"All I can say is that Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with Madrid".

Reigning Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award victor Ronaldo has been linked with a return to Manchester United having been "outraged" by what he feels is unfair treatment by Spanish tax authorities, making him determined to leave the country. But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said. "Ronaldo is in a major tournament with his country and until that is over I can not talk to him". "The only thing I know is that Cristiano is very angry with the treatment he has received in the press", he added.

Perez's radio interview came hours after the 70-year-old businessman was reelected to a fifth four-year term as Madrid's president.

Free-spending Paris St Germain have also been linked with a move for Ronaldo but it is United who look to be at the front of the queue for a player Bayern Munich have denied interest in, with Jose Mourinho's men reported to be preparing a record bid to bring the forward back to Old Trafford.
