A four-time Ballon d'Or victor, the 32-year-old Ronaldo is the top European soccer player. "Cristiano is not a business, it is history of Real Madrid".

This scenario is one that a lot of Manchester United fans have been hoping and praying for and it will be the realization of a dream if it happens.

Perez stressed that unless another club is willing to pay $1.2 billion for Ronaldo, the world's biggest football star will continue to remain in the world's biggest football club.

Prosecutors said he had failed to declare revenues from his image rights in his Spanish income tax declarations from 2011 and 2012, "with the aim of obtaining illicit profits".

"I want to talk with him", the long-serving Real president said.

Instead of taking questions from the assembled media in Madrid, Perez gave a statement which did not mention the club's superstar.

Perez said he is yet to receive an offer for Ronaldo - or striker Alvaro Morata or midfielder James Rodriguez, both of whom have also been linked with United.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo, who became the Spanish and European champions' all-time leading scorer last season, had reportedly told teammates he was ready to move on from Real Madrid.

However, Perez said that he had not spoken to Ronaldo, who is on duty for Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, which ends on July 2.

"But something really freaky would have to happen if he were to leave this club".

And among the first issues he will have to deal with is Ronaldo - who he bought in 2009 from Manchester United for a record 94 million euros.

Since extending his contract in November until 2021, Ronaldo is according to Forbes the highest paid sports star in the world with $93 million in 2016-2017.

His expression to leave Madrid has opened potential moves to Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Ronaldo, 32, is said to want to leave Spain after being accused of tax fraud.

According to reports, Ronaldo's treatment in Spain over the allegations has led to wanting a departure, despite winning three of the last four Champions League crowns with the club.
