Madrid dismiss Ronaldo speculation

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has laughed off suggestions Cristiano Ronaldo could leave the club this year.

Reports had resurfaced that the 33-year-old would be open to a move to the Chinese Super League after his former Portugal boss Luiz Felipe Scolari – former Guangzhou Evergrande manager – revealed he had asked him about China.

“No, Cristiano has not asked us about leaving,” Perez told reporters, as cited by Diario AS.

“He has a contract in place here and that will not change.”

The Portuguese forward is under contract at the European champions until 2021.
