Perez rubbishes talk of Man United deal for Morata

However, upon his re-election yesterday, Perez said: “There have been no offers for Ronaldo by anyone – Morata and James as well”.

Perez, a 70-year-old construction magnate, was elected unopposed Monday for a third term in charge of Europe’s most successful club.

Outraged at being unfairly treated by Spanish tax authorities, Ronaldo had earlier expressed his intentions to leave Real Madrid and Spain.

“Cristiano is playing the Confederations Cup”.

Cristiano Ronaldo has instructed his agent to try and secure him a sensational transfer back to Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

Press Association Sport understands Ronaldo feels he has been singled out for disproportionate treatment after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of 14.7million euros (£12.8m).

Perez also confirmed that the 32-year-old has a release clause of £1billion.

There has been speculation that Ronaldo is trying to put pressure on Real so that they will bear some of the burden of an eventual fine for tax evasion as Barcelona did for Lionel Messi.

Portuguese newspapers have listed Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Monaco among the potential suitors for the Portugal captain and that they might table an offer of 180 million euros ($201 million). “As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours”.

However his opponents criticised reforms in the club statutes which have toughened criteria for aspiring candidates.

To run for Real Madrid’s presidency, candidates must have been a member of the club for 20 years and show they have at least Euro 75 million in a Spanish bank.

Costa Rica goalkeeper Navas was criticised at several points last season for unconvincing displays which cost Real points leading to reports in the Spanish media that the club would make another move for de Gea.
