Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has referred to as a transfer for Cristiano Ronaldo “virtually unattainable” because the ahead appears to be like to power a transfer away from Manchester United.
Ronaldo, 37, held talks at United’s training ground on Tuesday — accompanied by agent Jorge Mendes — after lacking the membership’s preseason tour of Thailand and Australia, citing private causes.
“I’ve mentioned it many instances. I do not know who invented the story about Cristiano. However I am going to let you know, it is virtually unattainable for him to come back to Atletico Madrid,” Cerezo told reporters on Tuesday.
Final month Cerezo said Atletico would wish to usher in €40 million from participant departures to have the ability to register new signings below LaLiga’s squad spending limits.
The membership’s funds have since been boosted by signing two important new sponsorship agreements, together with promoting the naming rights to their Metropolitano stadium to the actual property agency Civitas.
The arrival of Ronaldo could be controversial amongst some followers, given his long-time affiliation with fierce native rivals Real Madrid.
He’s Actual’s all-time document objective scorer, and gained 4 Champions Leagues and two LaLiga titles in a nine-year stint earlier than leaving for Juventus in 2018.
