Real president Perez "not contemplating" Ronaldo departure


Real president Perez

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is set to speak about Cristiano Ronaldo's future on Monday evening as speculation continues to mount over a possible Manchester United return.

Ronaldo has helped Real win the UEFA Champions League thrice, scoring twice in last month's final as they became the first club to retain the title, and he is also the competition's record goal scorer with 105 strikes. With the collapse of their move for Antoine Griezmann and Andrea Belotti proving too expensive, Ronaldo could be the ideal tonic for Jose Mourinho.

Costa Rica goalkeeper Navas was criticised at several points last season for unconvincing displays which cost Real points leading to reports in the Spanish media that the club would make another move for De Gea.

However, Pepe's former defensive partner at Madrid, Sergio Ramos, has other ideas with Marca reporting that the Spanish worldwide has telephoned Ronaldo to try and convince him to stay at the club.

"Ronaldo is a lot more powerful and more important than all of us who are here", he added. Portuguese sports daily A Bola then reported that Ronaldo was planning on leaving Madrid and it would be an "irreversible" decision. "There is no turning back". He also said he needed to speak to the Portuguese but, with the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation under way, now was not a good time. Talking but saying nothing. Does Ronaldo really want to leave Real, or is he angling after a better deal?

Paris Saint-Germain have a long-standing interest in signing him and AC Milan's new Chinese owners have been in contact this summer with his agent Jorge Mendes.

Zidane and Ronaldo have an excellent relationship, and it was only the Frenchman who could convince the superstar that more rest during the season was for the benefit of himself and the team.
