Perez says he hasn't spoken to Ronaldo about rumors of exit

The public prosecutor's office of Madrid filed a lawsuit against Jose Mourinho on Tuesday, accusing the Manchester United manager of defrauding the Spanish taxman of 3.3 million euros (3.7 million dollars) during his time as Real Madrid coach. Perez, being elected president of Real Madrid until 2021, is confident, Ronaldo will remain in Real, "I did not speak to Christiano".

Ronaldo has yet to comment publicly on the matter, but despite the constant noise surrounding their star player, the Portuguese camp insisted on Tuesday that it is business as usual for Ronaldo and the team ahead of the Russian Federation clash. Only a handful of teams can afford Ronaldo, though, taking into account both the prospective transfer fee and his wages.

Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013 to manage Chelsea for a second spell before signing with United past year.

Real's president Florentino Perez also insisted earlier this week that no offer had been made to the club for the 32-year old, hence he remains a Madrid player.

Mourinho, 54, who left Madrid in 2013, faces two counts of tax fraud.

Di Maria is, like Ronaldo and Mourinho, a client of the Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes, who himself has been summoned to appear before the court at Pozuelo de Alarcon, just outside Madrid, on June 27.

"The Spanish government, at the time and through the revenue service, confirmed with a certificate that they had reviewed the situation and that we were up to date with our tax obligations", Gestifute said.

Manchester United and Paris St Germain have been alerted to Ronaldo's potential availability following the revelations of his disenchantment with his predicament in Spain, but his former club have played down talk of a return to Old Trafford.

Ronaldo is now on worldwide duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup, but, according to the report, has told his teammates that Perez's words were "better late than never" and have conveniently led to him having a change of heart. The AS report says Ronaldo "has felt comforted by Florentino's defense".

Immediately after Ronaldo vented his frustration at Real, speculation mounted that he could be set for a return, as CR7 has always reaffirmed his love for the club. Portuguese sports daily A Bola had also claimed that Perez had already been informed of the decision.
