Real Madrid striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, who reportedly wants to quit the Spanish club was summoned to appear before a judge investigating tax fraud.


Ronaldo, 32, said to have vowed that he would never play for Real Madrid again, was summoned to appear in a Madrid court on July 31 to answer four counts of tax evasion of 14.7 million euro ($16.5m).


Unhappy Ronaldo, the four-time world player of the year, has left his future at the Spanish giants in doubt and has been linked to United and other top clubs after angrily announcing last week that his “conscience is clear.”


According to media reports Ronaldo is unsettled at Real Madrid because he believes the European champions did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman.


And he has also complained on multiple occasions in the past about Real supporters, who have resorted at times to jeering and booing his performance on the pitch.


Ronaldo is currently with the Portugal squad in Russia for the Confederations Cup.
