Irked by the tax evasion case, Ronaldo reportedly feels that the Real Madrid club doesn't protect him the way it should.

The story claims that Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid has been a source of speculation since he was accused of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities.

As well as Bayern, he has been linked with former club Manchester United, Paris St Germain and a move to the United States or China.

And it is understood he was unhappy at the lack of protection offered to him by Real Madrid in the aftermath of the incident - despite the club backing him publicly.

Perez assured the fans that the Portugal global would be honouring his contract with Real Madrid while insisting that he would contact the star striker only after the conclusion of Portugal's Confederations Cup campaign.

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.

Ronaldo scored 42 goals and assisted a further 12 strikes in 46 games for the Madrid club last season.

It is well known that Zidane's word means a lot to Ronaldo as he was the only person who managed to convince the striker to accept reduced playing time for Los Blancos last season. "The only thing I know is that he feels mistreated by the media". "Ronaldo is in a major tournament with his country and until that is over I can not talk to him", goal.com quoted Perez as saying.

"I am not a saint, but I am also not a devil like many people think I am".

But "since his arrival in Spain in 2009 until 2014 for which he declares 5.6 million euros, he hadn't declared any income from image rights which looks like a covering up of these revenues, this is what prompted the tax investigations and inspections", Gestha president Carlos Cruzado told AFP.
