Cristiano Ronaldo to testify in tax fraud case July 31 - court

Eight years on, Ronaldo has scored a club-record 406 goals in 394 appearances. "If he's angry it's because he feels unjustly treated", he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

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

"I know Cristiano, he's a good guy as a professional and as a person". It is very odd.

Following the tax allegations, Cristiano Ronaldo put out a lengthy and strongly worded statement defending himself. "He will tell us what has happened".

The interview was Perez's first comment on Ronaldo since Portuguese sports daily A Bola reported on Friday that Ronaldo was considering leaving Spain after a state prosecutor accused him of four counts of tax fraud totaling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million) in unpaid taxes.

Ronaldo has denied the charges.

IBTimes UK earlier revealed that Ronaldo wants to leave Real and he has already informed the club of his decision.

Another player linked with a move away from Madrid is James Rodriguez after a frustrating stop-start campaign.

The 70-year-old has overseen a period of continued success at Madrid, who claimed their third Champions League in four seasons in 2016-17.

In addition to this, his club teammates Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez have been linked with a move away from Real, with the Red Devils keen on signing the 24-year-old Spain worldwide.

He said that Ronaldo had clearly done nothing wrong and Perez was appalled that the "presumption of innocence is not respected" by the media who have branded the played a delinquent. It hasn't finished yet and I don't want to disturb the Portuguese team. "The truth is that we have great goalkeepers".

"We are calm and we have to think about the next game".

"We do not have to sound the alarm".

The Spanish prosecutor says the Real Madrid forward knowingly used a business structure to hide his image rights income in Spain between 2011 and 2014.

He now is the coach of English club Manchester United.

While the club were always understood to be confident of keeping the Spain goalkeeper, there were growing reports of a move to Real - a club he came close to joining in 2015, with Keylor Navas going the other way.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is now with Portugal at the Confederations Cup.

"And neither have we made any offers for anybody". I will talk with him when the Confederations Cup has finished.

"Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club". Right now he is a Madrid player.

'Something has definitely affected him.
