Ballack expects Ronaldo to stay at Real Madrid

Ronaldo's representatives Gestifute have denied the accusation, while Madrid have said they are "absolutely convinced that our player Cristiano Ronaldo will prove his total innocence in this process".

There has been no interest from any club in Real Madrid's star player Cristiano Ronaldo, who has threatened to leave Spain after running into problems with tax authorities, according to club president Florentino Perez.

The prolific striker scored twice to fire Real to a 4-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League final earlier this month but his future at the club was thrown into doubt last week when Portuguese newspaper A Bola reported that he wanted to leave Spain after being accused of committing tax fraud.

Perez, who first held the position in 2000, won uncontested, the Spanish and European champions announced on Monday.

Ronaldo was named man of the match in his country's Confederations Cup game with Mexico but failed to attend the press conference which comes with the award, speaking only about the game in a brief interview with Federation Internationale de Football Association.

"I still haven't spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo".

Asked about potential clubs Ronaldo could join, Perez said: "I'm not contemplating Ronaldo leaving".

At the moment, the whole saga is unclear as new teams get linked with the Real Madrid man every single day. "That's why I will speak with him when he gets back and see what's up", Perez told Spanish radio Onda Cero late Monday.

Ronaldo was a world-record signing of intent from United after Perez returned as president eight years ago, the forward being part of a £225million summer spending spree that also saw the likes of Kaka, Karim Benzema and Xabi Alonso move to Real.
