Cristiano Ronaldo is happy at Real Madrid and wants to retire there, according to Santiago Bernabeu president Florentino Perez.

Manchester United have reportedly been trying to bring their former superstar back to Old Trafford this summer, but it now appears as if their efforts will be thwarted.

Perez was in confident move when speaking to broadcaster Univision and his comments, being carried by AS, suggested any disagreement there may have been Cristiano Ronaldo and los Blancos hierarchy was resolved.

Manchester United fans dreaming of a return to the Premier League for their former number seven will be disappointed to hear Perez claim that Ronaldo is ready to stay with Real Madrid for the remainder of his career and achieving a hero status similar to likes of the great Zinedine Zidane.

“Ronaldo wants to retire at Real Madrid, and we want him to retire here, just like Zidane and so many other great players did,” he said.

“You can be absolutely certain that Cristiano will retire at Real Madrid.”

New Manchester United manager David Moyes is reportedly keen to make a big-name signing early on in his career in charge, with Ronaldo top of that list.

It would likely take something close to the £80million Real Madrid paid United in 2009 to secure the signing of the Portugal captain.

Some reports had suggested the Old Trafford moneymen were trying to enlist the financial help of sponsors Nike and Chevrolet, both of whom are endorsed by 28-year-old, in putting together a financial package that could make the move happen.
