Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo held a secret meeting with Paris Saint Germain owner, Nasser Al-Khelaifi during his visit to Ibiza, according to reports.
The 32-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu this summer following reports that he evaded tax in Spain.
Reports in OK Diario claim that Ronaldo held talks with the PSG billionaire owner on yacht as he continues to spend his break on the Spanish island of Ibiza.
The former United star is believed to have told his representatives to help him seal a move away from Real Madrid despite the club’s backing over his tax fraud allegations.
Club president Florentino Perez had earlier hinted as a possible exit, after admitting that Cristiano Ronaldo is ‘angry’.
He said: “I know Cristiano is angry, but I think he will stay.
“I haven’t spoken with him. The only thing that has to be done is to wait and talk after the Confederations [Cup].”
In the wake of the allegations, Ronaldo’s reps, Gestitute agency has come to defend the Ballon D’or winner in an official statement, which read: “Cristiano Ronaldo signed for Real Madrid in 2009 under the Law of Impatriots, legislation in force and prevailing then, and he was taxed only for the incomes that were attributable to Spain.
“The Prosecutor’s Office says that the player declared the income derived from the transfer of image rights as income from movable capital to evade taxes.
“The laws applicable to Cristiano Ronaldo are the Personal Income Tax Law and the Impatriots Law.
“In Articles 25.4 and 13.1.F3, respectively, it is clear that the player’s income for image rights is considered to be as movable capital and will only exceptionally be income from an economic activity.
“The player declared to the Tax Authorities 100 per cent of the part attributable to Spain of Tollin’s income and his image rights during the periods 2009-2014 and 2015-2020.
“All this according to the criteria set by the United Kingdom Treasury to determine that part of the image transfer revenue was originated in that country, which shows that there was no intention to defraud.
“In conclusion: the declared amount can be discussed, but it is clear that the football player did not try to evade taxes.”
