Cristiano Ronaldo has paved the way for a sensational return to his former club Manchester United after admitting he would welcome a return to England.
Ronaldo is currently battling allegations of tax evasion in Spain and was questioned at a court in Madrid on Monday to determine whether he committed fraud worth almost 15 million euros.
The Real Madrid forward enjoyed six successful season with the Red Devils earlier in his career before securing a world-record move to Real Madrid in 2009.
And the Portugal international admits he is seriously considering a move back to England, after growing frustrated with the accusations of tax fraud in Spain.
‘In England, I never had these problems, that’s why I want to go back there,’ Ronaldo told Spanish radio station Cadena SER.
‘I always paid my taxes, always. In England and in Spain. As you know, I cannot hide anything, it would be ridiculous on my part to do such a thing.
‘I am an open book. you don’t need to do anything but type my name into Google and everything about Cristiano comes out.
‘For example, Forbes magazine releases all of my earnings.’
Ronaldo was heavily linked with a move away from the Bernabeu earlier this summer when the allegations of tax evasion first surfaced in the Spanish media.
The 32-year-old appeared to pledge his future to Madrid after weeks of speculation, but the forward’s latest comments will have set United boss Jose Mourinho on high alert with almost a month remaining in the summer transfer window.
