Mourinho: Ronaldo Cannot Be Sold
There is no prospect, says their manager Jose Mourinho, of Cristiano Ronaldo signing for his old side, Manchester United.
Ronaldo has won 25 trophies in his career, including five league titles, four UEFA Champions League titles and one UEFA European Championship. He is attempting to make it five Champions League titles when Real Madrid face Liverpool on 26 May, which is live on BT Sport [kick off 7.45pm Irish time].
Mourinho was asked about the prospect of signing a player he had at Madrid.
“I don’t think so, but all the people know his history in Manchester, the passion they have for him and that there are players in the world who, if the clubs have the possibility of signing, will not say no,” he noted.
“I believe that Real Madrid cannot sell him, it is prohibited,” the coach told Portuguese newspaper Record.
