The last few days have suddenly gained a lot of interest. From the day that we were all informed about the fraud of the tax authorities in Spain by Cristiano Ronaldo who is summoned to pay a fine of EUR 14,5 million. Everything has changed. Almost every day we all try to find out what`s new about this case.
Cristiano Ronaldo of course is in Russia where he participates with the Portuguese National champion in 2016 in the Confederations Cup. The "Little World Cup" as it is called by many. According to the newspaper "A Bola" in Portugal, Cristiano energy wants to abandon Real Madrid maybe an "irreversible" decision. However, Madrid`s administration and especially its President, Florentino Pérez, who recently announced that he will remain in his leadership until 2022, is making great efforts to persuade the Portuguese superstar to continue to offer his services to the European Champion Real.
Besides, we should not forget that just last year the Real`s administration extended its contract until June 2021 with increased earnings. Money that may amount to EUR 40 million a year. Instead of the others he receives from his various advertisements.
Here, however, special analysts say that Real has a clause for anyone wanting to buy it that exceeds 200 million euros, while his agent, Jorge Mendes, is doing so because of many more. He states that the contract for the redemption of his contract exceeds 1 billion dollars!!!
The game seems to have gone well and Zinedine Zidane, who asked and spoke with Cristiano, as he lasts with great appreciation and admiration for his French coach. He pointed out to him that "Real could win a lot more by staying with her, because there is the mentality that has a winner also affects his teammates".
Cristiano Ronaldo, allegedly wants to return to Manchester United, where he played from 2004-2009 with great success. However, no one should be unaware that he has already reached his 32 years of age and certainly the margins to play high-level football is not much.
Manchester United for her part has not talked about this issue. Not even her Portuguese coach, José Mourinho, has been mentioned, at least openly.
The one that look a clear position was Bayern Munich. Through its executive president, Karl Heinz Rummenigge, said he is not interested in moving to get Cristiano.
The fact is that Cristiano, according to the Spanish Ministry of Finance, is reported to have a complex corporate network based in the British Virgin Islands and Ireland and somewhere there are involved and most of the data is lost.
Finally, according to other analysts, it is very likely that all this scene will be designed to allow Real`s administration to pay this fine, at the same time, to raise Ronaldo`s annual earnings. We`ve been!!!
