"As no other candidature was put forward to the is proclaimed that Mr Florentino Perez Rodriguez is president of Real Madrid", the Spanish and European champions said in a statement.

Meanwhile former Real manager Jose Mourinho was accused by a state prosecutor of defrauding Spain's Tax Office of 3.3 million euros (£2.9 million) during his time as Los Blancos boss.

It's claimed that United were exploring the possibility of signing the 32-year-old but have not yet submitted a bid.

Team Portugal supporters were not concerned about the tax fraud case that had been opened against Ronaldo by Spanish authorities.

Manchester United were naturally touted as a potential destination for the Portugal global in the summer transfer window given his emotional ties to Old Trafford.

AS reported Wednesday that Ronaldo is also having second thoughts about departing Madrid after hearing "very positive" comments from Perez. He's not talking about his family, Real Madrid, nothing.

Among Jong-hwan's ideas are a women's hockey team comprised of both North and South Koreans to compete in the Games. The two teams regularly play each other in friendlies and at global competitions.

But a statement released by Mourinho's representatives Gestifute Media said he had not been informed personally of the accusations.

Manchester United have taken further steps in their attempts to find a successor to star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as they have reportedly opened talks with Real Madrid over a deal for Spanish striker Álvaro Morata.

Madrid prosecutors said that after signing for the Spanish giants from Benfica in 2010, Di Maria had used companies in Panama and Ireland to hide earnings from the marketing of image rights.

In Spain, sentences less than two years are normally suspended unless the individual has a prior conviction.

Messi and his father were given 21-month sentences for three counts of tax fraud but did not go to prison, while Mascherano was given a one-year sentence for tax evasion.

In 2016, Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano received a one-year suspended prison sentence for tax fraud while Barca superstars Lionel Messi and Neymar are both now awaiting court decisions.
