This Monday, China’s transfer window will open, we expect many clubs to be looking to sign Ronaldo with record transfer fees being set.
With Ronaldo’s future at the club uncertain, Real Madrid are now rethinking their decision on Morata and according to AS, they are considering putting negotiations with Manchester United on hold.
Why does he want to leave?
Ronaldo and Zidane will reportedly hold further talks at the end of the Confederations Cup, but, for now, the player is keeping his own counsel after not appearing at the post-match press conference following Portugal’s opening game of the tournament.
Ronaldo, who denies the claims, has been accused of evading €14.7 million (£13m) in tax.
Sources close to the payer have briefed media outlets that he wants to leave for footballing reasons.
The EURO 2016 victor has helped Real secure the Champions League three times, scoring twice in last month’s final as they became the first club to retain the title, and he became only the second player to score in three finals.
Yes – Ronaldo has angled for a move away from Madrid at least twice before. I was his last coach in Portugal when he was 18 years old.
What are the Spanish papers saying?
La Liga president Javier Tebas has admitted that potentially losing Cristiano Ronaldo this summer would be a “huge” blow for the division, but is hopeful of seeing the Real Madrid forward prove his tax-fraud innocence.
Ferguson was of course the man who brought Ronaldo to Manchester United in the summer of 2003, nurturing him from being a show pony into a world beating thoroughbred over the course of six trophy laden years.
Do people actually think he will go?
The 32-year-old former Manchester United winger is reportedly angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and wishes to leave the country, according to the front page of Portuguese daily A Bola yesterday.
Marca also reported that club captain Sergio Ramos had called Ronaldo to ask him to stay. However it is believed he does not want to return to Spain next season.
What is his most likely destination?
