CRISTIANO Ronaldo is said to be considering leaving Spain following recent tax fraud allegations.

The Real Madrid star is being prosecuted for allegedly defrauding Spanish authorities of €14.7 million between 2011 and 2014.

But according to Portugese publication A Bola, the 32-year-old is weighing up leaving La Liga as he feels persecuted by the charges, which he refutes.

“Despite the player’s deep passion for Real, Ronaldo’s decision is taken and the player wants to leave Spain shortly after the short holiday following the Confederations Cup,” A Bola said.

They cite sources who claim the father-of-one is ‘deeply disillusioned’ and that he feels he is ‘a victim of persecution’.

When asked by a reporter about the lawsuits, Ronaldo said: “I have a clear conscience.”
