LaLiga Boss: Why Ronaldo Really Quit Real

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has explained what he thinks superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's real reason for quitting Real Madrid for Juventus is.

The Highest-Paid Players At Juve After Ronaldo Deal

Before he signed for the Bianconeri, Ronaldo was believed to be feeling undervalued and underappreciated at Los Blancos as the club had not offered him a bumper deal during the 2017/18 season, something they had reportedly promised him.

However, Tebas feels the main reason the 33-year-old sought a move away from Real was due to the problems he had with Spanish tax authorities over the past few years.

"Ronaldo has gone for a fiscal issue," he said, according to Mundo Deportivo.

"In Italy, due to the new regulations, it will charge more net of the gross than in Spain.

"Real Madrid had a hard time competing with that and there will be more reasons, but that's a very big one."

It is believed that, in June, Ronaldo accepted a two-year suspended prison sentence for tax evasion between 2011 and 2014.

The Portuguese became Juventus' record signing with his €100 million (R1.55 billion) price tag.
