Cristiano Ronaldo is angry s and badly hurt but Real Madrid president Florentino Perez believes the Portuguese star will remain at the club.
Ronaldo has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain in the midst of the tax fraud allegations – which the player has denied – that he defrauded Spanish tax authorities out of €14.7million.
The 32-year-old has helped Portugal into the Confederations Cup semi-finals, as they plan for a crucial tie against Chile on Wednesday.
Perez insists he is unconcerned in the midst of reports linking Ronaldo, who is contracted to Madrid till 2021, with an exit regardless of admitting that the forward was hurt.
Florentino Perez speaking to esRadio on Tuesday “Cristiano has a contract with Madrid,”
What we know is that he told a colleague that he is angry and it was published in A Bola. I haven’t spoken with him.
“He is angry. He is a man of integrity and has fulfilled his duties. There are many people who have wanted to hurt him with taxes and other topics and he feels it.
“We are delighted that he is in Madrid. If you believe that you will continue on this radio [show] I believe that Cristiano will also stay. I have spoken with [Ronaldo’s agent Jorge] Mendes about him.”
