Published Add your comment

Real Madrid have "categorically denied" media reports they have a pre-contract agreement to sign Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo.

Madrid have long been linked with a move for the Portugal international and reports in the media claimed former Madrid president Ramon Calderon had negotiated a pre-contract agreement with Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes, but the Spanish giants released a statement denying any such deal is in place.

"In relation to the reports that have appeared in several media in the last few hours regarding the alleged signing of the Manchester United player Cristiano Ronaldo, the club want to categorically deny said information," the statement read. "There exists no pre-agreement, neither with the player, nor with his agent, nor with Manchester United."

It continued: "As is well known, Real Madrid tried to sign the player last summer and Manchester United made it clear that the player was not transferable."
