Cristiano Ronaldo transfer: Shaka Hislop expects star to remain at Real Madrid

Reuters

It was billed as Florentino Perez addressing the Ronaldo issue, but when Real Madrid's newly re-elected president gave a round of media interviews, the content was much the same - effectively "I don't know what is going on".

It will be the third term for the 70-year-old construction magnate who has spent 15 years at the helm of Europe's most successful club - 2000-2006 and since 2009.

Spain's prosecutor's office in Madrid filed a tax fraud lawsuit against the Portugal forward last week, but newly-elected Real president Perez has described the entire situation as "very strange".

Chelsea could enter the race to capture Cristiano Ronaldo, as Marco Asensio considers a swift exit from Real Madrid.

The Sunday World's back page exclusive last weekend (below) revealing United manager Jose Mourinho would not prioritise an audacious move for the former has now been backed up by similar reports on Yahoo Sport and a host of UK newspapers on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo could be back at Old Trafford next season, claims the Sunday Times, after the Portuguese striker made a decision to sever all ties with Spain.

The one thing that might stop Ronaldo from signing for Manchester United would be the current manager Jose Mourinho, who reportedly did not get along with the multiple-time Ballon d'Or victor during their time at Real Madrid.

Now, the rest of the league knows what players could be headed to Vegas and who will stay with their current teams. Teams can either go seven forwards , three defenseman, and a goalie or they can go any eight skaters and a goalie.

The topic of Ronaldo against Barcelona's Lionel Messi has always been discussed, but Pele has stated that Ronaldo is "the best player, the best scorer and the best forward" in the world.

That is the figure which is circulating in football and might tempt, in particular, Paris Saint-Germain to make such an offer, while Manchester United remain interested and could also go that high.

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

"We're used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows", Rummenigge said in a statement.

"As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours".

Candidates must now have been a member of Real for over 20 years, compared to the old requirement of 10 years, and have a personal fortune of over 75 million euros ($84 million). He scored 42 goals in all competitions and played a key role in helping his club win the Champions League and the La Liga.
