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. As for what Real would expect to receive in return for selling Ronaldo, Metro says "a €150m (£131m) bid could be enough".

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".

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are the two clubs most keenly pursuing the 31-year-old forward's signature, but Perez skipped over talk of a sale by pricing Ronaldo out of the market.

"The last time that I talked with Cristiano was in Cardiff, after the game".

Tebas told La Sexta: "Knowing the people that surround Cristiano Ronaldo, how professional they are, and from what I've read regarding the reports done by the Spanish tax agency ..."

Ronaldo added fuel to the fire yesterday when he dodged media duties after a dazzling display in Portugal's 2-2 draw with Mexico in Kazan at the Confederations Cup.

Cristiano Ronaldo looks increasingly likely to leave Real Madrid this summer, with the English Premier League looking like his probable destination.

The Real Madrid ace denies all the charges and the paper says that the Portugal worldwide has been "angered and saddened by the claim and the reporting of it in Spain".

"We are accustomed to intensive speculation on possible arrivals and departures during the transfer period", wrote Rummenigge in the statement. Portuguese sports daily A Bola then reported that Ronaldo was planning on leaving Madrid and it would be an "irreversible" decision.

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

Victory meant Real became the first team to win back-to-back Champions League titles, with Ronaldo the competition's record goalscorer with 105.
