and that played a crucial role in Real Madrid's ability to become Spanish and European champion.

Cristiano Ronaldo is now playing with Portugal in the Confederations Cup but the transfer rumors continue to swirl of a possible departure from Real Madrid.

However, a statement from Ronaldo's management company Gestifute insisted the company, Tollin, which was established during Ronaldo's time with Manchester United, has acted in accordance with British and Spanish tax laws.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is set to speak about Cristiano Ronaldo's future on Monday evening as speculation continues to mount over a possible Manchester United return.
