Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo

A Bola, the Lisbon based sports paper, announced what could be earth-shattering news for fans of Los Blancos who could not envisage their number seven leaving the club, even at the age of 31. Ballon d'Or winner, goal-scoring record breaker and more often than not the key to winning LaLiga and the Champions League in the past season, Cristiano has adapted his game to become a new threat to opponents. But this could be a thing of the past if the reports are to be believed.

"Irreversible decision to leave"

The reason stated for this decision is that Ronaldo is incensed with the tax authorities investigation into financial misdemeanors. He has been accused by Spanish prosecutors of defrauding the country of nearly 15 million euros from his image rights. This anger has led the star to look at a move away from Spain, with A Bola saying that he has already communicated this fact to Madrid president Florentino Pérez, and that it is "irreversible".
