Cristiano Ronaldo will talk to Real President about his Future

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says he will talk to Cristiano Ronaldo about his future after the Confederations Cup.

Ronaldo has said that he wants to leave Spain after tax fraud accusations against him.

The forward is currently with the Portugal squad in Russia, signed a new five-year contract in November 2016, but has been linked with a return to Manchester United.

“The only thing I can say is Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player,” said Perez, who was re-elected on Monday.

Spanish prosecutors have accussed the Portugese star of defrauding the authorities of millions of euros in tax, which he has denied.

“Obviously something has happened, something has affected him, his credibility,” Perez told Spanish radio station Onda Cero. “I’m sure he will tell us and we will see.

“It’s no coincidence that he’s in a very important tournament, the Confederations Cup. It hasn’t finished yet and I don’t want to disturb the Portuguese team.”

Perez says Ronaldo, who has also been linked with a move to Paris St-Germain, is not motivated by money.

He said: “He just wants to be the best player in the world. If Cristiano wants to leave Real Madrid, it won’t be for money.”

Perez said he is yet to receive an offer for Ronaldo – or striker Alvaro Morata or midfielder James Rodriguez, both of whom have also been linked with United.

“We want to keep all our players next season, including James,” he added.
