Cristiano Ronaldo snubbed by Real Madrid as Florentino Perez dismisses chances of emotional transfer return from Man Utd


REAL MADRID president Florentino Perez has dismissed any talk of a return for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Manchester United star, 37, remains eager to quit this summer.

But he has seen a number of avenues blocked off in the transfer market.

Chelsea and Bayern Munich were both tipped to move for Ronaldo before ending their interest.

And the Portugal legend continues to find himself in limbo at Old Trafford with the Premier League season already underway.

One possible route that remained was a shock return to Real Madrid.

Ronaldo spent nine years at the Bernabeu, scoring 450 goals in just 438 games while winning two titles and four Champions Leagues.

Real missed out on signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, leaving a potential gap open for a new forward.

However, Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has brutally ruled out a reunion with Ronaldo this month.

The Real Madrid chief was asked by a cheeky fan in a lobby whether he was going to make a move for Ronaldo.

But Perez laughed off the notion – and added a year to his former employee’s age – saying: “Again? He’s 38 years old!”

It means Ronaldo is increasingly edging towards a Man United stay, with seemingly no takers this summer.

As for Real, it remains to be seen whether they make any more signings after winning last season’s Champions League.

Antonio Rudiger was snapped up from Chelsea on a free transfer.

And the club paid £72million for promising Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

Real have also bid farewell to several players. with Marcelo, Gareth Bale, Isco, Luka Jovic and Borja Mayoral all departing.
