Ronaldo tax evasion: Portugal star hints at leaving Real Madrid

Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport on Sunday threw Bayern Munich into the mix, while British tabloids proposed Chelsea as a shock landing spot, adding to former club Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, with their financial clout, as likely suitors.

Man United are reportedly weighing up the idea of bringing Ronaldo back to Old Trafford and would, according to Marca, have to shell out a mammoth sum of £174.5m for his services.

"A Spanish state prosecutor accused Ronaldo of four counts of tax fraud from 2011-14 totaling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million)".

Calderon added: "I had the same situation with Manchester United when he chose to leave and I signed him".

Madrid issued a statement saying that it was convinced Ronaldo "will demonstrate his complete innocence".

Over the past 48 hours, it has emerged that Donnarumma will not sign a new contract at the San Siro and that Ronaldo allegedly wants to leave the Bernabeu during the summer.

"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".

"He says I want to leave and that's it, as a president you can't do anything other than let him go and get the best possible deal".

"The club has been very important in his career".

Which clubs could afford Ronaldo? .

That has prompted speculation linking him with Paris St Germain and Manchester United amongst others, but Silva, who completed a big-money switch to AC Milan from Porto earlier this month, insists the four-time Champions League victor remains focused on his country's upcoming matches.

"I don't see him playing in China or the Middle East".

"I am sure he will stay in Europe", he said. He is not that type of player.

The 26-year-old told the official website of the Confederations Cup: "It goes without saying that he's a great player".
