Bernabeu star going nowhere.
Global superstar Cristiano Ronaldo will never leave Spanish giants Real Madrid, admits club president Florentino Perez according to the Guardian.
The Portuguese winger moved to Spain from Manchester United, for a world record breaking £80million, back in 2009. Since the largest transfer in footballing history, the 28 year-old’s future has always come under scrutiny from various news outlets from around the globe.
In recent weeks, Ronaldo was linked with a move back to former employers, and current Premier League champions, Manchester United. Quotes surfaced from the owners of the French big spenders [AS Monaco and Paris Saint Germain] declaring their interest in the former Sporting youngster.
Now further quotes have surfaced from the Liga BBVA 2012/13 runners up’s club president, Florentino Perez, distancing his priced asset from a move away from the Spanish capital.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the cornerstone of our project,” Perez told French news outlet L’Equipe.
“He’s the world’s greatest player and I can now say that he will end his career at Real Madrid. We haven’t received any offer for Cristiano Ronaldo.”
Cristiano has managed a staggering 146 goals in just 135 league games since his arrival in the Spanish capital, yet he has still failed to win over the hearts of Madrid fans after under performing in recent El Clasico’s.
Perez also went on to rubbish talks of newly appointed Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti looking to reunite with some of the players from his former employers PSG, stating : “Real Madrid will not touch any PSG player like Verratti or Ibrahimovic.”
“Ancelotti didn’t ask for any of their players, so maybe my words can calm PSG fans a bit.”
