FOOTBALLING superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has strongly denied the ‘disgusting’ claims that he paid a woman £300,000 who accused him of rape.

The lurid claims were made by German magazine Der Spiegel alleging that the Real Madrid forward, 32, paid a settlement to the unnamed woman in 2010 following an alleged incident in 2009.

Ronaldo’s representatives have strongly denied the lurid claims branding them ‘disgusting’

But the former Manchester United player’s representatives have slammed the article branding it a “piece of journalistic fiction.”

A statement released by Gestifute, the sports management firm founded by Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes, also called the claims “outrageous and disgusting.”

According to the article the allegations come from a letter by the woman – who was in her 20s at the time of the incident.

But Portuguese international Ronaldo denies ever receiving the letter.

Gestifute’s statement reads: “The German newspaper Der Spiegel today publishes an extensive report on an allegation of rape alleged to have been made to Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009, ie about 8 years ago.

“It is a piece of journalistic fiction.”

It continued: “And the whole plot is based on unsigned documents and where the parties are identified by codes, in emails between lawyers who do not concern Cristiano Ronaldo and whose authenticity he does not know, and in a supposed letter that would have been sent by the putative victim, but which he never received.

“The report by Der Spiegel is false and Cristiano Ronaldo will act against this media by all means at his fingertips.

“The imputation of a violation is a disgusting and outrageous accusation that can not be made clear.”
