Ronaldo wants to leave Spain

Cristiano Ronaldo news

Ronaldo has been the focal point of the Real Madrid attack since 2009

Real Madrid and Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is said to be looking for a new club and feels hard done by following recent allegations of tax fraud, which is a dominating topic in Spanish media. 

BBC sources are reporting that Ronaldo strongly denies the allegations of defrauding the Spanish authorities to a value of £13 million and is "very sad and really upset" by the suggestions. 

Since joining from Manchester United in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo has become one of the biggest names in world football, winning everything that there is to win and scoring huge amounts of goals, including becoming the Champions League's all-time top scorer. 

Ronaldo still has four years to run on his Real Madrid contract, which includes a staggering one billion Euro release clause. He may force a move away from the club in the coming weeks, however, with the source stating that "He doesn't want to stay in Spain. At this moment, he wants to leave."

Any team would want to sign Cristiano Ronaldo, but it is believed that Manchester United are the current favourites to sign their former player. Aside from the Premier League, Paris Saint-Germain are said to be serious contenders to sign the Portugal captain. 

A number of Chinese Super League clubs have the financial backing to afford Ronaldo and pay his salary, but at this time it is unlikely that he will opt for a move to China instead of staying in Europe.
