Christian Karembau believes Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave the club, despite talks that he wants to leave.
The Portuguese star was accused of tax evasion by Spanish tax authorities, and reportedly wants to leave Madrid.
However, Ronaldo has not commented on the issue and Karembau believes he won’t leave Santiago Bernabeu.
“We need to be realistic. He has a contract and with any contact there are rules and laws. His release clause is €1 billion and no club will be able to pay that. I think Cristiano will stay and they will find a solution. We will see what happens, but I think he will stay.”
“He broke all the records,” the former France international said. “He belongs to Real Madrid and I think he knows that. He has achieved many, many goals with Real Madrid.
“He is a worldwide brand, just like Real Madrid, so I think he is in the best place and I think he will end up staying.”
Karembeu, a World Cup winner and European champion with France, spent three seasons at Real and won the Champions League on two occasions – in 1998 and 2000. The 46-year-old is now an ambassador for La Liga.
