Cristiano Ronaldo (31) is reportedly thinking about quitting Real Madrid after being angry at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities. Spanish prosecutors have filed a lawsuit against Ronaldo over tax that they believe he should have paid, accusing the player of defrauding 15 million Euros from the taxpayer.

The team, Real Madrid, on the other hand are convinced that Ronaldo is innocent. However, it is also being claimed that Ronaldo will be available for a !80 million Euro bid this summer.

In case, Ronaldo quits Real Madrid, there are quite a few teams that would want him on their side, such as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), who have been trying to sign a deal with the footballer since the 2015/16 season. Manchester United too might be willing to bring back Ronaldo and look for winning the title.

Lionel Messi made Barcelona win the match against Real Madrid for the La Liga title race by a score of 3 – 2. Not only that, Messi also scored his 500th goal as a Barcelona player with that last goal of the match. The goal came in stoppage time and rose Barcelona’s hopes of a third straight La Liga title.

This was Messi’s first goal against Real Madrid after three years.

The match seemed to have swung decisively in Barca’s favor when Ramos scythed down Messi to be shown the 22nd red card of his career. However, even with 10 men, Madrid rallied and leveled when substitute James Rodriguez swept home Marcelo’s cross four minutes from time.

However, that celebration was short-lived as Messi smashed the last goal into the corner after a cross from Jordi Alba.

Christiano Ronaldo helped his team reach the semi-finals of the Champions League by scoring a hat-trick against Bayern, to win the game by 4-2. Not only that, he also managed to become the first man to reach 100 Champions League goals.

The key turning point in the match was when Arturo Vidal was given a second yellow card, and sent off the ground , thus reducing Bayern to a 10 man team, similar to what happened in the 1st leg of the quarter final.

The extra man proved decisive as Madrid settle the tie with a three-goal burst either side of half time in extra time.
