Move ruled out?

Ronaldo has been extensively linked with a move back to Old Trafford and it has been claimed that Manchester United have already calculated the cost of a deal that would potentially secure the acquisition of the 29-year-old.

However, according to, Real Madrid have made clear to Ronaldo that he will not be leaving the club at the end of the season, and are refusing to even discuss a fee for his potential departure amid fresh links to Manchester United.

It was claimed on Friday that Manchester United had already worked out just how much they believe it would take to sign Ronaldo, with a total expenditure of £140 million including both transfer fee and salary over a proposed four-year deal.

Massive salary

Manchester United would be required to pay Ronaldo £79 million in wages over this period were he to earn the same as his current net salary at Real Madrid, although he could fairly expect a pay increase were a deal to be done.

Louis van Gaal has expressed an interest in recruiting Ronaldo and, despite this supposed stance from Real Madrid and recent comments from the player, this is a story that will continue to run over the next few months.

Chelsea have also been linked with Ronaldo, although his ‘non-existent’ relationship with Jose Mourinho is likely to put paid to any potential move to Stamford Bridge.
