TAX WOES? Portuegese International Cristiano Ronaldo faces tax evasion charges

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo according to various media reports in Italy.

It is believed that Juve could spend up to €100 million for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, who has previously spoken of his admiration for the Italian club.

Cristiano has a €1 Billion release clause but there is an agreement that he can leave for £88m if he goes to a club not considered a direct rival.

Ronaldo prompted questions about his future after their 3-1 Champions League final victory over Liverpool in Kiev, promising an announcement “soon”.

The 33-year-old Portugal forward has scored 450 goals and assisted 131 times in 438 matches for Real Madrid.

He was applauded by Juventus fans last season after scoring a spectacular overhead kick in the Champions League quarter-finals at Juventus’ Stadium.

Real Madrid paid Manchester United £80m for Ronaldo in 2009.
