Completely outraged by the complaint from the Prosecutor's Office, which accuses him of defrauding 14.7 million euros from the Treasury, Cristiano Ronaldo allegedly wants to leave Spain.
The decision would be irreversible and has apparently already been communicated to Real Madrid's president, Florentino Perez.
"Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave Spain," was the resounding headline from Friday's A Bola newspaper.
The Portuguese daily had already intimated that Real were going to receive an offer of 180 million euros from either Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain or Monaco for the player.
All would be willing to "lose their heads for the best player in the world."
Regarding the alleged fraud, Ronaldo had assured a journalist of Deportes Cuatro that he has "a clear conscience" despite the furore that has erupted.
Real also showed their unconditional support through a statement, in which they declared that they were "absolutely convinced of the innocence" of the Portuguese.
"He has always shown since his arrival to Real Madrid C.F, in July 2009, a clear will to fulfil all his tax obligations," said the statement.
