Cristiano Ronaldo decided he wants to leave Real Madrid two months ago due to his treatment by the Spanish tax authorities. 

Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, advised him not to say anything until after the Champions League Final in Cardiff.

Ronaldo is accused of defrauding €14.7 million in income tax declarations. 

Ronaldo was angered by the wave of criticism his case received compared to Lionel Messi.
