Why a fairy-tale Cristiano Ronaldo return is still on the cards

Why a fairy-tale Cristiano Ronaldo return is still on the cards

"I would put my hands in the fire for [Ronaldo's] character and integrity, as a person and as an athlete", he said.

Ronaldo has been linked with a return to United where he would play under Jose Mourinho, and although Calderon said his relationship with the manager isn't the best the lure of Manchester could be the deciding factor.

He is so upset at being accused of tax avoidance he wants to leave Spain.

The 32-year-old has been accused of defrauding the Spanish authorities out of £13m in tax, and the situation has become more tense as he believes that the club have distanced themselves from him rather than look to protect and offer him help.

A report from Spanish publication Don Balon states that City have contacted Ronaldo, who of course has strong ties to city rivals Manchester United.

"The club has been very important in his career".

That has prompted speculation linking him with Paris St Germain and Manchester United amongst others, but Silva, who completed a big-money switch to AC Milan from Porto earlier this month, insists the four-time Champions League victor remains focused on his country's upcoming matches.

When the news first broke in Portuguese media that Ronaldo had made an "irreversible" decision to quit #Real Madrid this summer, there was widespread disbelief and many did not quite take the story seriously. PSG have always been interested in attracting the European Cup victor, and his addition could finally see the Parisians win the Champions League.

Absent that franchise tag or a similar mechanism, the only recourse for an NBA GM is to try and build his own super team. Now eligible for a five-year, $205 million maximum extension with the Warriors , he'll be a free agent this summer.

"He delayed his move to Madrid for a year because Alex Ferguson was like a father to him".

"Alvaro Morata is not happy at Real Madrid", he told The Sun when asked about the ongoing speculation.

A source has confirmed that the Portuguese worldwide is unhappy with some of the treatment he has received, particularly using the star player as an example.

Cristiano Ronaldo could be on his way out of Real Madrid this summer following his £13million tax evasion charge, according to reports in Portugal.

Cristiano Ronaldo making a fairytale return to the club where he made his name might have seemed far-fetched a few months ago but now it is a genuine possibility.

"I am sure he will stay in Europe".

"I don't see him playing in China or the Middle East".

He secured a new five-year contract with the La Liga title holders in November 2016 and said on June 1: "I said when I signed my latest contract that it would be my penultimate and that I would play on until I was 41".
