Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo

"I hold the opinion that nobody is indispensable, not just Cristiano Ronaldo", he said.

According to Spanish media, Ronaldo has expressed much outrage against Spain's treatment of him, especially after being thrown these tax evasion allegations.

While Real Madrid may be reluctant to hand Ronaldo a new contract after he signed a fresh deal only last November, this may be the first sign that his desire to quit Spanish football this summer is not set in stone.

The four-time World Player of the Year, who said last week his "conscience is clear", is threatening to leave Real Madrid over the affair.

It 'Will Be Very Difficult' for Qatar to Meet Arab Neighbors' Demands
Qatar rejects those accusations and says it is being punished for straying from its neighbours' backing for authoritarian rulers. The energy-rich country said it was reviewing the ultimatum but added it would not negotiate under siege.

"I hope [he'll return]".

"I haven't spoken with Cristiano, I learned about it because of what came out in the newspapers".

I believe everyone must comply with their tax obligations, and I know that Cristiano always does things the right way.

Madrid president Florentino Perez stressed this week his side had no plans to sell the prized asset, but Figo insists no player or executive is bigger than the club when it comes to the Liga and European champions giants.

Petra Kvitova qualifies for her first final since horrific knife attack
The 27-year-old Kvitova returns to a WTA final for the first time since winning the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai in November. The left-hander, who has dropped to 16th in the world rankings, served an ace to clinch her 20th tour title.

Perez, however, stood by his star player and went on to say that he had not got the opportunity to speak to him following the tax fraud accusations.

Ronaldo is with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation and has not said anything about his future since the A Bola story was published, which said Ronaldo wants to leave Real Madrid.

Perez, a 70-year-old construction magnate, was elected unopposed Monday for a third term in charge of Europe's most successful club. But tax authorities later found that some of the information presented in that settlement was incorrect, the prosecutors said.

There has been speculation that Ronaldo is trying to put pressure on Real so that they will bear some of the burden of an eventual fine as Barcelona did for Lionel Messi.

Federer outplays Zverev to win ninth Halle crown
Federer , 35, despatched Russian Karen Khachanov 6-4, 7-6 (7/5) on Saturday to move into the final. However, he was defeated by Alexander Zverev in three sets in the semi-finals at Halle in 2016.

Manchester United were naturally touted as a potential destination for the Portugal worldwide in the summer transfer window given his emotional ties to Old Trafford. Zidane is among his admirers, he wanted to sign him when he was younger than 16 but rules did not allow us.
