Real Madrid's Florentino Perez describes Cristiano Ronaldo as "very strange"

Real Madrid's Florentino Perez describes Cristiano Ronaldo as

Ronaldo joined Real from Manchester United in 2009 for a then world record fee of 96 million euros and is their all-time top scorer with 404 goals in 394 games.

The story claims that Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid has been a source of speculation since he was accused of tax fraud by the Spanish authorities.

"In the days since the Champions League final no-one has offered us anything for any player and everything that has come out in the media is not true, apart from the case of Theo, which was done before", he added.

Is Wal-Mart Prepared To Face The Amazon - Whole Foods Combination?
Whole Foods CEO John Mackey says the deal to be acquired by Amazon was the result of a "whirlwind courtship". Mackey, though, believes he's found the one . "I think we're choosing very, very well for ourselves".

The interview was Perez's first comment on Ronaldo since Portuguese sports daily A Bola reported on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) that Ronaldo was considering leaving Spain after a state prosecutor accused him of four counts of tax fraud totaling 14.7 million euros ($16.5 million) in unpaid taxes. I've heard everything through the newspapers. "Unless someone is willing to pay that, he will not leave", Perez told Onda Cero.

Even so, Perez said he was convinced Ronaldo would stay and affirmed that his Real contract was protected by a one billion euro release clause.

"Obviously something has happened, something has affected him, his credibility".

It, however, also fell short of its election goal of replacing the mainstream Socialist Party as the main force on the left. Macron wants to move quickly on relaxing labour regulations before overhauling France's unwieldy pension system next year.

BBC Sport says Perez will speak with Ronaldo after he has finished playing for Portugal in the Confederations Cup but asked if he was prepared to sell the player - and also Real teammate James Rodriguez - to United, he replied: "We want to keep all our players next season, including James". "Ronaldo is in a major tournament with his country and until that is over I can not talk to him", goal.com quoted Perez as saying.

The Spanish prosecution in the indictment alleged that Ronaldo had evaded tax "in a conscious and voluntary manner".

Florentino Perez will continue as Real Madrid president after being re-elected for the next four years.
