REAL MADRID are reportedly the latest big club to turn down a move for the portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo made a visit to the Spanish capital recently, sparking speculation that he was set to meet Real president Florentino Perez to discuss a return.
The 37-year-old CR7 is a Bernabeu legend having scored a phenomenal 450 goals in 438 matches for the club between 2009 and 2018, winning the Champions League four times during nine successful years with Real Madrid.
This Portugal super star dropped the bombshell after United failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League following a dismal campaign that saw the Manchester United finish in sixth spot.
He wants to rub shoulders with the world’s best on Europe’s biggest stage and is keen to exit Old Trafford in order to do so.
Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are among the leading European clubs who have ruled out a move for him, while Ronaldo rejected a highly lucrative offer from a Saudi Arabian club.
Now Real Madrid can also be struck off the list of suitors, which is dwindling rapidly with the new campaign looming. The report claim that there have not been any meetings between Ronaldo and Los Blancos president Florentino Perez although there are rumours surrounding the forward’s future.
Los Blancos have already splashed around £85m to bring in sign Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco along with ex-Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger, albeit for free.
And they’re focused on getting rid of some deadweight before jumping back into the market, the report adds.
