Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo is "upset" after being accused of tax fraud and wants to leave, a source close to the player told the BBC.
Spanish prosecutors have accused Ronaldo, 32, of defrauding the authoritiesof millions of euros in tax, which he has denied.
"He feels he's honest, has good character and did everything OK," added the source.
His Real contract has a 1bn euro (£874.88m) release clause.
The source added: "He's very sad and really upset.
"He doesn't want to stay in Spain. At this moment, he wants to leave."
Ronaldo, who joined Real from Manchester United for £80m in 2009, signed a five-year deal with the European champions in November 2016.
China would be one potential destination but the Portuguese forward's advisers would prefer for him to stay in Europe, most likely either moving to Paris St-Germain or returning to the Premier League.
Ronaldo, who has helped Real win the Champions League three times and La Liga twice, is accused of evading tax to the value of 14.7m euros (£13m; $16m) between 2011 and 2014.
Real Madrid have released a statement saying they had "full confidence" in their player, and that they were convinced he would prove his innocence.
In 2016-17, Ronaldo helped Real win the Spanish title for the first time since 2012 as well as retain the Champions League.
Ronaldo, who also won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008, has scored a record 105 goals in the competition, 11 more than Barcelona's Lionel Messi, his nearest challenger.

Do you think he could possibly return to Man united?
Birmingham City have made a contract offer to former Chelsea and England captain John Terry, according to Blues boss Harry Redknapp.
The 36-year-old left the Premier League champions at the end of the season after making 717 appearances and winning 13 major trophies in 22 years.
However, the centre-back only featured 14 times for Chelsea in 2016-17.
"We've made him a good offer and we have done the best we can," Redknapp told TalkSport.
"It's up to John now, but we would love him at Birmingham."
Terry is Chelsea's third-highest all-time appearance maker, behind Ron Harris and Peter Bonetti, and holds the club record for appearances as captain.
But he only started two Premier League games after September last campaign as manager Antonio Conte preferred Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz as his three centre-backs.
Redknapp recently linked up with Terry for Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick's testimonial match, with Terry captaining Redknapp's All-Stars.
He could become Redknapp's second signing as Blues boss, following the arrival of goalkeeper David Stockdale on a free transfer from Brighton on Tuesday.
