'Outraged' Cristiano Ronaldo might quit Real Madrid over tax treatment

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.

The undoubted star attraction, Ronaldo arrives in Russian Federation looking to round off another stellar season after leading Real Madrid to a first La Liga title in five years.

The BBC later also reported that an "upset" Ronaldo wanted out of Madrid, citing a source close to the player.

The shocking news was backed up hours later on the website of newspaper Marca, which is viewed as Madrid's mouthpiece.

Still, this wouldn't be a decision based on sentiment alone, as United's Europa League win means Ronaldo would also be able to continue playing in the Champions League, with the aim of adding to the 105 goals he already has in the competition.

Like Pepe recently, Ronaldo believes Madrid could have done more to protect him in the ongoing case, which claims he has failed to pay €14.7 million in taxes during his time at the Spanish side.

Hertha were quick to open up their doors to four-time Ballon d'Or victor Ronaldo with a playful offer posted on social media.

By now, it's common knowledge that Cristiano Ronaldo wants out of Real Madrid.

Following the tax allegations, Ronaldo posted a picture of himself with his fingers to his lips on Instagram with the caption: "Sometimes the best answer it's to be quiet".

While the players Alex Hunter can interact with depend on what team he joins, joining Real Madrid and talking to a player that's no longer part of the team would be rather immersion-breaking.

"I hope he hasn't chose to leave but if he has already made his mind up, it will be hard to change the situation". "Ronaldo wants to leave Spain", it read.

The Spanish paper writes that they are the "only two clubs who are able to afford Ronaldo".

The potential availability of the Portugal global, one of the most marketable players in the world, would alert a number of top clubs, plus big-spending Chinese Super League sides looking to make a statement.

Everyone instantly hit the insane button on social media as rumours about which club he might go to started buzzing around and Manchester United fans lost their shit at the thought of Ronaldo coming back.
