Do you think Cristiano Ronaldo is serious about leaving Real Madrid?

Real Madrid have reportedly slapped a €150 million price tag on Cristiano Ronaldo who looks set to leave the club in the summer.

Ronaldo is the latest football superstar to come under scrutiny for tax evasion after Lionel Messi was handed a 2.1-million-euro fine a year ago for avoiding paying taxes on part of the income he earned from image rights via companies in Belize, Britain, Switzerland and Uruguay.

Reports have claimed that Ronaldo wants to leave Spain having been embroiled in a tax evasion controversy.

Ramon Calderon, the man who brought Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid from Manchester, says that changing the player's mind about leaving will be very hard.

The former Real president was equally dismissive of the idea that Ronaldo could leave Real for China, arguing that the Portugal worldwide has plenty more to offer in Europe.

"I have made a decision".

Sky Sports suggest United are not confident of striking a deal for Ronaldo, as they report that the Old Trafford club expect their former No.7 to resolve his difficulties in Spain and remain at Real Madrid.

United will reportedly pay £175 million as well as David De Gea in order to sign Ronaldo and beat off interest from PSG.

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". "At this moment, he wants to leave", the source told the BBC.

The four-time World Footballer of the Year has helped Real win the Champions League three times and La Liga twice.

The Portugal global, who is now away at the Confederations Cup, is understood to have informed the La Liga champions of his desire to leave during the transfer window in order to seek a fresh challenge.
