Perez to hold talks with want-away Ronaldo

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez plans to hold talks with Cristiano Ronaldo in order to settle the player's future.

Ronaldo reportedly wants to leave Spain and is keen to return to former club Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.

The player is angry after Spanish tax authorities recently accused him of tax evasion.



Speaking to a Spanish radio station, Perez said that so far there have been no offers for any of Madrid’s star players, including Ronaldo, Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez, adding that he would hold clear-the-air talks with the Portuguese star when he returns from the Confederations Cup.

"I have not spoken with Cristiano [since the Champions League final]," Perez said. "I've heard everything through the newspapers.

"Life gives you unexpected problems and you must find solutions.

"Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club. Ronaldo is a lot more powerful and more important than all of us who are here."

Perez added that he was sure that Ronaldo’s tax affairs were all above board.


"I am sure that Cristiano compiled with all tax rules," he said. "There must be some confusion which will be cleared up.

"All I know is that Cristiano is angry at the way he has been treated by the media."
