Real Madrid chief Florentino Perez 'not contemplating' Cristiano Ronaldo exit

Posted June 26, 2017

Luis Figo says "nobody is indispensable" in the Real Madrid team - and that includes Cristiano Ronaldo.

A €120m bid has been discussed between PSG and Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes as the former Sporting CP man plots his next career move should he leave Madrid.

"The Spanish government in turn, through the tax department, issued a certificate in which it attested that he regularised his position and was in compliance with all his tax obligations". That same report reveals a prosecutor said he did not declare income from the use of his lucrative image rights in order to get an "illicit benefit". But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said.

Ronaldo's future has been a source of intense speculation over the past week after it emerged the 32-year-old forward informed Real Madrid of his desire to quit the Spanish capital.

On Tuesday, June 20, Spanish online newspaper El Confidencial reported that Ronaldo will testify in court on the tax allegations on July 31.

The complaint was quickly followed by reports that Ronaldo has chose to leave Madrid ahead of next season following his tax problems, but Perez is adamant the prolific forward will only be on the move for a huge transfer fee.

Pepe says his Portugal and Real Madrid team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo can handle the pressure of the tax-evasion scandal clouding his club future, ahead of Wednesday's Confederations Cup clash against hosts Russian Federation.

"Ronaldo is a Real player and will continue to be so as far as we are concerned", Perez told Marca sports daily yesterday.

But the club's president Florentino Perez insisted yesterday that Ronaldo will be staying at Real Madrid and no offer has been received to tempt him away.

"Tomorrow we have a very important game with Russia", Santos said with a pained expression when asked about Ronaldo.

But Perez rejected those claims.

"However I hope that the situation will be solved soon, we dont' want Cristiano to go".
