Real president Perez "not contemplating" Ronaldo departure

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has dismissed reports linking Cristiano Ronaldo with the Bundesliga champions as "completely unfounded", while suggesting the rumours "must be consigned to the realms of fantasy".

Man Utd are reportedly putting together a stunning offer to Real Madrid in order to prise both Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata to Manchester.

Ronaldo is now with Portugal at the FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

Mourinho, though, is said not to want to make a move for the Portugal captain because of his rocky relationship with him during his time as manager at Madrid and Ronaldo's supposed declining form.

Last year, Real Madrid signed Ronaldo to a contract extension that would keep him with the team through June 2021, and his agent claims that his buyout clause is over $1 billion, which clearly limits the realistic suitors.

It's insane how quickly the Ronaldo rumours have accelerated since Friday but I guess that is what happens when the world's best player in Ronaldo is linked with a return to United under Jose Mourinho.

United have been strongly linked with a move for the Portuguese superstar, who scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for the club between 2003 and 2009.

"We're used to being the subject of intense transfer speculation during transfer windows".

'As a rule, we do not comment on these rumours.

Last season, Real Madrid became the first side to retain the Champions League and won the Spanish title for the first time since 2012.

Perez's opponents have criticised reforms in the club statutes that have toughened criteria for aspiring candidates.

Candidates must now have been a member of Real for over 20 years, compared to the old requirement of 10 years, and have a personal fortune of over 75 million euros.
