Ronaldo won't quit Real, says Real boss


Re-elected Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has described the uncertainty surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo's future as "very strange".

Perez has been elected to a fifth term as Madrid's president, extending his tenure with the La Liga giant until 2021.

The reigning Ballon d'Or and Best FIFA Men's Player award victor is believed to feel singled out for disproportionate treatment after Spanish prosecutors accused him of evading tax of 14.7million euros (£12.8m).

"Nobody at Real Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano will go", Perez told Spanish radio station Onda Cero, as quoted in The Times.

"He just wants to be the best player in the world".

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers".

"Cristiano Ronaldo is more powerful than all of us", he said. It has affected me how the news of Cristiano was treated in the media.

He also confirmed that Ronaldo's contract was ring-fenced by a one billion euro release clause.
