Ronaldo 'told Fergie he wanted to leave' six weeks ago

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates during the Real Madrid celebration the day after winning the 12th UEFA Champions League Final at Casa de Correos

However, that hasn't stopped the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United from continually trying to lure him from the Bernabeu. The Red Devils are willing to offer £175 million cash + David De Gea to Real Madrid for the Portugues superstar according to the Mirror!

Given that Ronaldo is now away on global duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup, no decision is likely to arrive on his future any time soon.

Would Ronaldo really push that off over alleged tax evasion and anger at Real Madrid's support?

Real Madrid have made it clear they will not keep Cristiano Ronaldo at the club against his will and are reportedly prepared to sell him this summer.

Cope subsequently reported that Ronaldo has spoken to Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane about the situation and confirmed to his club boss that he does want to quit La Liga.

Spain's AS reported that Ronaldo had chose to quit Real two months ago, before the Champions League final victory, telling his agent Jorge Mendes and other close associates that he felt "badly treated and unjustly judged".

United are expected to be at the front of the queue for Ronaldo, who they originally signed from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.

It emerged on Friday that the 32-year-old wants to leave Madrid following an investigation into his tax affairs by Spanish authorities.

Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid, according to reports in his native Portugal, in a decision that has been described as "irreversible".

Ronaldo has also expressed his frustration at being whistled by his own fans at Real.

Meanwhile, former Real president Ramon Calderon believes it will be hard to convince Ronaldo to stay if he is determined to leave.

The Portugal global has subsequently been linked with a return to former club Manchester United, having supposedly grown frustrated at the Bernabeu, but Tebas is hoping that the situation is defused by Ronaldo's charges proving to be unfounded.
