Reports of his success in this year’s competition follow a difficult few days for the 31-year-old forward off the pitch.

On Saturday, Ronaldo was alleged to have directed at least €150 million through the British Virgin Islands in order to avoid paying income tax.

The alleged tax avoidance was reported by several newspapers across Europe who are working in conjunction with the Football Leaks group.

The Gestifute agency, which represents Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho, who was also implicated, has denied all wrongdoing by its clients.
