It has emerged today that Cristiano Ronaldo has voiced his intentions to leave Real Madrid after being accused of tax fraud.
The Portuguese international has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week, after being accused by Spanish prosecutors of defrauding authorities of £12.9 million in unpaid taxes between 2011 and 2014.
The 32-year-old joined Los Blancos in 2009 and has lifted the Champions League on three occasions during his time in Spain.
The shock news will have alerted European giants such as Bayern Munich, Paris St Germain and Manchester United into plotting a big money transfer.
However, Ronaldo is surprisingly keen on the prospect of joining many clubs within the Caribbean.
When questioned about what attracted him to the places, Ronaldo responded by stating, “There are many reasons for my decision. The lovely weather, the nice beaches, I also hear the tax regimes are quite friendly.”
He added, “It’s been very difficult being victimised over the past week.
“I just want to move to a country where I can continue to get paid for playing football and keep as much of that money as possible. Is that too much to ask?
“No, I don’t know any specific clubs in the Cayman Islands or the Bahamas, but as long as it’s tax-free, then it’s good enough for me.”
