Florentino Pérez will remain as president of Real Madrid until 2021 after no other candidates ran against him, the Spanish champions announced on Monday.

The 32-year-old was livid over being singled out for disproportionate treatment after prosecutors accused him of defrauding the authorities of €14.7 million (£12.8 million).

"I'm not contemplating that Cristiano will leave".

It is understood that Ronaldo would consider offers only from European clubs, with a hint that he has unfinished business at United.

Real Madrid released a statement saying they had "full confidence" in their player, and they were convinced he would prove his innocence.

His favourite manager Sir Alex Ferguson might not still be at the helm at United, but considering he is still a fan favourite at Old Trafford, it would be far from a surprise if he were to make a move to Manchester. "He has broken all the records at the club, he has got three Champions Leagues in four years and La Liga this year".

Ronaldo, of course, has been at the Santiago Bernabeu for the past eight seasons.

Manchester United was always going to be his most likely destination, with Cristiano, several times in the past, professing his love for the club where he spent six fruitful years.

A two-time La Liga victor, his 285 goals in 265 league appearances mean he is second only to Barcelona's Lionel Messi in that competition. While their relationship did not end on the best terms, Mourinho would surely know how to maximize Ronaldo's talents once again.

Ronaldo is with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation and has not said anything about his future since the A Bola story was published.

It merely adds to the air of uncertainty. The buy-out clause of €150m in his contract, which is worth more than a €1 billion, would make any deal for him to leave hard unless Real backed down.

Morata's agent told last week that the striker's proposed transfer to Manchester United awaits a decision from Real.

The France international's sudden superstardom has seen his name linked to Europe's biggest clubs, with reports Real Madrid lead the line for his services should he leave the principality. And the wait may be a long one.
