Ronaldo attracting the headlines after report he might leave

Madrid were rocked on Friday when Portuguese newspaper A Bola claimed the 32-year-old no longer wanted to play in Spain amid scrutiny over his tax affairs, a story that sources close to the player have seemingly since confirmed to other worldwide news outlets. "At this moment, he wants to leave".

Ronaldo has helped Real win the Champions League three times, scoring twice in last month's final as they became the first club to retain the title and he only the second player to score in three different finals.

"The Guardian headline read: "'Outraged' Cristiano Ronaldo puts Manchester United on red alert", and its report led by saying: "Manchester United are watching the Cristiano Ronaldo show with renewed interest after the Real Madrid striker made it plain he is "outraged" at what he feels is unfair treatment by tax authorities and is now determined to leave Spain".

Spain's AS reported that Ronaldo had made a decision to quit Real two months ago, before the Champions League final victory, telling his agent Jorge Mendes and other close associates that he felt "badly treated and unjustly judged".

Ronaldo famously flirted with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi after PSG played at the Bernabeu in 2015 with a wink and an arm around the shoulder as he passed him in the media area.

Mark Ogden isn't overly convinced Cristiano Ronaldo will be leaving Real Madrid after recent reports suggesting otherwise.

"I try to listen to him and he explains things to me in the best way".

The 32-year-old will be limited to a few clubs to join if he is to leave the Spanish capital this summer.

As well as return to United, Ronaldo has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Calderon thinks a lucrative move outside of Europe is not an option at this stage of his career.

"He delayed his move to Madrid for a year because Ferguson was like a father to him. He has three or four more years to be a top, top player and he would like to keep winning titles, anywhere he goes".
