Florentino Perez - Real Madrid Not Ready For Ronaldo Move

Florentino Perez - Real Madrid Not Ready For Ronaldo Move
20/6/2017

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez says the Portuguese and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo's apparent dissatisfaction is "all very strange" but that both he and the club expect the superstar to stay at the Bernabeu this summer.

"I have not spoken with Ronaldo," Perez said. "During the election period, I've tried to be respectful and keep out of everything.

"I learned of the [reports] through what a newspaper said. He's immersed in the Confederations Cup [with Portugal] at the moment, which is an important competition, and for the moment there's nothing until that ends. Like the all other players, though, he has a contract and is a Real Madrid player.

"In football and life, in general, we encounter situations which we don't expect and we have to find the best solution for everyone. I know Cristiano and he's a good guy, not just with the ball, but as a person. This is all very strange, I will have to speak with him to see what's going on."

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a move for the Portuguese forward, while Bayern Munich denied interest on Monday.

Perez -  Madrid Not Ready For Ronaldo To Move On

"Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club," Perez said. "He is not a business -- he forms part of this club's history. He's at the level of [Madrid legend Alfredo] Di Stefano."

Concerning Ronaldo's Tax Issue

"I will defend [Ronaldo] at all costs as both a player and as a person. [I have] complete confidence [that he is innocent], he has always wanted to fulfill his fiscal commitments," Perez said.

"There must be some sort of confusion which will be clarified. What I have been told is that he has the same structure [in Spain] that he had in England -- and there was no problem there.

"I'm sure Cristiano wouldn't want us to pay his fine if there was one -- he's not like that. If he's angry it's because he feels unjustly treated.

"I've been affected by how the Cristiano news has been treated by the media. The presumption of innocence has not been respected. The only thing I know is that he's angry about the treatment the media have given him. [Ronaldo's agent Jorge] Mendes called me and told me that."

"We have built a legendary team with the best players from Spain and the world, but also with many players from our youth academy," Perez said. "This is the model that will continue to define Real Madrid. When united, this club is practically indestructible."
