Christiano Ronaldo Expressly States His Desire To Leave Madrid, Here's Why
Cristiano Ronaldo has declared his intentions to leave Real Madrid because he no longer wants to play in Spain.
The reason for this is simply as a result of the degenerate treatment he receives from Spanish tax authorities, and he has made it clear to Real Madrid that he wants to move away from the club.
Spanish prosecutors accused Ronaldo of avoiding £14.7m in tax – a charge he completely denies.
The Portugal captain is facing allegations from Madrid’s regional state prosecutor of four counts of tax fraud relating to image rights payments.
The four-time Ballon d’Or winner spoke briefly when quizzed on the subject by reporters following a training session with Portugal on Wednesday, saying he had a “clear conscience”.
Ronaldo, 32, signed a new five-year contract last November which means he is contracted to Real until 2021, but has previously stated a desire to return to Manchester United at some point in the future.
