Cristiano Ronaldo told Sir Alex Ferguson he wanted to leave Real Madrid SIX weeks ago, according to reports.
The Portugal international insists he wants to leave Spain after allegations of £12.9million fraud.
He is so upset at being accused of tax avoidance he wants to quit the Bernabeu.
The Galactico even changed the picture on his Instagram account to a snap of him playing for Portugal.
And the Mirror are now reporting that Ron told his former boss of his intentions to leave.
The report suggests Ronaldo told Fergie that he felt unloved at the club and has grown tired of his own fans booing him on certain occasions at a function before the Champions League final.
He is said to have told Fergie he misses the atmosphere at Manchester United and feels his relationship with the Los Blancos faithful is becoming strained.
Real will do everything to keep Ronaldo and are priming an offer to extend his £365,000-a-week deal by a year AND pay off any demands from authorities.
The Spanish giants dished out a £365,000-a-week deal last November to keep him at the club until 2021.
He will now get that extended by a year plus a signing-on fee to cover any demands from the authorities.
He also has an £874million buy-out clause on his current deal for clubs to speak to him over a sensational switch.
Manchester United fans would love Ronaldo to return to Old Trafford but boss Jose Mourinho does not believe the player is about to leave – and feels the club will pay his tax as part of a new deal.
