New Monaco defender Ricardo Carvalho has said his former Real Madrid teammate Cristiano Ronaldo will not be joining him at the Ligue 1 side or return to the Premier League with Manchester United.
Carvalho said Ronaldo will reject offers that come his way this summer in favour of signing a new deal at the Santiago Bernabeu – something that will boost Los Blancos ahead of the new campaign.
In an interview with Macra, he said: “The president is doing everything he can for Cristiano to sign a new contract and he’ll stay.”
Carvalho also spoke of the disappointment of the last campaign in which Los Blancos finished second in the league, lost the Copa del Rey final, and were dumped out of the Champions League at the semi-final stage.
He stated: “We felt that we didn’t end the season well. When we should have been stronger, we weren’t.”
