CR7 does U-turn on future in Madrid

CR7 does U-turn on future in Madrid

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says the club are not considering selling Cristiano Ronaldo, but admits he has not spoken to the player since Real's Champions League final victory over Juventus earlier this month.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo will reportedly testify in court on July 31 regarding his alleged tax fraud.

According to Sky sources, Ronaldo feels he has been singled out for disproportionate treatment after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of £12.8m.

Manchester United has already secured the signing of center back Victor Lindelof this summer and has a number of other transfer targets.

There have also been suggestions Pepe has been advising his club and worldwide colleague, urging him to leave Madrid for a new challenge, with Paris Saint-Germain and Ronaldo's former club Manchester United thought to be interested.

Ronaldo, on Confederations Cup duty in Russian Federation with Portugal, is reportedly furious over a tax probe into the off shore accounts dealing with his image rights, and has reportedly vowed to leave Spain.

Following the tax allegations, Cristiano Ronaldo put out a lengthy and strongly worded statement defending himself.

"Wish and your dreams will come true", might work in a flawless world, but Ronaldo will know just because he wants to go back to Manchester United, his former club, it doesn't mean he will be able to.

However, Perez claimed that he had not been told by the 24-year-old that he wants to go. We have not received any offer for Cristiano, nor for [Álvaro] Morata [the striker wanted by United] or James [Rodríguez]. I haven't talked to his father, but he is a Madrid player, we're happy with him and no one is thinking about him leaving.

Ferdinand played alongside Ronaldo at Old Trafford between 2003 and 2009, with the pair helping the Red Devils land three Premier League titles, one FA Cup and the Champions League.
