No offer received for Cristiano Ronaldo, says Real Madrid president Florentino Perez

“I want to talk with him”, the long-serving Real president told Onda Cero.According to Portuguese daily A Bola, the 32-year-old, who is currently on global duty with Portugal for the Confederations Cup, has been left angered at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and now wishes to leave the country. “Ronaldo is a lot more powerful and more important than all of us who are here”, he said.”I still haven’t spoken to Cristiano Ronaldo”.Perez said Ronaldo is bothered by the way some media “treat him like a criminal”, adding that he is honorable and professional.Perez’s radio interview came hours after the 70-year-old businessman was reelected to a fifth four-year term as Madrid’s president.Manchester United have so far made no comment on reports they are interested in buying back the player for an estimated 200 million euros, on top of the release fee.The frenzy of speculation began soon after Ronaldo was accused last week of a 14.7 million euro tax evasion through offshore companies. “There is no turning back”.Italy’s “Gazzetta dello Sport” had speculated that Bayern is set to swoop for Ronaldo so he can link up with the German club’s former Real coach Carlo Ancelotti.Since extending his contract in November until 2021, Ronaldo is according to Forbes the highest paid sports star in the world with $93 million (83m euro) in 2016-2017.”We’re used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows”, he said.”But now, in the case of Cristiano Ronaldo, we want to clarify once and for all that this rumour has no basis and must be referred to the realm of the fable”. He has led Madrid to back-to-back Champions League titles and its first Spanish league in five seasons this year, and helped Portugal to win last year’s European Championship.
