As for Mourinho, Manchester United 54-year-old Portuguese coach, he stands accused of two counts of tax fraud while he coached Real Madrid from 2010 to 2013. My dedication and commitment will always be there as I seek to maintain the club's values and secure as many pieces of silverware as possible.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing, while Real Madrid released a statement saying they had "full confidence" in their player and were "absolutely convinced that (he) will prove his total innocence".

Ronaldo is accused of defrauding Spanish authorities of €14.7m (£12.95m) between 2011 and 2014 and will now testify on July 31, reports The Independent.

He is the latest high-profile figure from football to be subjected to an investigation by the Spanish tax office, following the likes of Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar, Radamel Falcao, Javier Mascherano and Angel di Maria. Perez said in an interview with Onda Cero (via The Sun).

"The last time I talked to him was after the Champions League final in Cardiff".

Of course, the stories surrounding Ronaldo's future were treated with plenty of suspicion and cynicism as it was believed that he was simply stalling for time until Real officials made the taxman problems disappear.

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

And according to Spanish sports daily Marca, Ronaldo has told his teammates, "I'm leaving Real".

Ronaldo, who has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, is said to now earn around £365,000 a week at Real Madrid and the same article claims that Manchester United would be willing to match those wages.

Speculation is ripe that Ronaldo wants Madrid to bear some of the burden of the fine and was trying to put pressure on the club.

"Nobody at Real wants him to leave", Florentino said.

His expression to leave Madrid has opened potential moves to Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

This Wednesday, the French newspaper L'Equipe published on their front page that PSG will be in wait just in case Cristiano Ronaldo finally decides to leave Spain.

Real Madrid created 183 chances in the Champions League last season.
