Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has said the club are yet to receive a bid for Cristiano Ronaldo, and defended his player amid allegations he committed tax fraud.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez was re-elected on Monday but didn't make any comment about Ronaldo in his news conference.

Sources close to Ronaldo have indicated that the four-times Ballon d'Or victor has made an "irreversible" decision to leave Real, largely out of indignation at having been accused last week by Spanish prosecutors of defrauding tax authorities of €14.8 million (about £12.9 million).

United and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in signing Ronaldo in the summer transfer window, reports the Sun.

The four-time World Footballer of the Year has helped Real win the Champions League three times and La Liga twice.

"Not I nor anyone at Madrid is contemplating that Cristiano could leave the club".

Speaking to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, he said: "I do not want to draw conclusions".

"It's no coincidence that he's in a very important tournament, the Confederations Cup".

The legendary Scot presented Ronaldo with his man of the match trophy after Real Madrid's 4-1 win against Serie A giants Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff.

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.

"Cristiano is not angry about who pays the fine".

But "since his arrival in Spain in 2009 until 2014 for which he declares 5.6 million euros, he hadn't declared any income from image rights which looks like a covering up of these revenues, this is what prompted the tax investigations and inspections", Gestha president Carlos Cruzado told AFP.

His options are fairly limited as a result, as United and PSG are perhaps the only clubs in Europe capable of shouldering that burden, even factoring in the commercial benefit his capture would bring to any club that signed him.

"The clause for Cristiano is £1bn".

Football Soccer - Portugal training session - 2017 Confederations Cup - Oeiras, Portugal - 14/06/17 - Portugal's national soccer team player Cristiano Ronaldo attends a training session. He will be in charge of the club for the next four years. Does Ronaldo really want to leave Real, or is he angling after a better deal? The latter seems likelier but the bombardment of stories claiming Ronaldo is desperate for a move are nearly convincing.
