Cristiano Ronaldo Seeks Real Madrid Exit After Tax Accusations 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jun 16, 2017 2:52 pm

Cristiano Ronaldo would like to leave Real Madrid this summer after accusations of tax evasion were made against him.

Ronaldo is accused of not paying £14.7 million on image rights earned between 2011 and 2014.

The prosecutor claims Ronaldo "took advantage of a business structure created in 2010 to hide from fiscal authorities income generated in Spain from image rights."

Real Madrid is trying to persuade Ronaldo to remain at the club. Ronaldo signed an extension through 2021 only in November. Ronaldo has said on several occasions that he would like to retire at Real Madrid.

Whenever there has been speculation of Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid, he has been linked most prominently to Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
