Real Madrid President Perez Confirms Cristiano Ronaldo Will Not Be Returning

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo will not be returning to the club.

The Los Blancoschief also cast doubt over Sergio Ramos' future with the defender out of contract at the end of the season.

During a farcical interview in which Perez, 74, tried to defend the money-grabbing European Super League, he was asked whether the Portuguese would be re-signed.

Perez replied: “They are very good players. Lionel Messi and Cristiano. It's a historical thing.

“Cristiano's return? No. He has a contract with Juventus. But it doesn't make sense for him to come back. I love him a lot, he has given us a lot.”

Perez was also asked about Ronaldo's fellow Real legend Ramos' future, Perez admitted negotiations are proving difficult.
