The former Manchester United and Real Madrid man is in a spot of trouble.

Fernando Santos defended Cristiano Ronaldo's right to give the media the brush off once again after the Real Madrid star grabbed the only goal as Portugal beat Russian Federation 1-0 on Wednesday.

"Cristiano definitely didn't want us to pay his fine. he isn't like that".

The two current Portuguese stars at Real are Pepe and Fabio Coentrao and both are expected to leave in the summer leaving Ronaldo as the only Portuguese at the club. He has a contract with us so he's a Madrid player.

This assumes, however, that Ronaldo is still a Madrid player, with a source confirming that he wants to leave Madrid and Spain as a result of accusations from the Spanish tax authorities and the media.

Russian Federation tried hard to deny Portugal space in the middle of the field, Raphael Guerreiro was given just that wide on the left to deliver an inviting cross to the far post, where the Real Madrid striker Ronaldo took a position converted that into a goal taking benefit of defender Fedor Kudriashov's misjudgment.

The attack has raised tensions in London , which had suffered three previous extremist attacks in the last three months.

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". We have not had an offer for Cristiano. the Sheikh at PSG is a friend of mine and he hasn't called me nor have we talked.

"It's all very unusual because Cristiano is an unbelievable footballer and a great person, let's see what will happen".

He has also been ordered to pay a fine of £1.76m. "All we know is that he's unhappy with the treatment he has had from the press, who have claimed that he is a tax cheat".

However, Real president Florentino Perez revealed on Tuesday that he has not held talks with Ronaldo about his future at the club.

Ronaldo's future at Real Madrid looked guaranteed after lifting his third Champions League title with the club earlier this month, the Portugal worldwide scoring twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus.

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 for a then-world record fee of 96 million euros and is their all-time top scorer with 404 goals in 394 games.
