Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo has told President Florentino Perez that he wants to leave the club according to the Portuguese Sports daily A Bola.
The journals claim that this is in response to the charges held against him for alleged tax evasion that totals €14.7M.
According to the reports in the publication Ronaldo’s decision is irreversible and that the player himself has told President Florentino Perez of his intentions.
Ronaldo is also thought to have felt let down by Real Madrid’s support since the allegations were revealed earlier this week against him.
All this, of course, comes in a week where reports have suggested that Los Blancos has received a bid for €180M for the Portuguese superstar with both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United understood to be ready to take this advantage to secure his signature.
Ronaldo shot to stardom at Old Trafford and has always stated that he would one day like to return to the club.
With Jose Mourinho now at the helm, that possibility could become a step nearer reality and as the journal suggests, this could be the largest “bomb on the transfer market in the history of the game”.
