Reported Ronaldo link with Bayern is hoax of the day, says club

Posted June 20, 2017

Last week, a Spanish state prosecutor accused Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud from 2011-14 which totaled about $16.5 million.

Only two weeks ago, he helped Real win their 12th European Cup, scoring twice in a 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff.

The Sunday World's back page exclusive last weekend (below) revealing United manager Jose Mourinho would not prioritise an audacious move for the former has now been backed up by similar reports on Yahoo Sport and a host of UK newspapers on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Perez hinted his club may make a move to sign Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappé this summer, as he suggested "all the best players come to Real Madrid".

As such, the forward has made clear his position to Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, and is now "determined" to leave Spain.

Zidane called Ronaldo at the weekend to persuade him to stay with the Champions League winners, only to be told that "In Spain I am treated like a criminal".

Manchester United are set to offer a staggering £175million and goalkeeper David De Gea as part of the deal to lure Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

An entire report about Manchester United, Real Madrid and a much-talked-about transfer that doesn't mention you know who. This could be stunt in order for Ronaldo to get a pay bump from Real; we've seen numerous players do that before, including United captain Wayne Rooney. La Liga, three Champions League titles and three more Balon d'Or, as well as global honours at last year's European Championship. As for what Real would expect to receive in return for selling Ronaldo, Metro says "a €150m (£131m) bid could be enough". He also said he needed to speak to the Portuguese but, with the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation under way, now was not a good time. However, one thing that could kill the deal would be if it drags on for too long.

Bayern President Uli Hoeness has pledged a big-name signing in the close season and Italian media had reported in recent days the German champions were interested in Ronaldo.
