Last week, Cristiano Ronaldo was accused by prosecutors in Spain of defrauding Spanish authorities of $16.4 million in tax between 2011 and 2014.
Portuguese sports daily A Bola had also claimed that Perez had already been informed of the 32-year-old's decision.
The state prosecutor based the accusations on information provided by Spain's Tax Office, which indicate that Mourinho used shell companies in the Virgin Islands and Ireland to "hide profits made from image rights".
Ronaldo is now at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation with Portugal, and would not begin his summer break until July 3 if his side reaches the final.
According to media reports Ronaldo is unsettled at Real because he believes the European champion did not back him as fully as he had hoped in his dispute with the taxman.
However, speaking in a recent interview with Onda Cero, club president Florentino Perez defended the Portuguese and this has pleased the 4-time Ballon d'Or victor, who is now understood to be willing to extend his stay in the Spanish capital.
"But something really freaky would have to happen if he were to leave this club".
Mourinho left Real Madrid in 2013 to manage Chelsea for a second spell before signing with United a year ago.
They add that the Ronaldo case is complicated and full of legal nuances and that whilst the tax authorities in Spain started with Barcelona, they are now targeting Real Madrid.
Perez said he could understand why the four-time world player of the year had been upset after he was accused last week of tax fraud. I have not talked with Cristiano.
The complaint was quickly followed by reports that Ronaldo has chose to leave Madrid ahead of next season following his tax problems, but Perez is adamant the prolific forward will only be on the move for a huge transfer fee.
Insisting that everyone must comply with their tax obligations, the Madrid president remained hopeful that Ronaldo would will meet his tax requirements and that all the confusion would be cleared up soon.
Naturally, Manchester United has been touted as a top destination for the forward, with Ronaldo having joined Real Madrid from the Red Devils back in 2009.
