Cristiano Ronaldo does not want Real Madrid to sign Luis Suarez

Cristiano Ronaldo has told Real Madrid that he would not be pleased if they sign Luis Suarez, according to El Confidencial.

Suarez is widely considered the best striker in the world at the moment after scoring 30-goals in a stellar Premier League campaign with Liverpool. Real Madrid were rumoured to be readying a tempting £70 million offer for the Uruguayan; that was until Ronaldo threw the cat amongst the pigeons at the Bernabeu.

The Real Madrid superstar has a growing influence on the direction of the club and has told Florentino Perez that he does not believe the Liverpool star would compliment his style of play.

Alternatively, Ronaldo told Real Madrid officials how much he likes playing with Karim Benzema - likely to depart for Arsenal if Suarez arrives - and he would rather things stayed the same.

Ronaldo believes Suarez would be a more selfish player and would force the Portugal international to turn into a provider rather than a goalscorer.

Perez was keen to seal a big name striker but must now rethink his options and keeping Benzema, when an exit looked more than likely, now looks like a foregone conclusion.

That is particularly bad news for Arsenal, who reportedly put Benzema at the top of their summer wish list. Arsene Wenger has tracked his compatriot for a seemingly endless amount of time, but with a £100m transfer budget and Benzema approaching the final 12 months of his Real Madrid contract, a deal looked more likely than ever.

However, Ronaldo's influence at Real Madrid may have ended Arsenal's hopes in one fell swoop, leaving Liverpool delighted and Arsenal searching for a new striker target.
