It comes after reports suggested on Monday night that Cristiano had just left his Majorcan holiday home for a day out with his family when one of his bodyguards crashed his car.
The father of five was sitting in another car in a small convoy with his loved ones when his employee came off the road and crashed into a stone wall.
The respected island newspaper Cronica Balear said the unnamed bodyguard got out of the car to continue his journey and left other staff employed by the Man United footballer on the spot to receive the police.

It was not immediately clear where the Portuguese could go internationally, but he is pictured enjoying days out with his family on his £ 5.5 million Azimut Grande superyacht docked at Port Adriano in southwest Mallorca.
It is believed Cristiano rented a luxury villa near the scene of Monday morning’s crash on a small road near Joan March Hospital in Bunyola township.
The damaged Bugatti was later taken away in a trailer with a blue tarpaulin.
Cronica Balear said security staff left to look at the car while waiting for police to arrive ‘had done everything to make sure curious locals who recognized the Bugatti as Cristiano’s tried to take pictures.

The identity of the person at the helm has not yet been revealed, but it is known Cristiano Ronaldo and his family are being protected in Cheshire by Portuguese twins who served as soldiers with an elite special forces unit in Afghanistan.
The strong men are named as Sergio and Jorge Ramalheiro, who went on to become part of a Portuguese close protection unit tasked with overseeing the likes of politicians and judges after serving in Afghanistan.
It is not known if the accident involved Sergio or Jorge Ramalheiro.
Portuguese celeb magazine Flash said the twins, part of a set of triplets, were hired by Cristiano after they were asked to go on unpaid leave from the PSP police to pursue other interests.
The third brother, named as Alexandre, is still understood to work as a police officer.
Spanish police confirmed yesterday afternoon that they had no information to suggest that Cristiano had been in the car at the time.
One well-placed source said: ‘The car crashed into a wall, but there was only material damage with no one injured and the driver accepted full responsibility for what happened.
‘The information about who was behind the wheel and what happened is recorded in a police database and is there for a court or officials to access if further investigation is needed.
‘But it’s more a case of the information that needs to be registered so that the owner of the damaged property can file a claim for damages and use the police report as a backup in case there is a dispute about how the damage has been done. ‘
