Pepe encourages Cristiano Ronaldo to pick Paris Saint Germain over Manchester United

Ronaldo has helped Real win the UEFA Champions League thrice, scoring twice in last month's final.

The reigning victor of the Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award has been "outraged" by what he feels is unfair treatment by Spanish tax authorities, making him determined to quit the club and the country.

United were played by Ronaldo four years ago, and there is apprehension within the club that it may happen all over again if they pursue him this summer.

Man Utd are reportedly putting together a stunning offer to Real Madrid in order to prise both Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata to Manchester.

"I am leaving Real Madrid", Marca claim Ronaldo told his Portuguese colleagues.

Barcelona's Neymar and Lionel Messi have also fallen into that same net in Spain, with Messi eve convicted of tax fraud, and Ronaldo, enraged by being the latest footballer to be targeted, is looking to leave the country.

Any Chinese club wanting to sign Ronaldo, for say £200m, would also have to pay £200m into a national fund to develop young Chinese players, bringing the total cost of the transfer to £400m - before wages are taken into account.

England play their last group match against Australia, which would be a do-or-die match for the Steve Smith-led side, on June 10. England captain Eoin Morgan: "Our batting performance was probably par or below par - so pretty average".

Manchester United have been put on red alert after reports that Cristiano Ronaldo has indicated a desire to leave Real Madrid.

Paper Round's view: Whilst it doesn't seem likely that Conte will just walk away from Chelsea, the board would probably be wise to give him a signing or two in the near future, particularly if United do press ahead and sign Ronaldo.

Club CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was quite clear on Bayern's stance, saying: "We are accustomed to speculating intensively on possible ins and outs during the transfer period".

Florentino Perez will remain Real Madrid president until 2021 after no candidates ran against him.

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

Ronaldo, sold by United to Real for £80 million in 2009, made all the right noises about a return to Old Trafford in 2013.

Ronaldo is rumoured to have demanded a move from Madrid after Spanish prosecutors accused the former Manchester United man of defrauding the state of £13million in taxes.
