Real Madrid’s president has again spoken about the future of Cristiano Ronaldo on Santiago Bernabeu.Written by Cosmin Mihalescu. June 28, 2017.
In the studio of a radio show in Spain, Florentino Perez expressed his certitude that Ronaldo will continue with Real Madrid.
“I know he is angry, but I think he will stay”, Perez was quoted by the Spanish press.
Real’s president admitted that he has not been in contact with the player himself, but rather with his agent, Jorge Mendes:Kane: Spurs out of excuses after shock Carabao Cup exit Andrew Smyth – Harry Kane concedes that Tottenham only have themselves to blame following a shock Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United.
“I haven’t spoken with him. The only thing that we can do is to wait and to speak after the Confederations Cup. I talked with Mendes about him. There is no need to be more worried than it is the case.”
“I am not thinking about him leaving. He is the best player we have, he is the best in the world and he has a contract. There are people who think he does this to get a wage increase, but in the eight years he has been here, he has never done that. He is not the type of person to come and ask for more money. You cannot sign a new contract every year.”
“He is a man of integrity and he fully respects his obligations. There are many people that want to hurt him regarding these taxes and other things, and he feels that”, Perez added in the defense of his player.
Real’s president also wanted to specify that he did not ask the press not to publish pictures with Cristiano Ronaldo in a Real Madrid shirt when the subject of tax fraud is discussed: “These are small problems for us. It’s not at all true that I have called someone. There is a lot of distraction, but we cannot stay all day long to infirm news. The fans know perfectly how every journalist is, and people trust us.”
