The English giants are emerging as the favorites to land the talent of the Portuguese superstar, who announced his desire to leave Spain after being accused of tax evasion to the tune of $16.5 million.

"When united, this club is practically indestructible".

There are a few problems that might arise over this proposed transfer, which has been talked about ever since Ronaldo made the decision to leave the European champions following tax fraud allegations from Spanish authorities.

Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid?

Ronaldo is now on duty for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation which ends on July 2.

There is still a chance that Perez could comment on Ronaldo's situation on Monday evening during an interview he is scheduled to conduct with Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

"What has happened he will tell us".

According to A Bola, the four-time Ballon d'Or victor will quit Spain in outrage at the country's tax authorities and dismayed by Real's subsequent response.

Madrid's long-time president said the club had not received any transfer offers for Ronaldo.

Man Utd are still in talks with Real Madrid for Morata.

And among the first issues he will have to deal with is Ronaldo, who he bought in 2009 from Manchester United for a record €94m. There is nothing Real Madrid have to do now.

The forward had helped United win three Premier League titles and the Champions League in his six years at the club, and had also won the Ballon d'Or.

In quotes carried on Marca's website, Perez said: "I have not spoken to him".

Portuguese newspapers have listed Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Monaco among the potential suitors for the Portugal captain and that they might table an offer of 180 million euros ($201 million). While their relationship did not end on the best terms, Mourinho would surely know how to maximize Ronaldo's talents once again.

It is understood, however, any outlay on Ronaldo would not include the image rights the 31-year-old sold to Singaporean businessman Peter Lim, who owns La Liga club Valencia, back in 2015.

Ronaldo denies the claims but his anger at them has led to him wanting to move away from Spain.
