Cristiano Ronaldo's $102M 2009 Fee To Rise, Breaking Pogba Mark?

De Gea could still be used as a makeweight in any deal for Alvaro Morata or Cristiano Ronaldo with the Sunday Times recently claiming that United would discount De Gea's fee by £43m if they were able to get Morata as part of the deal.

Ronaldo is at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, playing for Portugal.

Ronaldo has denied any wrongdoing, and Madrid has issued a statement saying it believed the player was innocent.

Perez's latest four-year term has started as many of his previous ones have - with frenzied transfer speculation about which big-name players might arrive at the club and, perhaps more crucially in this instance as Ronaldo's future dominates the headlines, who might end up leaving.

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

Regional prosecutors have accused the Portugal captain of four crimes against Spain's exchequer, committed between 2011 and 2014 and which involve a tax fraud of 14,768,897 euros ($16,467,518), reports Efe.

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.

Earlier this month Manchester United reportedly told Real Madrid that they will not sell De Gea for less than £66million this summer.

Since extending his contract in November until 2021, Ronaldo is according to Forbes the highest paid sports star in the world with $93 million (€83m) in 2016-2017.

"As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours". The club - which also won La Liga last season - lead the way in the elite European competition with 12 trophies.
