Manchester United have been put on red alert after reports that Cristiano Ronaldo has indicated a desire to leave Real Madrid. We heard that he will be offered another year at the club but the injury has messed that up.
According to the accusation, after signing his contract with Real Madrid in the summer of 2009, Ronaldo "purported to" cede his image rights to a shell company based in the British Virgin Islands, a tax haven in the Caribbean.
Ronaldo's future in Spain is under significant doubt after a series of events unfolded this past week.
Here's a quick synopsis of what some of the most recently updated news stories are claiming in regards to the "Come Home Ronaldo" narrative.

Now facing a lawsuit, Ronaldo, who is one of the world's most expensive footballers, is accused of de-frauding the Spanish tax system of nearly 15 million euros.
Meanwhile, Mexico forward Raul Jimenez, who plays his club football in Portugal with Benfica, is confident his team-mates can keep Ronaldo quiet at the Kazan Arena. Stay at Real Madrid?
The 32-year-old former Manchester United winger is reportedly angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and wishes to leave the country, according to the front page of Portuguese daily A Bola yesterday.
Ronaldo's advisers, though, have been told to find him a new club outside Spain because he is angry after being accused of evading tax of £14.7m between 2011 and 2014.
Although the Portuguese worldwide has enjoyed a blistering season in Spain, he has admitted he wants to leave the country.
