Real Madrid president: Cristiano Ronaldo’s situation ‘all very odd

Perez gave a strong hint that he will make moves to placate his star player, as he offered this defence of the Portuguese worldwide.

There is still a chance that Perez could comment on Ronaldo’s situation on Monday evening during an interview he is scheduled to conduct with Spanish radio station Onda Cero. “He will tell us what has happened.(.) The only thing I know is that he feels mistreated by the media”.

“I will speak to him after the Confederations Cup. It hasn’t finished yet and I don’t want to disturb the Portuguese team”. What I will say is that all must fulfill our obligations, but I have no doubt in Cristiano. We have not had an offer for Cristiano, ‘ he said.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho fears that Cristiano Ronaldo may be using the club to engineer himself a new deal at Real Madrid.

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has backed Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at the Bernabeu, despite reports suggesting that he wants out.

He added: “I am sure he will be one of the greats and we are following him”.

Why does Ronaldo want to leave?

And Perez vigorously backed the Portugal skipper, claiming he will be cleared of tax charges against his name and dismissing suggestions Ronaldo’s desire to leave could be remedied by the club picking up any potential fine.

He is accused of evading tax to the value of 14.7m euros (£13m; $16m) between 2011 and 2014. The Real Madrid ace denies all the charges and the paper says that the Portugal global has been “angered and saddened by the claim and the reporting of it in Spain“.

United aren’t the only club interested as Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are all also specifically mentioned in the report, but it’s the sentimental choice of returning to Man Utd which is seemingly leading the race at this stage.

“The clause for Cristiano is £1bn”.

Calderon was at Real when the club bought Ronaldo from the Red Devils in a then-world record £80m deal in 2009.

Ronaldo has helped Real win the UEFA Champions League thrice, scoring twice in last month’s final.

A two-time La Liga victor, his 285 goals in 265 league appearances mean he is second only to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi in that competition.

The Portuguese worldwide is now in Russian Federation competing for the European champions in the Confederations Cup. Talking but saying nothing.

The future of the Portugal global remains unclear after recent reports have claimed that he wants to leave the La Liga and Champions League winners.
