£175m & Man United's best player for Cristiano Ronaldo

Amid reports that Cristiano Ranoldo has chose to leave Real Madrid C.F., manager Zinedine Zidane has contacted the star striker to convince him to remain at Santiago Bernabeu. If he leaves I don't see him in a place like China or the Middle East.

While Ronaldo is understood to have made a decision to leave Madrid before the Champions League final, the tax issues surrounding him at present are the driving factor but Tebas believes the forward is completely innocent and can not understand the crime that he has allegedly committed. "It took me a long time and a big effort to sign him when Man United didn't want to let him go". He's very fit, in good shape and playing very well.

Calderon added: "I had the same situation with Manchester United when he chose to leave and I signed him".

"The club has been very important in his career".

He has also helped his team to win two La Liga titles after joining them on transfer from Manchester United F.C. for a ten record 80 million pounds in 2009.

According to Marca when Zidane heard Ronaldo had sworn to quit he broke off from his family holiday and called his No7 to tell him Madrid "needed him for his goals, and also his winning mentality".

The world's top clubs are ready to scramble for Ronaldo's signature including his former club United, who want to be title challengers again.

"Ronaldo would cost more than Paul Pogba because he is a better player".

Calderon said: "I'm sure Cristiano won't leave Europe".

The Portugese global also suggested to Ferguson that he didn't feel the same camaraderie in the Real Madrid dressing room that he had felt during his time at Manchester United, with there often being a strained atmosphere in the Madrid locker room.

The 26-year-old told the official website of the Confederations Cup: "It goes without saying that he's a great player".
