BAYERN Munich have denied reports of a move for Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo, calling the story a "hoax".

"I'm a Man United fan, and my kids love him, so I hope that he'll be back".

Real president Florentino Perez has backed the forward in his tax case but stopped short of discussing the 32-year-old's future. "I have a good relationship with him after working together for eight years".

According to Portuguese daily A Bola, the 32-year-old, who is currently on worldwide duty with Portugal for the Confederations Cup, has been left angered at his treatment by Spanish tax authorities and now wishes to leave the country.

It has been reported that FC Barcelona want Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to stay at Los Blancos. "The point now is whether he really has chose to leave".

Ronaldo, who is now on global duty with Portugal at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, is said to be "outraged" after Spanish prosecutors accused him of defrauding authorities of nearly £13million, an accusation he denies.

Perez's radio interview came hours after the 70-year-old businessman was reelected to a fifth four-year term as Madrid's president.

Replying to the rumours, Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: 'We are accustomed to speculating intensively on possible ins and outs during the transfer period.

"As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours".

Under Perez, Real Madrid have won three Champions League titles in four seasons. A transfer for Ronaldo would smash the world-record transfer fee of $116 million that Manchester United paid Juventus for Paul Pogba last summer, and it's not an offer you quickly make.
