MADRID - Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez ruled out the prospect of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving the club over the summer in a radio interview he gave on Tuesday night.

Speaking on ESRadio, Perez was questioned about the player, whose future at the club has been thrown in doubt after he was accused of a tax fraud of almost 15 million euros.

That has started rumors that Ronaldo wants to leave Spain because he is angry at the accusation, with Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain or China given as possible destinations.

"Cristiano has a contract with Real Madrid... All we have to do is wait and we will talk with him after the Confederations Cup (which Ronaldo is currently participating in with Portugal in Russia)," said Perez.

"We are delighted that he is at Madrid and I think Cristiano is going to continue and there is no need to worry more than necessary," continued the Madrid President.

Perez also ruled out that the rumors had come about to try and get Ronaldo an improved contract, despite only recently extending his agreement with the club.

"He has never done that for a new contract. He has been at the club for eight years and he has had an exemplary behavior," explained Perez, who concluded by saying he would not "contemplate the hypothesis," that Ronaldo could leave.

"He is the best player we have, the best in the world and he has a contract... He is not greedy, he is only angry because the treatment he has been given doesn't correspond to what he represents," concluded the Madrid President.
