Cristiano Ronaldo will not leave Real Madrid for Manchester United this summer, ex-Los Blancos boss Jose Mourinho has said.
Speaking about his former star man at the Santiago Bernabeu, Mourinho, who is now with his former club Chelsea, said the Portuguese would not be following in his footsteps to join a club he is already familiar with.
He stated: “I know Ronaldo loves Man United and I know he loves the Premier League, but I think he is going to stay at Real.”
“It’s just a feeling, no contact, nothing just a feeling,” he added.
Mourinho also said the Red Devils would fall short in their attempts to sign Ronaldo because of Madrid’s strong financial position and lack of a need to sell.
He said: “What I know is that Real Madrid is such a rich club they don’t need to sell. It is such a rich club I think they can beat any offer a club can have on Ronaldo.”
